The Girl Soccer Team is Literal Goals
Updated: Mar 5, 2019
“Our biggest competitor was most definitely ourselves- we have never had the best winning streak. Our mental attitude in the beginning displayed this, but we conquered it as the season went on,” Alexis Jurek stated after the girls’ soccer game on October 6th. The game ended with the girl’s behind 0-7. Adams may have taken this victory, but the loss was not a good indication of their overall season. Their season was full of excellent ball-handling and valiant effort from not only their star players but the whole team as well.
The team tied their first game on August 29th against LaPorte, with a score of 1-1. The team tied again with Elkhart Christian Academy on September 5th, with another score of 1-1. They won their first game on September 26th against Trinity (which was only varsity), with a stunning score of 4-0.The last, but best, game was against Riley High School on October 1st. The score was 4-0 and many of the players celebrated senior night- even some of the injured seniors started.
Even though the season is over, Coach Barwick has high hopes for next year. He believes that the team will build off of how they finished. Finally, he explains how the whole team will miss the seniors, but they’re grateful for them.
“I think they showed the younger players how much effort and physical play is required to play at the varsity level,” Coach Barwick expressed.
Even though the girls didn’t get the best winning streak, the team as a whole improved both physically and mentally proving their real strength. We all have high hope and anticipation for the next season.
