This years girls varsity soccer captains, Emma Foy ’17, Cam Zak and Katherine Bird both ’18, plan on a successful season.

“We’re looking forward to hopefully a better season and win more games, but we’re in a tough league, so we’re going to have to work as hard as possible”, Zak said.

Last year the team didn’t have the best season, Zak said, but they’ve been doing offseason training and are expecting improvement.

Chris Kelly, girls varsity soccer coach, said they’ve been doing a lot a lot of preseason work.

“We’ve done two weeks of conditioning. The girls have been practicing once a week at total soccer and training once a week at fusion,” Kelly said.

In comparison to last season, the team should be a lot more fit and prepared, Zak said.

“Last year we didn’t do as much preseason condition, which could’ve set us behind,” Zak said.

Although they’ve done a good amount of preparation there definitely will be obstacles along the way, Kelly said.

“This season I think our biggest challenge will be teaching the girls how to play as a team not as individuals”, Kelly said.

Both Zak and Kelly said they would like to see their team beat north and win districts.  Making it into playoffs and regionals would also be awesome, Zak said.

“Hopefully we’ll have a fun season with a lot of team bonding experiences,” Foy said.

Coach Kelly said he has high expectations for the girls and he’s confident they’ll be putting a lot of effort and hard work in.
