The girls’ varsity soccer team kicked off their pre-season with a 3-0 winning streak, but now that district is almost over, the team isn’t looking at a winning season.
Since Feb. 8, when district started, the girls have lost all their games except two; a (0-0) tie against Johnson and a close (1-0) win in their second game against Lee. The team’s statistics show slight improvement in the last five games against Johnson, Roosevelt, Churchill, Reagan and their recent win against Lee.
“We’ve been working hard and giving it our all in every game,” sophomore Jacqueline Esquivel said.
This year, the team has many returning lettermen, and that adds to the team’s unity on the field and brought new friendships. The graduating girls on the team feel that playing soccer during their high school career was a good experience and hope to continue being associated with the sport throughout out the next few years of their life.
“I’ve learned a lot,” senior Kathryn Vasquez said. “I’m not going to play legitimately on a team but I will be playing soccer, it’s been a big part of my life.”
The team will be closing their season today, March 22 against MacArthur at 5 p.m. at the BAC-W Soccer Field.
“The kids have been working hard in every game and every minute,” coach Audrey Ambrose said. “We look forward to the coming season next year with the returning players and the new freshmen.”
