The OLHMS Soccer teams have had a rollercoaster of a season! The girls soccer team, coached by Ms. Amber Brodko, started the season with many challenges on the field. Between Mother Nature, injuries, and limited field time, the girls still prevailed and worked through each challenge that was put in front of them.
Zofia shared her experience on the team this year as an 8th grader saying, “I’m involved in a lot of sports at OLHMS, but this is by far the most important to me. I love playing soccer and really strived to be the best teammate. Go Lady Mustangs!”
The girls worked hard each day at practice and kept their heads held high during each game. These Lady Mustangs made it to the first round of playoffs hosted by Evergreen Park and gave it their all. While their season has ended, the girls have gained so much more than a trophy could provide.
“This year was a year of learning. I feel like the girls learned what it meant to be on a team, and although we struggled at times, we never lost sight that we needed to go out and give it our all. The girls improved each game which is all I could ask for as a coach. Our record may not be one for the record books, but as a team they fought hard together and shared many laughs that I know we won’t forget.” - Ms. Brodko, Girls Soccer Coach.
OLHMS boys soccer soared through the season with many victories. Coached by Mrs. Maggie Ksiazek, the boys soccer team hustled their way across the field and showed off their extreme soccer skills. It seems that every boy on the team has been playing since they could walk, which can be seen at each game they played this season.
Nathan shared that “...playing soccer is one of my favorite things to do. It gives me such an adrenaline rush to drive the ball down the field and make shots on goal. We worked hard as a team this year!”
