Ottumwa Courier

---- — The Ottumwa boys soccer team had two players named to the CIML Metro Conference all-league teams this year.

Thien Dinh was selected first team all-league and Charlie Altfillisch made second team. In addition, several Bulldogs received honorable mention status including Ismar Argueta, Grieg Duo, Alfredo Gonzalez, Papey Kruah, Jose Leon and Osvaldo and Guillermo Trejo.

While Dinh, Altfillisch and Leon will graduate in June, the Bulldogs will return a number of starters and13 sophomores next season. The boys finished the season with a record of 7-10-1, and, perhaps more importantly, won their first ever posteason game on their home field, when they edged Burlington 1-0 in the first round of Class 3A Substate.
