Girls soccer is optimistic and ready for league competition

LO varsity girls soccer is entering their fifth week of competition with six games under their belt. The team started with a pair of close, 1-2 losses to Grant and Sunset, but came back with a huge 7-1 win at home versus Liberty High School.

The team is focused on improving their play through the rest of the year. “I know our team can compete with the best teams in the state when we work together and are playing to our full potential. Our main goal this season is to get better and better with each practice and with each game,” said Taylor Jones, one of the team’s five seniors. 

LO’s first seven games are against non-league schools, giving the players an opportunity to prepare for their TRL opponents. They will have their first league game on Oct. 8 versus Oregon City High School. 

Jones is optimistic for the remainder of the season. “Each game, our group plays more and more like a team which is amazing to see. Our progress from the end of last season to now is amazing and I’m excited to see how far we can make it,” she said.
