Girls soccer team defeated by Olathe North

Team loses 3-2 at their home-opener

The girls soccer team fell to Olathe North High School 3-2 at their home-opener on Tuesday, April 4.

Though Olathe scored 11 minutes into the first period, leading 1-0, senior forward Michaela Remijio scored for the Jaguars just three minutes later. Olathe scored once again 32 minutes into the period on a corner kick, and Remijio scored her second goal of the night with two minutes left in the half to tie the game. During the second period, Olathe took the lead 28 minutes in, and the Jaguars could not make a comeback.

Despite the team’s loss, sophomore right midfielder Kaylee Chapman believes the team did well overall.

“I feel like we were pretty slow getting to some balls, but it’s our first game so I think we did pretty good,” Chapman said.

Freshman center midfielder Haley Freeman said the team’s drive to win motivated team members to continue playing hard.

“When we were down, that’s what kept me motivated,” Freeman said. “We just kept trying to score.”

According to Chapman, players of the team hope to improve throughout the season.

“[Our goals are] to win, score, work as a team, and get better,” Chapman said.

The team will play its next game on Thursday, April 3 at home against Shawnee Mission North.
