After what the players say was a rough season, the girls soccer team holds a fair record of 5-10-1.

Senior Sadie Sheller said that while the record may not reflect it, she feels that the team worked well with each other.

For us, it was just kind of frustrating because I feel like on a whole, we weren’t bad as a team,” Sheller said. “We just can’t score, or we make a lot of little mistakes.”

Head coach of three years Kent Nelke said that the team performed better than previous years.

In general, the season has gone well. We have improved tremendously since the beginning of the season,” Nelke said.

The team’s wins this year help prove their improvement. The 3-2 win against Woodinville, 2-1 win against Bothell and the 3-0 shutout against North Creek all weigh equally in his mind, Nelke said.
Though Nelke said that the team has improved, he said that he hopes that they will be able to improve on their consistency and overall ability  through an offseason weight program.

“While I can’t do anything about the physical height,” Nelke said, “I can help improve size through strength.”
