The varsity girls’ soccer team ended the season as regional champions.

The girls’ varsity soccer team competed against Naperville North in the Sectional Finals at Lockport High School on Friday night. Although the girls lost 0-1 to the Huskies at the end of the night, they put up a strong fight throughout the entire match and ended the season as regional champions.

“We’ve been able to use those [losses] to help us get better so we’re prepared for the end of the season. I really enjoy watching them play towards the end of the season when they’ve shown a lot of progress,” coach Chris Whaley said.

Throughout the three games the girls’ participated in during Sectionals, the team held up a remarkable effort and much intensity. Along with the effort and intensity, the girls showed outstanding teamwork to show the bond they’ve had over the season.

“To watch [the girls] shine and persevere through so many difficult situations is pretty amazing,” coach Josh Robinson said.

The girls received tremendous support and positive energy from their coaches and teammates on the sidelines throughout the entirety of the season. With much success this season and making it to the third round of the sectionals tournament, the girls kept that support and positivity well-known throughout the overall season.

“We started to play more for each other than [play] for ourselves. Of course every win we had was a highlight, but we pride ourselves on the amount of heart we have for the experience,” sophomore Kiley Mckee said.
