The South Jefferson girls’ soccer team is off to a 4-2 overall start, 3-2 in league play.
Much is expected of the Lady Spartans in the Frontier League B Division this season.
South Jefferson is hoping to stop Lowville’s seven-year reign as league champions.
“We have eight starters back,” coach Terry Burgess said. “We have our three leading scorers back. We have one of our goalkeepers back, one is injured. We have a fairly good amount of players back. We have four or five new girls up from JV but we’ve got a squad of 16.”
“A lot of hard work,” player Jackie Piddock said. “We’ve got a lot of young girls and leadership from the upperclassmen, so we’ve been pushing each other and working very hard.”
“Our core group of seniors are doing really well, working hard this year,” Macy Shultz said. “And the younger ones coming up are hard workers, so together we have good chemistry and work really well together.”
“A lot of us are very hard working and a lot of the girls have stepped up this year, considering we have such a young team,” Alayna Bush said, but there’s been a lot of hard work and we all work together very well so that’s been nice.”
