The sun is finally shining and CCS women’s soccer is back in full swing. Unlike winter sports, soccer is an outdoor sport allowing leniency with COVID restrictions. So, depending on specific field rules, fans will be allowed. 

Although last season was curtailed due to COVID, they managed to play five games and ended 3-2. In their previous season, the team was 8-7-1 and placed seventh in their conference.

“We were all packing for our beach trip the night we found out that we couldn’t go and then further finding out we wouldn’t even have a season anymore. I was really sad and hated not being able to play anymore since it was my first season and we were just getting in the groove of it all,” said Sophomore Lily Moss

The girls were disappointed with their abbreviated season, but are excited to get back on the field for a regular season.

“I am really looking forward to playing more games this season with the team and getting to know all of the girls better,” said senior Ella Boyce.

Coronavirus has caused some restrictions for the season, but overall it seems like the girls will be able to play a regular season with COVID cases declining. Their first game was against Covenant Day, who is currently first in their conference, on February 23rd. 

“I love being a part of the team because soccer allows us to all come together without caring about age differences. It allows me to get to know others and learn from them. The environment that the coaches and my teammates have created helps me grow as a person and in my faith,” said senior Ella Boyce.
