Coach Noel Breger said there were other firsts or notable moments as well. The team had its largest home crowd ever at what the referees now lovingly refer to as "Sun Field". It was the first time the Gators had an honorary captain. Elementary school player Micah Johnson not only accompanied captains Max and Scott Gaddy, Daishawn Smith, and Gideon Garcia to meet the opposing captains at midfield, but led the pregame cheer.

Finally, it is the first time the team has qualified for STATE! The Gators have locked down at least the 4th seed for Central Texas as they head into weekend play against Regents School of Austin.

The team greatly appreciated the fans, the parents, and faculty for coming out and support them on a special night.
