The Girls Soccer team has stepped under the spotlight this season, as they not only represent the Spartans for the first time ever in this year’s Friday Homecoming game, but attempt to battle their way to the state tournament. Last year’s season ended with a “golden goal” in overtime during a section game against Convent of the Visitation, cutting short their journey to State tournament before it had a chance to begin.
The team’s captain this year are seniors Minnie Arnold and Taylor Rients, and the team’s head coach is Ben Bollinger Danielson.
Although they’ve only won two game so far, the team is continuing to work hard and not giving up. “We’ve not gotten the results we’ve wanted now but sections are what counts. Don’t underestimate us based on our record,” junior Ella Matticks said.
To make it past section this year, the team has been working hard to set smaller goals they can achieve throughout the season: “Our main goals are to be more attack oriented, play more off of each other’s strengths, make it to state, win our conference, be a team that the school wants to cheer for, and just play the beautiful game and be entertaining to watch,” Rients said. “It always pumps us up when fans are there and when they are loud and proud. We are very honored to be the Homecoming game this year and hope fans and friends can be there,” Rients added.
