Love John. I grew up with one of his daughters and we often played indoor soccer with John. The man is a competitor and loves the game! Great to see him succeed!John Volker. I found this video with highlights of their match against Milford and he was interviewed by Scott Springer after.

With respect to girls Soccer & Volleyball, while playing for your high school means a lot to you/family emotionally, it doesn't mean too much to going on playing at the next level - college coaches go to club tournaments or club practices to recruit. Once the high school sport is done, they transition to their club. Unless you are a freak of an athlete, if you are not playing club, chances are you won't be playing on a high level high school team in the GGCL. IMHO, spending money on resources for these sports would be fruitless.One thing I will add and this criticism may not be fair given many of the sports are improving as of late.
If Seton is going to take the next step athletically (not sure they want to), they need to look at the coaches, facilities, and players to identify ways to improve.
Right now whoever shows up as Freshman, and are the best players, remain the best players for four years. They are not developing talent or (until recently) attracting top coaches, but rather relying on those players to dedicate themselves to get better. This is primarily because they don't even have a weight-room nor do they have coaches involved "out of season". The players all pay for costly outside resources (playing club, lifting, training, nutrition, etc) and are responsible for getting bigger stronger faster on her own.
Id guess most of the GGCL schools are similar but I do think this is where the public schools in the 'burbs could have an eventual advantage. Mason, Lakota, Lebanon, Springboro, etc all have access to resources on campus...Seton does not.
Just my opinion, but if Seton wants to take the next step, an on campus training facility and improved year-round coaching across the programs will be necessary.
