CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

Crisp county hasn't been known for its soccer program lately, but their head coach has them going in the right direction.

The Cougars have started their season 1-3 so far. Last year, they finished 5th in the region with a record of 9-6-2.

They missed the postseason by a hair, making it five straight years watching the playoffs from the sidelines.

Head Coach Mike McGinnis says winning the close ones will be the difference in snapping the postseason drought.

"The program's grown from about 35 kids to about 110 kids in the program," said McGinnis. "Just the fact that they're wanting to come out and compete and practice. Like I said today, we called a voluntary practice today so several kids showed up right after church to get started and just work on little things."

This is his third year leading the Cougars. Crisp County takes on Warner Robbins tomorrow evening.
