Best Season for the Lady Soccer Tigers
Setting up for future lady Tigers
The Massillon girls soccer team reached a milestone. Their record this year was 4-7-2. The new record is a drastic difference from last year’s 1-13. The girls worked hard to accomplish these wins and have improved their skills to have a better team to pass on to the next season’s players.
“It was very challenging but worth it in the end.”- Junior Captain Molly Gatsios.
The Lady Tigers were at a disadvantage competing against much better teams. As a new team, over half of the girls started learning the basics of soccer this year. Still, they were very successful. Many of the players went from learning to pass to scoring winning goals.
Two games, in particular, were huge wins for the Lady Tigers. Both Springfield (8-0) and Shaw (7-1) showed that the team can come together and lay serious cleat marks. Rachel Evanoff, Kenndi Fisk, Riley Henndricks, and Kaitlyn Weatherholt scored goals this season with saves in goal from Tessa Brooks, Zora Ladd, and Kaitlyn Weatherholt.
“I think this has been the best season in 3 or 4 years. Honestly, I think you guys did really well this season, and you guys should be proud.” – Boys Senior Captain Jonathan Gutierrez.
“Hard work and perseverance are two words that come to mind to describe this season. Our girls put forth so much effort, and it showed as their skills grew! I’m so excited to see what the future holds for Massillon soccer.”- Head Coach Jenny Fromholtz.
” ‘Success is a science if u have the conditions you get the result’ (Oscar Wild) We met some of our conditions, and so we improved some of our results.” – Assistance Coach Tanna Sebrell.
The coaches were always standing on the sidelines motivating the team. They were played a big part in the wins by cheering on and teaching players. As Coach Sebrell would tell the girls “Get your poop in a group!”. They won and lost together. In the end, any spectator could tell these girls were having. The memories made and the work these girls put in will be carried on for many seasons to come.
