This was a season no one who witnessed it will forget.
Cathedral High School girls soccer achieved nearly all it could possibly achieve in 2020, doing so while overcoming adversity. That made it one of the most memorable and successful seasons in program history.
Missing the state title by the narrowest of margins didn’t change that.
“They deserved to have a championship at the end, but that’s not what was to be,” Irish girls soccer coach Marc Behringer said. “The girls just did an incredible job this year. No other...

New season, usual approach.
And while COVID-19 means playing the 2020 season in unusual circumstances, Cathedral High School girls soccer coach Marc Behringer is confident the program’s approach can continue to work.
The ’20 Irish are capable of a postseason push – and of accomplishing their season goal of “Taking Back the ‘Ship.” Behringer said they’ll just need to continue developing and working.
“That’s what we do,” Behringer said in early September.
What the Irish also do is annu...
All in all, Marc Behringer couldn’t have been more pleased.
Cathedral High School girls soccer remained strong in 2019, maintaining its longtime tradition as one of the state’s top programs. Falling just short in the postseason didn’t change that.
“This group of seniors did their job,” Behringer, the Irish’s coach, said shortly after the ’19 season ended with a loss in the sectional tournament. “As far as continuing the level of expectations, the level of excellence, our tradition … this team d...
Congratulations to our boys and girls soccer teams on winning their city tournaments.

The boys team defeated Cardinal Ritter 2-1 with Nicholas Victor scoring both goals for the Irish!
The 2019 Cathedral High School girls soccer regular season hasn’t been close to easy.
But as Irish coach Marc Behringer sees it, the rough road of a difficult schedule could mean being able to better navigate the postseason path.
And around Irish soccer, that’s whole idea.
“We’ve played such a difficult schedule that it exposes all of the things we need to work on,” Behringer said as the Irish prepared for a 2019 postseason that will begin with the City Tournament at Bishop Chatard High School the week of September ...

All season long, Marc Behringer preached to his team the importance of “being ready to play from the outset.”
So he was thrilled when his girls’ soccer team of Cathedral High School in Indianapolis scored the first goal just 93 seconds into the Indiana High School Athletic Association’s Class 2A championship match on Oct. 27.
“The first thing I did was stop and look up at the heavens and say, ‘Thank you,’ ” Behringer recalls.
Being a coach, Behringer then immediately focused on the second thing tha...
Whatever the outcome, it would have been special.
