Soccer - Girls' Varsity

The girls’ varsity soccer team had a challenging yet very growth-oriented season. Having graduated five seniors last year, the team relied heavily on the returning players, and a few new additions, to fill some big shoes. After getting off to a rough start the Knights worked tirelessly to improve each day and gain confidence during matches. Despite a string of early losses, the team pulled together and put forth some great performances against quality teams. Most notable were the convincing wins they had over Concord Academy and St. George’s School, as well as the hard fought ties the team earned against Wilbraham and Monson and Williston Northampton. These games demonstrated that the team had real heart, but they just couldn’t always put it all together. In the end the Knights finished with a worse record than they would have hoped, but they remain optimistic as they look to the future. The team looks forward to a productive off season as they hope to further develop the program and set out on a quest to get back to the NEPSAC tournament.
