For the first time in six years, varsity soccer did not make it to state.

With losses felt throughout the whole team from Lake Washington (0-1), Ingraham (0-2), West Seattle (1-3), and Eastside Catholic (2-3),  they hope to come back better than ever next year. As this season settled down, they tried their best and they’re thankful for this season.

Although they didn’t make it to state, they’re thankful for this season. Senior Cameron Griffin,outside midfielder, is thankful for this season because she feels like the team had a very strong bond this season.

“The team was super close this year, so creating the sisterhood we did was a big high,” said Griffin, “My favorite memory of this season is being with my best friends everyday and becoming such a bonded team”.

One of the hardest losses for the team this season, was their loss against Eastside Catholic in the first Metro League game. After beating the crusaders earlier in the season Helena Dougherty, center back, knows her team could’ve played better.

“We had beaten them before, and lost 2-3,” said Dougherty, “I feel like we could have stopped all three of their goals because they scored off of a penalty kick, free kick, and corner kick”.

The team wants to move past their lows of this season and focus on the highs. Earlier this season, the girls beat Lakeside, which they were ecstatic about because Lakeside has a very good team.

“We knew it would be a tough match, but worked hard for all 80 minutes and took the win,” said Daugherty.

With high hopes for next season, the team hopes to improve and get better next year. Amelia Tiesi, center midfielder, wants to see the team improve not only on the field, but also off.

“We could’ve been more attentive at practice,” said Tiesi, “We didn’t prepare very well before games, and we could’ve improved by being game ready,”.

Although the season is over, the team plans on staying close and improving their skills in the off season to be a great team once again.
