Kabongo Highlights Bulldog All-MRAC Boys Soccer Honors

The Missouri River Activities Conference has announced their 2023 All-Conference teams for the boys soccer season. Le Mars Community earned three postseason honors for the year in Jovany Kabongo as a first-teamer, Ben Martin as a second-teamer, and Elijah Dougherty as an honorable mention selection.

Jovany Kabongo once again highlighted the Bulldog season leading the team in goals, assists, points, shots, and shooting percentage and leading them to a program-best seven wins.

Ben Martin was named to the second team for his efforts this season. Martin was the only other Bulldog with double-digit goals on the year with 10. Of his shots on goal, 40% of them ended up in the back of the net this season.
