MASON, Ohio (WKRC) - After finishing its regular season with a perfect 16-0 record, Mason is looking to take the momentum into the post-season and a deep run in the OHSAA state tournament.
The Comets have won two of the last three Greater Miami Conference titles, including as outright champions this season.
Last year state championship dreams were cut short in the semifinals, a memory not forgotten this time around.
"It's a much better feeling going into (the state tournament)," said senior midfielder Weston Simmons. "It gives you a lot of confidence going into it especially, which really helps because you have to trust the guys next to you."
"We've had a lot of good teams before, but this probably our best yet," said senior attack Michael Niere. "It means a lot, and I really just want to give these younger guys an opportunity to get what it feels like, and get these older guys as well, an opportunity to just go far and compete at the state level."
The Comets open up postseason play on Wednesday when they host Little Miami.
