    Girl's Soccer

    You’ve Got Assist-er in Me

    Teamwork – the foundation of any sport, it finds particular importance on the soccer field. Games can be determined by the ability of each player to cooperate and work together towards a common goal – the one on the other side of the field, that is!

    An assist is defined as a player that passes the ball to another player, who in turn scores a goal for the team. A sister, on the other hand, is someone you joke with, tease, and act silly around. And both have contributed to the success of the Girls Varsity Soccer team.
    After hours of practice, nerve-wracking final minutes of an important game, and a shared sense of commitment to the sport, the hard-working ladies of the varsity soccer team have developed into more than a team. They’ve become a family.

    The team's cooperation and compatibility enables them to help each other on the field. “[We] learn each other's strengths and weaknesses, so that we could all work to make each other look good and work well,” says senior Alex Dreves.

    Along with good teamwork, an exceptional team is marked by a positive attitude and fierce determination. With their optimism, unity, and sheer talent, the Apaches were victorious in five of their games in January, but came out short in the other four. But these losses have not kept them down. Rather, the girls are using them as motivation to continue training hard.

    "We did lose but we all kept fighting until the end," comments junior Pamela Joseph, reflecting the girls' unrelentless efforts even in loss.

    “Whether we win or lose, we learn something new, something we need to work on as a team," adds freshman Shelby Dreves.
    In a game against Hoover High School on January 22nd Jan. 22 , the team showed their dominance, sweeping the game 8-1. They also crushed John Muir High School 8-0 on Jan. 13. Other highlights of their season include Aliso Niguel and the Mater Dei Soccer Invitational.

    According to Coach Paul Myles, “Mater Dei is the Megan Fox of girl’s soccer so tying them is quite an accomplishment and a testimony of this year's soccer team."

    Even heavy rain cannot dampen the girls' spirits; neither can it curb their natural competitive edge. Rather, they make the best of their situation,whether it be having fun in a light drizzle, or pushing their tired bodies to perform in the pouring rain. Each time, they have proved themselves not only physically, but mentally strong. Unfortunately, unfavorable weather conditions have plagued the team for many of their recent games.

    On Feb. 5th,the girls played against Burroughs High School, victorious with a final score of 2 to 1. Their season is drawing to a close, but none of them are looking to the end just yet.

    By beating out Glendale on Feb. 9th, the girls took one step closer to their ultimate goal--to advance to a CIF (California Interscholastic Federation) competition. Going into the game against Crescenta Valley that took place on Feb. 11th, the girls were ready to defend their spot in CIF. In the end, the rival Falcons were no match against the talented--and very determined--Apaches, despite the fact that they have often edged the girls by a few points in previous matches.

    Their victorious streak is continuing straight into the first round of CIF,beating Palmdale 2-0 on Feb.17. It seems like their positive attitudes and incredible dedication have, and will continue to, carry them far.

    “Even though it has been tough, I never lose faith in my team and what they are capable of,” adds captain Sydney Dreves.

    And with that,their season has come to a close. However, their positive attitudes and incredible dedication have, and will continue to, carry them far.
