Our girls varsity soccer team won their first ever state title on April 16, against Wakeland. They had an incredible season with many of their games being a complete shutout. Taking a look back onto the girls season it shows how far teamwork, hard work, determination, and having fun can get you.
“From the beginning of the season seeing all the talent in the program, I knew we had the capability to compete for state.” Varsity senior Sofia Picucci said, “We have such a strong and dedicated team. It’s really fun getting to be a part of such an amazing program and share this experience together.”
The seniors on the team have either worked up to varsity or have been on varsity since their freshman year. Amidst the crazy pandemic they managed to push through and even make history with their first state title in girls soccer.
“I don’t even know how to feel right now we’ve worked two years for this and it’s I’m just so proud of our team and so thankful for all the underclassmen, they’ve put everything into winning this for our seniors.” Senior Charliegh Phipps said.
All the players put their heart, soul, and sweat into their season, but of course none of this would be possible without the guidance of their coaches.
“I would like to thank the coaches for all the support and time they have given to the team.” Picucci said,” Coach P was a new coach my freshman year and I think she has done an amazing job building this program. She has created a family atmosphere for the team that is always super supportive. Coach Harlow has also had a big part in this program. She has been my coach since 7th grade. She and Coach P make the perfect team and have made my high school soccer experience so worthwhile and amazing. I also want to thank Coach Amrine for always pushing me further than I think I can go and being such a strong part of getting us ready for state.”
