JV Girls’ Soccer Advances Toward Newest Almont League Season

Staff Writer

Finishing the preseason with a 2-4 record, the JV girls’ soccer team continues their already ongoing season with a current 2-1-3 record, after winning their game against San Gabriel Matadors on Jan. 23 with a score of 8-0 and the game against the Mark Keppel Aztecs with a 5-0 victory on Jan. 27.

The girls will seek to improve from last year’s 8-2 season record this week against the Montebello Oilers away at Montebello High School.

Working out from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. every day, the girls focus on plays, speed, blocking, aiming, endurance and many different tactics to better control the ball. The team excels during practices; however, though they feel that they made progress on their communication, some agree that it is something that still needs improvement.

The team continues to constantly work hard with the guidance of JV Coach Nabor Solis in the hopes of finishing their season on an excellent note.

“I think this year will end really great because at the end even though we know we are not the best, we made it our full effort to succeed,” defense sophomore captain Blanca Mendez said.
