Throughout the years, the varsity girls’ soccer team has had its fair-share of struggles. This previous season was a hit, with a numerous amount of seniors taking the team to a second place win during state.

However, this season has a large group of younger players. This may have an effect on their team because of their inexperience when it comes to being on a varsity team.

When asked about the team’s weaknesses, coach Roberts stated, “They haven’t played a lot together and not many players have varsity experience.”

Junior varsity player, Brenna Alderson, began playing for Perry during her freshman year. So far this season she has a total of 7 goals, 1 per game.

“My teammates are always encouraging and pushing each other to be better,” stated Alderson. “Expectations for the new season would be to play our best and hopefully win state.”

When asked about what she thinks her team excels at, Alderson stated, “I think we all work really well together and have fun while working hard.” She also mentioned that the team needs to “work on scoring more consistently.”

This season’s team features some new and younger players. Mikella Reed, a sophomore on varsity, has a total of 3 goals, 5 assists, and 4 goals per game so far.

Other sophomore players include Courtney Fernau, with 1 goal and 3 assists, and Joey Lujan, with 1 goal and 4 assists.

The varsity team consists of mostly seniors and juniors, but features some sophomores. These younger and less experienced players may seem concerning, however, they could end up benefiting the team and become amazing assets for this new season.

“Last year’s team was unbelievable, but that was last year,” stated Coach Roberts. “This year’s team has an opportunity to leave their mark on Perry soccer. They control their own destiny.”
