Fall 2023 Sports Season

Athletes Show Strength, Resilience and Teamwork During Fall Season

A team’s record only tells part of a team’s story. It tells the number of wins or losses, but it does not give any indication of how close a loss was to a win or how much sweat and determination it took to pull off the hardest-fought victory. Atlantis’s student-athletes played their hearts out throughout the entire fall season. Their coaches shared some of this past season’s highlights.

Boys Varsity Soccer

“The Boys’ Varsity Soccer team came into the season with several returning starters. Although the season did not start the way we had anticipated, our players stayed true to our team’s principles and, as a result, qualified for the state tournament. This success came with heavy contributions from sophomore Conrado Silva, and juniors Shawn Kalunga, Ryan Ferreira, and Thalys Silva. Coach Madeira and I want to thank our lone senior, Devon Ferreira, for his four years of unwavering devotion to the program, and wish him all the best in his future endeavors. We are very optimistic and hold high hopes for this team come the fall of 2024.” – Head Coach Nathan Mello

Boys JV Soccer

“Tasked with a difficult schedule and many new players, the ACS JV Boys Soccer team showed great improvement, teamwork, and resilience throughout the year.  The season had its ups and downs, and unfortunately, we ended with a 0-10 record.  However, we do not consider it a lost season, as we all grew as players and learned valuable lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, and hard work.  I appreciate the efforts of all of the boys this year and look forward to coaching them again next year.” – Head Coach Andrew Hartman

Girls Varsity Soccer

“The Tritons Girls’ Soccer team came together in August for only the second time at the Varsity level. The team was made up of 17 players from the 7th through the 12th grades. They played 14 varsity games, plus two pre-season games, and scored 14 goals. This was a rebuilding season, having lost five seniors and three incoming freshmen from last year. Senior Captain Jayda Braga scored seven of the goals, while Freshman Striker Sophia Ferreira scored five times. Our Triton Girls Varsity Soccer team is now well prepared for the coming years through a succession plan covering each position. As only three seniors will be leaving us, and without any Seniors next season, the focus is on strengthening the outside defenders and midfielders, each of whom have two years of varsity experience, with this core group focusing on results in the coming two years.” – Head Coach Joseph Keiser


“Our Triton Volleyball team showed us what unity looked like this year. As a small, tight-knit Varsity team, they worked hard to master their positions and show up for the team as a whole. Our varsity players were leaders for the entire volleyball program. They provided guidance and mentorship to our younger players, and even to my second-grade students giving them a glimpse of what high school looks like as a Triton. It has been a pleasure watching the girls grow as players and friends on and off the court. We are so sad to lose three wonderful seniors, Laryssa DeSouza, Rebecca De Moraes, and Ayla Roais. But the team is very hopeful for next year with several strong juniors to carry the strength and determination established on the court this year. We came out to compete this year, and while we just fell short of playoffs, there is no doubt in my mind next year will be another story for the team. – Head Coach Katherine Patterson


“The cheer program is growing. The 2023 fall season was the biggest team we’ve had, starting the season off with 21 athletes. We started our season off hosting a car wash and raised enough money to get new warmups. We mastered several new stunting skills through the season, including three full one-legged stunts and three twist cradles. Every year, we use Pep Rally as our showcase. This year, the cheer team had an incredibly big role during the pep rally by hyping up the sports team, guiding the students to their correct section, and amping up the crowd.  The team was able to completely nail their performance by hitting all their stunts and tumbling.  We also attended our first Thanksgiving Day game against Case High School; the team was excited to travel and interact with another cheer team. We ended the season with our annual team dinner.” – Head coach Brianna DeAguiar


“Despite a 2-8 record, the Tritons Football team displayed resilience, losing several close games. The overall commitment and efforts of the team need to be praised, and there’s optimism for the program’s future. Having a huge roster turn-around, injuries, and external factors were some of the adversity we faced. The slogan of “next man up” was our motto this season. Also, embarking on a new Thanksgiving game tradition was an exciting time for our program as well. As the program still is in the infantry stages, the growth over the last two years has been tremendous.” – Football Head Coach Kazeem Adediran
