Girls soccer: Chasing another title


Megan Pierret, Staff Writer

Last year the Tigers girls soccer scored a huge victory over Evergreen and won the Class 4A state title last summer in Colorado Springs, the schools first ever.

The team worked together and hard all the way through June — knocking off three straight undefeated teams en route to the championship.

Although each player contributed a lot to the team, a number of talented seniors left, leaving this season up in the air. 

The Tigers are coming back this year for another season and another hope for winning state. There are now eight seniors leading the pack including Olivia Dietrich, Gianna Sandoval, Genevieve Evans, Riley Plock, Riley Bertagnolli, Jimena Martinez, Ava Kuszak and Taylor Fox.

These seniors only make up a small amount of the team though as the soccer team now has over 20 players. The organization dropped a team this year due to lack of numbers, meaning we only have one large team. Having one large team means a lot of different skill levels and a harder time blending the team, but thankfully the team still looks strong.

The team is talented as a whole, having a large team means less opportunity for a lot of playing time. So to fix this, Ben Peterson is working out a JV schedule for a few players to get extra playing time that will consist of 7-on-7 games instead of 11 players. There are not enough JV games to make a full schedule or enough players to make a full roster but this way everyone can enjoy their sport. 

The varsity team is set to win more titles starting with the first game on Tuesday at Fossil Ridge. This game will show the team where they stand and let the coaches know what the team needs. The girls are working hard and the Tiger team has set sail for another great season.
