After an impressive win at state last year, the varsity girls soccer team is returning for another season. The first game of the season is currently scheduled for Saturday, April 1 against Kenosha Bradford at the Mary D. Bradford Stadium.

The team’s past success has set a high bar for the team this year.

“Since our season last year was so successful, our work ethic and strategies have completely changed. We will definitely train at the same level as before which will help us have a strong return to the pitch,” Megan Hagerty, junior, said. 

This year, the team is mainly focusing on possession and passing patterns in hopes of being able to tire out the competition and score some goals.

“Our goal is to win conference for our third year in a row and to do well during playoffs.  If we can do this we will have a very strong rebuilding year,” Hagerty said.

The team lost thirteen seniors last year, leaving plenty of room for fresh faces on the field. One of new players is Katie Wegmann, senior, who has committed to Southeast Missouri State University to play Division 1 soccer next year.

“Soccer is a sport that I love so much and have put almost my entire life into. I wanted to see if I could take it to the next level to challenge myself and continue doing what I love [in college],” Wegmann said.

Also playing in college next year is Jenna Dorf, senior, who has committed to the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater. Dorf has been a part of the Homestead soccer program all four years and has seen an increase in both the intensity level and the desire to win and be fit.

“It has been my dream to play in college my whole life. Soccer has really been a huge part of me growing up and I couldn’t imagine myself not continuing it further,” Dorf said.
