Girls soccer kicks off practice this week and players say they have been practicing to keep up their skills.

“We have worked on footwork, running and [coach] put us in game-like situations,” senior Sydney Stupavsky said. “Out of practice I have run, practiced shooting, and playing with the team.”

Senior Emily Sohn agreed.

“We have done conditioning and worked together as a team,” Sohn said. “I have also practiced running and spent time in the weight room.”

Coach Travis Dinkheller said with all the practice the girls have done, he expects to have many challenging games that he looks forward to.

“I personally look forward to our [Western Big Six] Conference games. As always the cross town rivalry games against QND [are] also a great atmosphere,” Dinkheller said.

Senior Abbie Reis said she is also looking forward to this season.

“I am currently recovering from a hip injury so my goal for this season is to come back better than last year,” Reis said.

Reis, Sohn, and Stupavsky all say that it is harder than you think and it takes a lot of practiceto become great soccer players.
