For the past two seasons, the Bozeman Hawks boy's soccer team has been the best in Montana, both years cruising to state championships.
Now the team has a three-peat on their minds.
"I think that we're going to be competitive this year,” said head coach Hunter Terry. “I pretty much say the same thing every year. We're going to lose some and we're going to win some. Hopefully we win a lot more than we lose. I think we're going to be strong."
Right now, the Hawks are back on the field for their annual summer camp.
Some say it's the official start to the new season.
"I think for a lot of us it feels like the start just because there is less than a month for soccer,” said Nate Hense, Bozeman center back. “This is definitely the time where we start getting back into the groove. I guess you can say it's the official start of the season."
"It's getting back into it, I guess,” said Benjamin Wollant, a mid-fielder. “We're getting some touches, getting to work with the team again. It's not nearly as intense as the regular season, but it's good to get going again."
The Hawks return a core group of seniors that had valuable playing time last year.
But their leaders say they don't feel much pressure heading into the season.
"I think the pressure is always on,” Hense said. “I think that we're going to play the same as we played last season. There's definitely a different vibe that we have. I feel like we should just do it the same way."
"I don't feel any pressure,” said Coach Terry. “The only thing that matters to me is the first game when we play Sentinel. Everything else doesn't matter. I don't want to think about the second game or the third game. The only pressure I feel is to get my team prepared enough for the first game."
