JV girls’ soccer ends season undefeated

The girls’ junior varsity soccer team ended its season 10-0-1 and Coach Michael Lord said he proud of the team’s progress.

“I was sad that the season ended. I was enjoying my time coaching the girls,” Lord said. “We had some obstacles as a team to overcome but the effort the group put into the training and the games were outstanding. Now if they can only continue to put that level of effort in until I see them again, I would be happy.”

Freshman Sela Horgan said she is happy with the results of the season.

“I’m really proud of the way that the season ended,” Horgan said. “It was really great to be undefeated. I think everybody improved so much and made a bunch of progress and I had a great time playing this season.”

Freshman Violet Castillo also said she really enjoyed the season. 

“We remained undefeated the entire season,” Castillo said. “Beating Edgewood made the season for me. Although we were undefeated, we tied our game against Melbourne. As long as nobody beat us, I was happy.”

Eighth-grader Anita M. said she will continue playing outside of school.

“I’m going to miss playing West Shore soccer until next season, but now I’m focusing on club,” she said. 

Castillo moved up to the varsity team after the JV season ended and is also playing club.

“I was super-excited but also really nervous,” Castillo said. “It all ended up fine because now I’m getting even better at playing with the older girls. It has been such an amazing experience to play for the school.”
