Sensational sophomore Smith was superb on the soccer field in 2019

Mount Si forward Sully Smith was a goal-scoring machine on the pitch.

The Mount Si Wildcats boys soccer program’s historic season is fresh in the minds of the entire Snoqualmie Valley.

The Wildcats, who advanced the furthest of any Wildcats boys soccer team in school history, lost 2-1 to the Puyallup Vikings in the 4A state championship game on May 25.

Mount Si sophomore Sully Smith, who scored a team-high 16 goals this past season, was in reflection mode just three days following the season’s conclusion.

“It was just a great group of guys. We were all a really tight-knit group. It was an amazing season,” Smith said during a phone interview on May 28.

Smith said the addition of senior Drew Harris to the varsity team this spring paid dividends. Harris, who played for the Seattle Sounders Academy the past two seasons, decided to play his senior season (2019) with the Wildcats varsity soccer program.

“Drew was just a great passer. He was great with the ball. He probably assisted on half of the goals I scored. He was an amazing player. He came in with all of that experience (two years with the Seattle Sounders Academy) and he brought that to us,” Smith said of Harris.

Smith is looking forward to his junior season in 2020.

“I just can’t wait. This year I was more of a silent leader. Next year I will be able to be more out there and express myself a little more. I want to help us keep winning and keep growing as a team. We just have to continue to play together,” Smith explained.

Recently the Snoqualmie Valley Record had an opportunity to ask Smith a few questions about his life away from the soccer field.

Snoqualmie Valley Record: What is your favorite movie of all time?

Sully Smith: I’m going to go with “Top Gun.” I have always liked it. I watched it a lot when I was younger.

SVR: What kind of music do you listen to the most right now?

SS: I got to say country music. My favorite artist is Kenny Chesney.

SVR: What is your favorite restaurant in the Snoqualmie/North Bend area?

SS: North Bend Bar & Grill. It has always been my favorite.

SVR: If you could pick one person to go to dinner with, who would it be?

SS: My mom and dad. I can honestly talk to them about anything.

SVR: How many text messages do you send per day?

SS: I probably send around 25 to 30 per day.

SVR: Where do you see yourself in five years?

SS: Hopefully at the end of my college soccer career.
