Six Suffolk athletes were selected to the first and second All-District teams for boys’ soccer.

The Suffolk boys’ soccer teams had some quality seasons this year. One of the most impressive came from Nansemond River High School, which finished 14-3-2. Because of that, they finished with the most Suffolk selections of the Southeastern District teams, with four.

Taylor Jones, Tucker Leverone, Doug Hill and Kendall Littlejohn all made the All-District first team for Nansemond River. The Warriors had a strong season and were able to get some key wins this season. A lot of players who were in reserve spots stepped into starting roles and were able to immediately step in and contribute.

“We play in one of the best districts with so many good players,” Leverone said. “And to have four guys make the first team is incredible. It is definitely some great motivation to have four underclassmen make the first team because it shows the potential we have next year. We are all excited about the talent and chemistry we have returning.”

Jean Claude Bilé of King’s Fork High School and Tineo Hyman of Lakeland High School were both second team selections. Though neither team went to regionals, both individuals had strong seasons. Bilé will be heading into his sophomore season next year, while Hyman will be heading into his senior season.

With all the All-District members for Suffolk being underclassmen this year, the future will be bright for Suffolk soccer.
