Talented Girls’ Varsity Soccer Team Sits at 2-2

With a roster full of big-game experience and plenty of skill, the girls’ varsity soccer team set a high bar for themselves this fall. Midway through the season, however, the team sits at .500 with a 2-2 record, and has reached a crossroads. Lying ahead are three of the team's toughest opponents, Shady Hill, Nashoba Brooks, and Meadowbrook. And although they’ll focus on one game at a time, this three-game stretch will help determine how this team will be remembered. For the team to play the way they are capable of, seventh graders Elizabeth Amaratunga, Camille DeStefano, and Kiki Friedbauer will all need to be at their best. This talented trio has helped set the tone thus far and will be counted on to make impact plays during this stretch of challenging games.
