Girls varsity soccer is one winter sport that had a great season. From easy wins at home to close battles at away games, they have done it and gave it their all time and time again.
“The most challenging game was beating Barron Collier,” sophomore Molly Vickaryous said. “They are our rivals and it is a very important game to the team and our school.”
Although winning is the main goal, there are other aspects that are just as important on the field and off the field.
“It’s all about connecting with the players, learning from each other, and working as a team,” sophomore Caprice Morley said. “Without that we wouldn’t have been as successful as we have been.”
The drive for competing can sometimes run dry if there isn’t a good support system, but the girls on the team are always there for each other. The varsity team has won seven games in the 2021-2022 season.
“My biggest supporter is my dad,” Vickaryous said. “He has supported me all throughout my sports career and also began it at a young age by inspiring my love for soccer.”
With the season coming to an end, senior night was an impactful and surreal moment for many players. They played against Immokalee High School and won their last home game of the year.
“Over the years I have learned a lot and I’m sad to say goodbye to my teammates and my school,” senior varsity captain Coral Morley said. “I am extremely grateful for everyone who has supported me and helped me become the player I am today.”
