Girls’ Soccer

This year’s girls’ soccer is very competitive. Everyone is doing good and playing their soccer. This year, people were playing soccer very well and really hit the field. Unlike boys’ soccer, there weren’t as many cuts in girls’ soccer. Everyone was very good and there are high hopes for the upcoming season.

Freshman Victoria Zamloot was very happy when she made the team. “Although the competition was boiling, I made it!” says Zamloot when she was asked about what she thought about the tryouts. She made the frosh-soph team this year and as a freshman with high hopes, is really looking forward to her soccer years as a San Mateo Bearcat.

There were a vast amount of girls trying out this year.  Most people were very confident about making the team. Even with the tough competition, many people including Alex Doi, a sophomore, were so confident about their skills that they thought making the varsity team would be no sweat.

“I [will] probably make the varsity team,” says Doi when asked about how she thought about tryouts. No matter what team she makes, she will be a great attribute to the team.

On the varsity side, practically no one was cut. In general, the only people that tried out were already on a team last year. Like other sports in San Mateo, the varsity spots are reserved, while the frosh-soph teams have to fight for their places on the team.

Varsity player and freshman Aslinn Oka says, “Making varsity was easy; even though I would have been satisfied with frosh-soph, starting at varsity and getting experience isn’t a bad thing.”

Last year the varsity team was amazing. It was an amazing season; another one like that could put us on the fast track to fame. The proud San Mateo Bearcats of girls’ soccer have a lot to live up to. It’s massive, but it’s not something we can’t accomplish again this year.

Senior Jesse Wong, an experienced senior says, “Soccer has always been one of our best sports. It definitely won’t be a disappointment this year. With all the new people coming in I doubt we are going to have a tough season,” explains Jesse. “It’s just another thing we have to shoot for and try our best.”
