The JV Girls Soccer season ended with lots of tears and smiles. Throughout the season, many freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors came together over their love for soccer. The bonds that they share formed shared failures and successes that will carry these friendships far.

“I loved bonding with the lower and upper classmen throughout the season. We’re not just a team anymore, we’re a family,” said sophomore Nicole Crone.

The JV team also faced many challenges throughout the season. One was the dreaded game against Oak Hills. Last season, five players were injured and out for a majority of the season because of the aggressive behavior from the Oak Hills team.

“This year the team and coaches, as well as the refs made a huge effort to keep the game clean. We did a great job of not getting physical with the players and we didn’t back down even though we were all intimidated,” said Crone.

Although the season had its ups and downs, the players never missed a chance to come together for pasta and a good laugh.

“My favorite part of the whole season was bonding with my teammates through pasta parties, practices, and challenging games. These weren’t always fun, but they definitely paid off,”said Crone.

The improvement of the team was primarily centered on communication and respect for each other. With the fun things the team did together, they created a family bond that helped to end the season on a happy note. Here are the team’s statistics.
