With a past season of two wins and 13 loses, the Crete Girl’s soccer team is starting a new season in hope for a better outcome than last year. To prevent what happened last year, the coaches gave the girls many ways to stay in shape and continue to improve. During the off season, the girls were offered fall ball along with soccer conditioning during pre-season. With an average of 20 girls showing up for each training session, coaches were satisfied with the number that came out.

The season began on February 29, with a big number of girls arriving. As a whole, the team has lost and gained members with a number now of 40 girls officially on the team. The first week of training was a testing period to see who would stay on the team, followed by evaluations the next week. “I was very surprised that they choose me for varsity,” Freshmen Brynnet Estrada-Miranda said. This year was a great year for freshmen girls coming out and bringing their talent to the field. ⅓ of the varsity team are freshmen.

“Training up to the first game was a lot of running and learning your position,” Senior Lupita Mora said. From scrimmages to running suicides back forth, Crete plans to beat their opponents with their physical condition aside from their foot skills. With a mentally of changing people’s minds about them, Crete has trained harder than previous years.

“I’m tired of people thinking we aren’t good. We want to change their minds about us,” junior Perla Padilla said. The team had three back to back games starting with playing against Nebraska City and losing 1-0 with a goal in the first half. After a hard and trying game, the girls played against Columbus High the next day and lost  8-0. This was followed by playing against Lakeview and gaining another loss of 7-0.

“It was a very hard game to watch,” Padilla said. After the tough weekend, the team continued to move on and began a new week of preparation for their game against Beatrice.

“I hope for a better outcome, I know what these girls are capable of,” Head Coach Brent Cain said. With hopes of a good result, the team continues their training. As a whole, they are driven to show people that they have much more potential than what has been seen.
