The Legacy Girls Varsity Soccer Team recently wrapped their winter season. It was a season full of growth. New Coach Caroline Williams spent a lot of time with team increasing their soccer IQ and learning more about the game as a whole. This year’s team was a very young team, so it was important that they learn all the details correctly before moving onto another skill. The players always presented with a great mindset, work ethic, and always enjoyed spending time together.
Practice time was not just a time to develop soccer skills but also time to spend together and to continue to develop themselves into being more Christ-like. The girls realized that this is something they will need to continue to be cognizant of and continue to pursue actively throughout their lives.
The team focused on being thankful that He gave them the ability to play soccer, and that they should continue to play to the best of their ability, all for the glory of God. They also realized that soccer is just a game and that their identity does not depend upon the team’s performance.
My favorite memory this season was when we beat Tyler Grace Community, who were last years state champions, or playing Irving Highlands and winning our first game. Next season I’m looking forward to making playoffs again and growing close with my new teammates. This season was so much fun and I can’t wait to see how the soccer program improves in the future.
The highlight win for the season was beating reigning state champions, Grace Community School, with a score of 4-3. This was a BIG game for girls soccer. The girls played incredibly, showing the grit and determination of the team as a whole.
With such a young team this year, there will be quite a few returning players next spring. They plan to use the offseason to continue to improve, to gain strength, and to learn how to anticipate what will come next in the soccer game. The biggest challenge facing the team is that they are in a really good district, so they will continue to have to fight for a playoff spot, but they have the full faith of their coach as she knows it is entirely possible with their team.
Congrats on a great season, Lady Eagles!
I am so incredibly proud of the girls on the LCA soccer team. They continually did everything I asked of them. The team blew away any expectations that I had set for them before the season began. While the girls spent a lot of time playing soccer, we spent even more time laughing. These girls were truly a blessing this season & we are already looking forward to improving even more for next season.
