The girls’ soccer team has managed to tally a record of 10-2-3 overall, while staying undefeated at home and beating tough league opponent Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy along the way.
The Wolverines started off the season going undefeated in their first 11 games and managing to grab a record of 8-0-3, one of their ties being to archrival FSHA early in the season. When asked how his team was able to accomplish such a feat, Head Coach Richard Simms had a simple answer: “Hard work and being focused.”
The team did have a disappointing 3-1 loss against Chaminade but was able to bounce back behind the strong play of forward Danielle Duhl ’12 to get impressive wins against Louisville and FSHA. Duhl has had to step up in the absence of injured forward Katie Speidel ’11.
“Danielle has been phenomenal this season but she’s been playing at this level since her freshman year so I can’t say I’m surprised,” Simms said. “Having a player that wants to win as badly as she does is infectious and she’s a huge key to any success we might have this season, particularly come playoff time.”
The team recently got its revenge against Chaminade, pummeling the Eagles at home 3-0.
The Wolverines will play their next game on Friday against Alemany.
