Springing into Soccer Season

Springing+into+Soccer+Season

With the close end of Autumn, and the start of Winter, new sports seasons are beginning, and new sports mean it’s time for soccer to shine. 

With the girls’ season opener around the corner, the girls have been getting back into their old routines and traditions. 

‘’After every practice and game we all chant “1, 2, 3, Titans!!!” Girls JV Soccer player, sophomore Aya Maali exclaimed.

As these girls hope to make it to districts this year, they have been reflecting on what they can do to make this season better than the last. Because what’s a new season without improvement?

‘’I hope that I make friendships that will last, learn a lot for the game and in life, better my own ability within the game, and most importantly, have fun while doing it because at the end of the day, win or lose, I love my team.’’ sophomore Dunia Abu Soud said. 

The reflection also comes with some reminiscing, as seniors prepare to play their last season for Olympia and start taking the next steps in life after graduation. 

‘’It’s really exciting but it’s also really sad. High school soccer made me fall back in love with soccer after playing club soccer for so long. I made varsity my freshman year and it’s always been really important to me and I’m really gonna miss my teammates.’’ senior J’nih James said

As much work these girls put in, on and off the field, they couldn’t do it without their coaches. JV player Dunia Abu Soud gives an insight into what it is like to have Jared Widerman as a coach. 

‘’Of course, he coaches to help our chances of winning and to improve our ability to play, but he really focuses on our understanding of the game and not just kicking a ball across a field. He really tries to make sure that we all know where we should be and when while painting out a picture for us, which makes his coaching super effective. We aren’t just robots that are produced to win, we are girls that truly have a love for a sport and want to improve’’ Sophomore Dunia Abu Soud said. 

As some play the field for the first time, and some for the last, these girls are ready to rock the soccer field this season. Even in the Florida cold, or sometimes in the unexpected rain. The soccer team is ready to show the world what it really means to be a Titan.
