Diogo Rodrigues

Tarpon Springs H.S.

Soccer/Senior

THIS WEEK’S FEATS:

Rodrigues helped set up much of Tarpon Springs’ offense during its run to a District 3A-10 championship. He assisted on four total goals and scored one himself in the Spongers’ 4-1 semifinal win over Lakewood.

LONG WAIT:

Tarpon Springs has waited a long time but its boys soccer team is headed into the postseason for the first time since 1997. Last Friday’s 2-0 win over Dunedin, with Rodrigues assisting on both goals, allows the Spongers to go into the Class 3A tournament as district champions.

QUOTABLES:

“It definitely is nice to be back where we used to be.” – Tarpon Springs coach George Hourdas on the Spongers’ playoff return.
