Girls’ varsity soccer team congratulates coach Jason Sellers on his 200th career win.

Tuesday night included a memorable moment for the Pattonville girls’ varsity soccer coach. Jason Sellers earned his 200th career win.

Sellers joined the Pattonville staff in 2016 as a health teacher and brought a lot of experience to the soccer field as he immediately became the new varsity girls’ soccer coach.

With his 21 years of experience and 14 years as a head coach at Hazelwood West, he took over the varsity girls’ soccer program continuing to collect victories to his career total.

The girls played against Oakville in the monumental game.

“The girls were scaring me in the beginning of the game,” he said.

That was because the Pirates were down 1-0 in the first half and then in the second half, got down 2-0.

“But we came out on top in the end.”

The first goal was scored by freshman Kaeli Benedict and assisted by junior Kendall Battle who also scored the second goal of the game.

The goal that put the Pirates on top 3-2 was by freshman Jordyn Lodes and also assisted by Kendall Battle.

At the end of the game, the girls rewarded their coach with a sign that read “Congrats on 200 wins JSells” and a cookie cake.

Sellers was shaking hands with the team and coaches and it was noticeable that he was trying to keep himself contained, but he was so happy.

“Thank you so much girls,” Sellers said to his team.

After many pictures with the team, sign, and cookie cake, Sellers finally got to enjoy himself and take joy in his 200th win.
