Girls’ soccer seeking high seed for playoffs

Crista Robles, Adviser

The pursuit of a league title for the girls’ soccer team was damaged by a loss to Lodi, 6-4.

Because the season is not over, there are many things to improve on.

“We need to improve on our health we have a lot of injured players at the moment. I’m knit picking, but offensively we could clean up a few things. Overall, the girls are killing it this year,” Coach Nate Perry said.

This year we have sustained just as many injuries as last year, but due to our depth, I believe we will be able to retain our spot at the top of league.”

“Our senior captains Iris Cruz, Taylor Boren, Ashley Hallen, and Jacqui Frizzi do a great job and play a big role,” Perry said

Cruz has been playing soccer since she was five years old and is now one of four captains on the team.

“In the beginning of the season it, was a little rocky because we didn’t really connect as a team on the field, midway through league however, we started working well together as a team and not as individuals,” Cruz said.

“We are on our last round of league, so I’m feeling really confident in the team I have no doubt that we will finish as league champions if we continue to play strong and smart,” Cruz said.

Captain Frizzi has also played soccer since she was five and joined a competitive team at the age of 10. Through her years of soccer she had faced many injuries such as severe plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis; however, she continues to play.

“My goal for the season is for the team to be first in league and make it to the finals in playoffs,” Frizzi said, “We’re on track to win league, so if we can stay focused and minimize our injuries, then I think we can not only win league, but do really well in playoffs.”

“We just need to keep rolling,” Perry said.
