Ontario Christian soccer coach wins 300th game

Ontario Christian boys soccer coach Len Fakkema won his 300th career game on Tuesday, an 8-0 victory over Aquinas. This is Fakkema’s 11th year at Ontario Christian, where he has earned 164 of his wins. He began his soccer coaching career in 1993 by starting the program at Lynden Christian in Lynden, Wash.

Fakkema said he only informed his team captains of the approaching milestone, but the captains shared the news with the rest of the team after win No. 299 on Friday.

“I didn’t think about it until the beginning of the season and figured I’d better total it up because this could be the year,” Fakkema said. “It’s quite an accomplishment.”
