The spring sports season has finally arrived and with it, the beginning of the girls soccer season. The coaches were put into a rough situation after tryouts due to the low turnout and were forced to cut the freshmen team. Fortunately, with the incoming players showing some promise, three freshmen, Brynna Rutherford, Courtney Area and Julia Kristensen were able to make the varsity team.

“I was really nervous at the beginning, because I didn’t know how I was going to play with the other girls, but I’m super excited because I’ve become really good friends with everyone and I hope we get to grow and develop as a team,” said Rutherford.

The freshmen girls hold much anticipation for the upcoming season and seem to have made an impression on the senior varsity players. Some would assume a rivalry may form, but in this case, the exact opposite has occurred.

“I think they are a really good addition to the team,” senior Caty Arnold said. “They bring their own unique styles of play to our game and add to our diversity of play.”

After only a couple weeks of practice, the varsity team was put to the test. Their first game had arrived. On March 20, the girls walked out onto the St. Charles High School field, as a team, for the first time.

“It was difficult at first, because we didn’t quite have the chemistry that we needed to have,” Kristensen said. “I mean, we’ve only been playing with one another for a couple of weeks, but I’m sure we will progress as the season goes on.”

The varsity girls were able to take the win after a double overtime and a hard fight against St. Charles High School. As the season begins for the freshmen, the seniors can’t help but remember the nearing end of their high school careers.

“I think the season has a lot of promise if we all work hard and work together,” senior Maddy Wood said. “We are a dangerous team. I think I will be leaving the team in good hands and that the juniors will be great leaders.”
