For the first time in program history, the Waxahachie Indian soccer team has claimed back-to-back district championships.

The feat not only would've been improbable two seasons ago, but impossible. Waxahachie claimed its first district title last season.

The Indians officially clinched the District 10-5A crown after defeating Mansfield Summit in the regular-season finale Tuesday night in Mansfield, 5-0.

Rolando Nieto scored a pair of goals to lead the Tribe. Emmanuel Nwokonko, TJ Lacey and Jordan Beechum also scored goals on assists by Austin Andrus (2), Nieto, and Nwokonko.

Thomas Caliendo and Crisanto Perez combined for the clean sheet in goal.

The win is the seventh straight victory for the Indians, who have not lost a match since Feb. 6 against Mansfield Timberview (2-1). In fact, Waxahachie has lost just twice since falling to Aledo (2-1) on January 12, and finished the regular season 17-4-1 overall and 11-2-1 in District 10-5A.

Two Indians have also recently excelled off of the pitch and in the classroom, as Joshua Duarte and Riley Sample were both named to the THSCA and TASCO Academic All-State teams.


Waxahachie will play a playoff-warmup game at 5:30 p.m. Monday on the road against Kemp.


The future of Indian soccer remains bright after the Waxahachie junior varsity team ended their season with an 8-0 win against Summit.

The junior varsity squad finished the season 17-2-1 and 10-2-1 in District 10-5A.
