Since the graduation of five key seniors last year, the girls soccer team is doing their best to overcome the amount of adversity in the team that comes with being so young.

“One of our strengths is determinations we wall want to win,” senior Kesleigh Boone said.

The boys soccer are currently 12-3-2, and clench second in district.  

“We have come a long way,” boys soccer head coach Ben Parks said.
