With their motto for the year, #ourtime, in mind, the varsity soccer team headed to Marine Park in Santa Monica to play Pacifica Christian High School on Tuesday, Dec. 11. The team won the game with a final score of 3-0.

Sophomore Sydney Banks has been on the upper school varsity team since ninth grade, and explained that Pacifica Christian High School is the team’s ‘[rival.]’

“They’re a really strong team and they’re going to come out wanting revenge, so we just have to be really prepared for that,” Banks said before the game. “It’s our first league game of the season, so there is a lot of exciting stuff going on. I think it’s going to be a really good game.”

The team consists of 25 players in grades nine through 12, with many incoming freshmen. Freshman Ali Aragon said that the new members are gelling well with the rest of the team.

“There’s a lot of new freshmen coming in; we’re still trying to find chemistry as a team,” Aragon said. “It’s going really well, and we’re progressing a lot,”

Sophomore Nicole Farmer said she feels that the team has good chemistry considering the new team members.

“I feel like we’re all super cohesive, and we all work together,” Farmer said. “We have a really good, tight-knit bond, even though we haven’t been playing with each other for really long.”

The team has played three games prior to this one, but those games were against teams that are not part of their league.

“I’m looking forward to bonding with a lot of the of the older girls,” Aragon said, “and making connections.”

Sophomore Stella Chuck said the game and the win helped boost ‘morale.’

“The fact that we won, and that we… won cohesively… shows a lot about how the season is going to go,” Chuck said.
