The JV girls’ soccer team bonds before their home opener against Quince Orchard.

The girls’ junior varsity soccer team finished the season with a 2-6 record. Despite their record, the team showed lots of promise. The already strong team is in good hands for the future. 

The team finished their season off on a strong note beating Richard Montgomery 3-0. The team morale has been high the whole season, all stemming from coach Cara Traub. 

Traub always tries to make the bond the team possesses stronger. Traub said that the team’s goal for the season was to “continue to maintain the enthusiasm and work together as a team when facing our opponents,” Traub said. 

The girls’ soccer program emphasizes a strong bond between the players, and this formula has helped hoist the varsity team to one of the best records in the county. 

The team shared a strong bond that made the players and coaches fall in love with the team. “My favorite part about coaching the team is having the opportunity to coach a group of talented, passionate athletes. The players are supportive of each other on and off the field and are always willing to put forth 110% effort, which makes practices and games fun and competitive,” Traub said. 

I am very happy with how the team is performing and although we’ve lost some, we’ve been improving on our communication and skills which is great.”

Junior right wing and captain Vivian Pissani said she is pleased with how the team has progressed throughout their season. “I am very happy with how the team is performing and although we’ve lost some, we’ve been improving on our communication and skills which is great,” Pissani said.

Pissani was also happy about their team’s skills improving. The team had plenty of strong points, but “the strongest part of the team right now is being able to pass quickly and accurately and move the ball around well,” Passani said.

Sophomore midfielder Malia Schmelzer said she believes that the team possesses vital qualities. “I think we really got along well. We had each other’s backs, especially as the season progressed, but we also could have fun,” Schmelzer said.
