With a strong rebuilding season last year, Homestead’s girl’s soccer team is ready to return and take the turf by storm. The girls first season game is on March 27 against Kettle Moraine at Kettle Moraine High School.

With big season goals in mind, these girls are getting to work in their pre-season camp.

“I have played soccer for the last nine years. It has become an enormous part of my life and being a senior on this team is super cool. It would be an amazing feeling to place top three in our conference this season. We all really hope for a good run in playoffs as well. Winning state championships two years ago was definitely one of the coolest moments for me,” Megan Hagerty, a senior captain said.

Hagerty isn’t the only one with this championship goal in mind. Ms. Kelly Denk, an assistant coach for the past three years, wants to win another also. “My goal for this season is ultimately the same as every team, to show up and win the state championship,” Denk said.

“Last year we lost some very strong seniors. Not only did we lose their personality, heart, and soul, we lost the talent that these girls brought,” Denk said. Mr. Tony Navarre, assistant coach for the last nine years, believes this is an opportunity for some. “This loss really gives other younger girls the chance to step up and show their leadership and skills,” he said.

With tryouts being the week before spring break, both assistant coaches are very eager. “There are a lot of new freshmen this year. It will be interesting to see how everything goes. I am worried about the shape the returning girls are in,” Navarre said.

“One piece of advice I have for new players is that age doesn’t matter. Your age doesn’t affect your ability to lead the team on and off the field. Everyone can be a leader,” Hagrety said.
