“Playing soccer is fun because we get to kick things,” senior captain Emily Pierson stays positive even though the girls’ soccer season has been difficult and not exactly productive with a record of 3-10-3.
“We’ve played some really good games and we’re playing much better as a team. We just haven’t been able to finish,” says senior forward Emily Smith.
Playing well as a team was one of the Lady Viking’s main goals this season, as well as building a base for future years. Seeing as all freshmen save for an injured Caleigh Neil have received significant playing time with three freshmen, Morgan Pierson, Callan Banks and Holly Farkosh earning starting spots along their upperclassmen counterparts, that goal looks to have been reached as well.
“I really like all the girls and I just have fun playing with the team,” says Farkosh, a defender.
The Lady Vikes will graduate nine seniors, including seven starters, but they will return 12 girls and hopefully have generated enough interest to attract some new talent next year.
“I just have fun playing with the team. They’re a great group and we’re just enjoying the time we have together,” Smith sums up the year.
