On Aug. 22, the varsity girls soccer team faced Michigan City. The girls won with a score of 6-0.

“[This season] has definitely been a lot of work because after school we go straight to practice. We just had five games in five days so we are pretty sore. We all feel proud and we love being Indians,” Sydney Dragos (12) said.

The game started off with two goals from Adrianna Neumuski (12). This gave the girls a boost of confidence right at the beginning.

“[A highlight of the game was] when Adrianna got us started by scoring two goals right off the bat. Then we just kept them coming,” Dragos said.

The unity of the team has progressed from the start of the season, and is what’s helping the team work hard during games.

“At the beginning of the season, I felt that the unity of the team was rocky, but now as we are progressing through the season we are starting to connect and play like a unit. As the game went on today, we picked up our speed and started connecting more,” Anne Marie Hemmeriling (11) said.

The team hopes to succeed in Sectionals this season and go farther than they did last year.

“I think it’s going to be a good season. I’m really excited for it. Last year we lost in our second game, but then in previous years we’ve made it pretty far. It’s our goal to go far in Sectionals this [season],” Hemmerling said.
