The Del Valle Conquistadors have experience with nine seniors, they have state championship experience with two state titles in 2005 and 2008, and have coaching experience. Head Coach Bruce Reichman has been the head coach for 28 years, and is the only head coach in Del Valle history, and has his boys soccer team back in the 4A State Championship game.
Del Valle defeated Pharr Valley View, 1-0 in the 4A State Final Four, taking place in Georgetown, Texas. The Conquistadors will face Waco University in the 4A State Championship game, 12:00pm MT Saturday at Birkelback Field in Georgetown, Texas. The Trojans defeated Mesquite Poteet in a shootout 4-3 after a 2-2 tie and the end of regulation and two overtime sessions.
Reichman spoke to Newschannel 9 earlier this week regarding the team and their chances in the State Tournament. "They're peaking both mentally and physically at the right time, and playoffs started, it was a whole new season. They were a little dissapointed with a couple of games during the regular season, but now in the playoffs, they have just been on their 'A' game every game."
