The Saint Peter’s Prep soccer team, ranked number 12 in the NJ.com preseason top 20, is looking to rebuild off one of the best seasons in Prep history. The team, which finished with a record of 14-7-1, won the Hudson County title and went onto the quarterfinal round of the NJSIAA North Jersey, Non-Public A Tournament. The Hudson County title was the second in school history and the first since 2016.

Coach Josh Jantas, who won the Hudson County Conference Red Division Coach of the Year last season, is back for his 13th season as head coach and will continue his successful campaign. Jantas will be looking for some new talent to step up after graduating 16 seniors last season.

Anthony Warmuz, who had 15 goals and five assists last season, will lead the charge for Prep. Warmuz had a breakout season last year, which saw him scored four goals in the Hudson County Tournament and finish with first-team honors in the Hudson County Conference Red Division.

Other key returners for the Marauders are Johannes Dirx, who had two goals and seven assists last season, Jair Arriaga, Soren Mayendia, JD Farkas and Aramchan Lee.
