Girls’ Varsity Soccer kicked off their season last month, winning five games and losing four.

After nine games, the team is optimistic for the rest of the season.

“I’m super excited for the season ahead of us and cannot wait to see the challenges we face and how we overcome them,” co-captain Shyla Fernandes ‘25 said.

The team is also optimistic about the seven freshman players, all of which are starting or getting significant play time.

One of these freshmen, attacker Hadley Reardon ‘27, scored 12 goals. Overall, the freshmen have scored 22 of the team’s total 24 goals.

Coach Ian Plant stated his excitement and goals for the long-term future of the team,

“Our goal is going to be to progress the program; we want to send people to college to play soccer, and have a winning atmosphere about our team,” Plant said.

Moreover, Plant hopes that the team will finish with a winning record and make the playoffs.

They will play Penguin Hall on Tuesday, October 17 on the road.
