As the girls soccer team finishes district play, they are currently undefeated and sitting in first place in district. The Eagles have not let an opponent score on them in the past three games and are working hard to continue getting better so they can maintain that shutout streak in their final district games. 

“We often practice everyday except on Sundays,” senior soccer player Cortlynn Boone said. “Practice normally starts after 6th period around 3:15 and then finishes around 4:45-5.” 

The soccer team has used their strong relationship to be successful on the field. 

“I think for the most part the team gets along well,” head soccer coach Marc Koke said.  “We have really good chemistry on the field.” 

One thing that has contributed to the Eagles’ success is good communication between the grades.

“I enjoy playing high school soccer, most of the girls on my teams are fun to be around, and are really good players,” freshman goalie Gracie Williamson said. “The upperclassmen are all kind and are helpful showing the other freshmen and i what to do and how to do it if we don’t know what to do.”

Many of the soccer players are involved in both school and club soccer for extra practice. 

“I am on a club team, therefore, I play a lot of soccer outside of school,” Boone said. “I have two practices a week for two to three hours each day. Then I play games on the weekends anywhere from two to three a weekend, depending on the month and what leagues we are in at that time.”

The soccer players have got more not by just playing soccer but becoming a family.

“High school soccer is one of the best things that has happened to me,” Boone said, “not because of the soccer part but because I have made friends that I will truly talk to for the rest of my life.”
