Their record may be 2-8-3, but the girls varsity soccer team has
high hopes for the remainder of the season. The team lost many valuable players
from last year's graduated seniors and is now made up of mostly sophomores.
There are, however, several freshmen bringing a breath of fresh air into the
team in the wake of the lost seniors.
Spending one and one-half hours every day with their teammates has made the girls close. "I enjoy spending the time with the girls on my team," said sophomore Kendra Dean. They all fundraise together, selling spaghetti at football games and washing cars. The team spends its time together in other ways, also. They hold team dinners for themselves and their families and have a Big Sister-Little Sister program with the junior varsity girls.
Besides just holding team functions, the girls also spend a lot of time on the field. They have been playing well this season, thanks in large part to their coach, Mr. Mo Brown, training them and being fair. "He takes the players' input," says Kaitlin Tyree. The captains are seniors Kayleigh O'Brien and Ashleigh Easton. One of the best teams WG has played so far was Lake Catholic, whose record is 10-1, and they only lost to them by a close 1-0 score. "We have fun and work hard," says Tyree. "We just have some struggles we need to work through."
