San Mateo Soccer Teams Kick Off the Season

Kicking off the winter sports season is the girls and boys soccer teams. Both genders playing with a frosh-soph and varsity teams, gear up for a long season ahead, striving to win and have fun, while representing their school.

 

Practicing everyday you would think that the teams would be growing strong, Tyler Mucci, senior and player on boy’s varsity soccer, agrees “Our team is strong with the ball and we have many players that can score. I expect our team to have another dominant season and finish somewhere in the top. I also expect our team to go far in CCS.”

Player’s goals for the upcoming season include, working hard, improving their skills, and making it to CCS and no matter how good a team may be there are always room for improvements. Mieke Voges, junior and player for girl’s varsity soccer, says, “I don’t think we have any really strong strikers this year, so we definitely have room for improvement.” The teams are sure to improve during their pre-season games, as they prepare for the real season.

 

This year the boy’s varsity team consists of mostly upperclassmen, while on the other hand the girl’s varsity team is mostly underclassman. “Our team is practically all underclassmen! I would have to say this is an advantage for us though, many teams underestimate our underclassmen who can easily outplay their upperclassmen.” says, Hayley Walker, senior and player for girl’s varsity, who stays positive about her young team.

 

All players are quick to agree that the reason, each of their teams is a team, is because of their chemistry and the fact that they all get along well with each other. Other factors also, for example, positivity on the field and at practice and team bonding, help bring the players together.
