“Olé, Olé, Olé,” girls’ soccer season is underway. Though the team did not face a drastic loss of players, they did lose key players like Carly Taphorn, division one signee, and three year varsity player Jackie McBride who signed to play at the University of Wyoming for volleyball and they do face a big change with a new head coach, Dawn Weber. This is Ms.Weber’s first season as a head coach; but, she is not new to the game she was an All-State player as a Rangeview Raider and brings in a lot of experience. The girls know this season is going to be challenging but have an optimistic outlook.

Three year varsity defender, junior Rachel Vincent said, “I think this year will be different from before; every season is different to be honest. I’m hoping we get close so that we have good chemistry and are able to perform well in all matches meaning winning league title and going far in playoffs.”

Raiders around the school are hoping for the best and know that each season has its’ own precautions that must be taken.

Soccer enthusiast Samir Mohammed said, “ I like watching the girls game they’re fun to go to. I’m hoping this team can connect because I heard there’s a couple of different (types of) players so hopefully they all connect and play well together.”

The girls have an away season opener against Palmer Ridge on March 15th at 3:30 p.m the girl’s first home game is Thursday March 17th against Highlands Ranch at 4:30 p.m.
