The girls’ soccer team for Ripley high school has had an amazing season so far. There team has had 17 wins, 2 losses, and 3 ties. “We have won seventeen times, and each time we win we get even more excited,” said junior Grace Walsh. Soccer is a very active and tough sport, these girls have worked very hard this season. “We work really hard the whole season during practice, we like to win,” said junior Gracie Smith. There are five seniors on the team this year out of 19. Those five seniors are great leaders. Coaches Steve Gandee and Toni Carpenter and players are definitely going to miss them. “The seniors show leadership by helping the team keeping our heads up during practices and in games. We will miss the seniors a lot because they always know how to make us laugh and make us all closer,” said junior Olivia Broom. The seniors have made a lot of good memories these past four years. “My best memory would be being able to score my first goal during the championship game when I was playing FCLA in Greensboro, North Carolina,” said senior Allison Knox. “Probably when we were playing at Capital. The team picked me up and I crowd surfed because it was my birthday,” said senior Mackenzie Gillispie. The Ripley soccer team has definitely improved from last year in some areas like being able to pass better and learning how to pay more attention to the game.The team has worked very hard this year and there chemistry as a team has grew a lot. The girls all get along pretty easy so it makes them pass better on the field and makes them understand each other more. “We stay connected through social media, text, and hanging out outside of school,” said junior Olivia Gandee. There season is now over, they made it through the first sectionals game with a win over Parkersburg High. The second sectionals game they lost unfortunately against Parkersburg south. “We played a tough game, we tried and never gave up,” said Junior Sydni Cunningham.
