The Lady Vikings soccer team is filled with excitement both on and off the field. Though they lost their game August 23 against Woodrow Wilson, they were successful the following day with a win against Poca.
Senior Tori Quick says the main goal is “To have a successful team, and have fun.”
The senior players include Quick, Kaitlin Chinn, Molli Cunningham, Erica Gibson, and Elizabeth Knox. The star players perform under coaches Missy Ross and Delaire Carter.
Gibson is confident that the girls will go on to win more games and have a better season that the previous years.
“We practice a lot, come together as a team, and work hard. Before every game, the team forms a circle to say the Lord’s prayer," Gibson continued to say that their two wins against Poca have been due to team work and perseverance from every member on the team.
The loss against Woodrow Wilson was a shock for the girls, but Gibson thinks they will be able to bounce back with the same vigor that they used to beat Poca.
Quick is sure that the season will be one to remember. “So far we have been doing really well. Our team communicates and that helps us play better.”
Junior Callan Banks says, “I’m looking forward to the progress we’re hoping to make this year and the memories we’ll make.”
Banks along with many other players all agree that their most difficult game opponent this year has been George Washington High school.
The girls next game of the season will be against Riverside high, at Riverside.
With all of the positivity surrounding the lady Vikings, it is clear that this season will be special for the senior players and everyone else on the team.
