Travis Dinkheller, girls soccer coach, is extremely excited for his team to start this year.
“I think we have a fantastic group of soccer players that will find a lot of success on the pitch,” Dinkheller said. “I am absolutely excited about the upcoming season and look forward to the soccer product we will be able to put on the field.”
Although Dinkheller is extremely excited about this season, there are some challenges the girls soccer team are facing.
“We play a very tough schedule every year, which challenges and prepares us for one of the toughest Regionals in Illinois,” Dinkheller said.
While Dinkheller said he thinks there are big challenges for this season, Schay Mulherin, senior, thinks this season won’t change much from last.
“We lost Alex Peters, and she was a good player, but we have underclassmen to fill her shoes,” Mulherin said. “We didn’t lose many seniors so not much is different.”
On the other hand, Samantha Ward, senior, thinks this season will be different because of the underclassmen.
“We have a lot more seniors so they will be good leaders. We lost only two seniors from last season, and they were pretty good, but we have underclassmen to fill those spots,” Ward said.
Mulherin and Ward are both anticipating games against Quincy Notre Dame and Edwardsville games as well as Regionals.
