Boys Soccer

MBA boy’s soccer made its debut season at Maranatha Academy in 2017 under the direction of Coach Lane Hansel. Since 2017, the Crusaders have participated in the Wisconsin Association of Christian Schools (WACS) and the Indian Trails Conference (ITC).  The team took on new leadership in the 2020 season under TJ (Timothy) Lacock as Head Coach, and Alex Boyle as assistant coach. Under Coach Lacock, the Crusadars brought home their first program championship in October 2022, winning the WACS State Tournament on their home field. Matthew Waller will take over as head coach in the Fall 2023 season as the Crusaders seek to build upon their success.
