Congratulations to our Women’s Varsity soccer team.  The team enjoyed a run 4 deep in the NCHSSA playoffs to the round of 8.  The team, led by five seniors, made Wakefield history this year.  Seniors reflect on favorite moments this season and offer advice for next year’s Lady Wolverines.

 

Rachel Crum

Q:  What was your favorite moment this season?

A:  When we won second round and we went to third round we were like ‘wow! we finally made it past second round!’  For two years in a row we hadn’t gotten past second round and in the third round we were playing the number one team and they were seeded number one in the state. We beat them and we were like ‘wow!  we’re going to the fourth round!’

Q:  What advice do you have for next year’s team?

A:  I would say we play together when we work together.  When we don’t think about how talented we are we just focused on one goal to succeed.  That’s what happened this year.

 

Samantha Crum

Q:  What was your favorite moment this season?

A:  Beating Heritage.  We went to PKs and it was very exciting and very tense.

Q:  What advice do you have for next year’s team?

A:  They just need to come together and focus on their strengths, working together as a team.

 

 Rachel Hennenkamp

Q:  What was your favorite moment this season?

A:  We played against Heritage in the tournament, and we went from overtime to golden goal to PKs and still won the game.  It wasn’t that we played and beat Heritage it was the fact that we all did it for each other.

Q:  What advice do you have for next year’s team?

A:  Fight for each other and do it for the W.  Work as a team.

 

Ashley Skinner

Q:  What was your favorite moment this season?

A:  Beating Heritage for the Conference Championship.

Q:  What advice do you have for next year’s team?

A:  I would try to work together and make sure they all want to win and keep playing.

 

 Caroline Wright

Q:  What was your favorite moment this season?

A:  My favorite moment this season was playing in the Conference tournament and winning in the PKs.

Q:  What advice do you have for next year’s team?

A:  Always push each other to do better.  Set goals and work together to reach them and have fun while you’re doing it.
