What to expect from Orcutt Academy girls soccer


There is lots of excitement towards the 2019-2020 Orcutt Academy girls soccer season with an impressive 11 four-year varsity seniors attempting to leave their own lasting mark on the school during their final season.


There are some mixed feelings from senior varsity girls soccer athletes for the upcoming season. “It’s bittersweet knowing it’s my last year on this team, the girls are like sisters to me,” says varsity senior, Marianna Chavez when asked to speak her emotions about playing her last year. Chavez, being a captain and past MVP gives her thanks to her coach Brian who has taught her so much through her four years on varsity and believed in her to always improve. “He was a crucial part of my growth not only as a soccer player, but as an individual in life.”

With the new season beginning, tryouts are also an event to be viewed on. Tryouts are starting in November and there is nothing but excitement from the team and coaches. Four-year varsity  senior, Taylor Martinez shares advice for incoming freshmen interested in trying out this year, “don’t be intimidated by anyone else and just play to your potential; leave it all out there on the field.” 

Anyone interested in participating in girls soccer this year talk to coach Speer and attend practices on Mondays from 5-7 at Rice Ranch Field.
