The Mustangs had a mission to come out and improve from last season. The girls were 11-9-2 in the season and third in the DuPage Valley Conference. With a younger team this year, it was a learning experience to incorporate what every player can bring to the table. Throughout their season, they consistently focused on communicating to the center midfielders.
In the postseason, their comeback win from the Regional Championship against Lockport summed up the dedication all season. Looking to move forward in the Sectional Semifinal, they fell short to Naperville North through a slick pass. “We just need to continue to get our shots off in front of the net, and stay organized defensively for next season,” junior Nikki Coryell said. In spite of their early conclusion in Sectionals, the team created a close bond this year. “One (memorable) thing that comes to mind is our team bonding retreat in the woods called Lorado Taft. We had a lot of fun there this year. It was really cool to get to know each other and have fun off the field there,” Coryell said.
