Girls’ JV Soccer On the Way Up

In just their second game of the season, the girls’ JV soccer team showed marked improvement from their opener two weeks ago. Squaring off against Brimmer & May on the road, the Blue & Gold trailed 3-2 late in the second frame before eventually falling 5-2. Despite the result, head coach Alex Tzelnic was encouraged by the way his team competed. Of note was the play of Audrey Wu and Ana McEleney. Wu was a standout on the defensive line and was directly responsible for turning away multiple scoring chances throughout the game. McEleney excelled on the other end of the field by applying constant offensive pressure and advancing the ball up the field. In addition, classmates Lucy Zhang and Olive Kiraly showed their versatility by making impact plays from new positions on the field. The team will look to continue their upward trajectory next week at Cambridge Friends.
