Al Silvas, head coach of St. Mary’s Dominican High School’s Varsity Soccer team, marked his 300th win on January 4th against St. Louis Catholic by a score of 4-1. Prior to joining Dominican during the 2008-09 school year, Silvas coached at St. Martin’s Episcopal where he accumulated 82 wins over eight seasons.
Silvas attributes Dominican’s consistent wins to players who understand their roles and embrace the team’s philosophy. “Over the years we have created a winning culture. Our team trains hard and plays hard. We respect our opponents and bring our very best to every game. In the end for me, the 300 wins are a byproduct,” said Silvas who values the bonds made over the years with players and their families.
