CPHS girls soccer heads into their sixth game of the season against Rouse on Tuesday, Feb. 25. The girls have set the goal of revisiting the state game and bringing back the win.

So far in this season, they won 3-0 against Rouse, 2-0 against Marble Falls, 4-1 against Leander and 2-1 against Vista Ridge. They lost 2-1 to Vandegrift. According to junior Claire Bohrer, this is a great start.

“We have won many of our district games, and the team is really coming together,” Bohrer said.

This year’s team consists of four seniors, ten juniors, six sophomores and two freshmen. Although a younger team may be seen as a disadvantage, Bohrer doesn’t plan on letting it stop them from accomplishing their goals.

“This year we are much younger of a team, but we have high hopes to be as successful as last year’s team,” Bohrer said.

Senior Kat Hill explained how another difference this season may affect the team, as they started the season with a new coach.

“Communication is huge as we are adapting to our new coach and her coaching style,” Hill said. “She is also adapting to being our coach.”

Hill explained that the new composition of the team has caused it to take time to gain the chemistry they need to succeed as a whole.

“We lost so many seniors last year that varsity is practically an entirely new team,” Hill said. “We have had to adjust a lot especially with positioning. It has taken us a while to get used to playing with each other.”

Although the girls recognize their challenges this year, they are keeping their goal of competing at the state game this season.
