After missing out on CCS last year, the girls’ varsity soccer team is gearing up for a fresh start.
Tryouts took place over the weeks of Oct. 30 and Nov. 6 under the watchful eye of head coach Philip DeRosa, who explained he uses tryouts to identify who fulfills the expectations of varsity soccer. Teams have been announced, with 18 girls on the varsity team. Of them, there are six sophomores, four juniors and eight seniors.
“This year, I’m excited about playing with my team, bonding with them and winning,” sophomore Lillian Potter explained.
“This season I’m really looking forward to hopefully building off our team from last year,” junior Allison Bottarini said. “As a team, I think our goal should be to communicate and learn how to work better together.”
The girls’ first scrimmage is on Nov. 21 against San Mateo High School, followed by a game against Valley Christian on Nov. 28.
