County Champions Look to Defend the Throne

1-Rapposelli-PromotionalThe Fleetwood girls’ soccer team has high hopes for the upcoming 2013/14 season. The defending county champions lost many important seniors, but the team is still very confident about talented freshmen and returning girls.

“I believe that we have a very talented team this season, and we want to try to defend our county title. A lot of our leaders graduated, but we believe that we can have another successful season,” Junior Kayla Lynn Daniels said.

The returning players seem to be very fond of the new members of the team. The freshman class has already proven to be a promising grade for future years.

“We like our talent this year, and I think we have a chance to go pretty far. The freshmen are proving themselves early in the season, and I think they can contribute to the team very well,” Sophomore Bella Abrams said.

The girls lost their former star goalkeeper, Madison Hileman , who led them to a county championship last season, but sophomore Jenna Hawkins is looking to successfully fill the role of the future Temple University women’s goalkeeper.

“We will miss Maddie’s presence on the field, but I believe that Jenna can do a great job this season.  She is a very good goalkeeper, and she’s only a sophomore,” says Daniels.

The girls’ former leading goal scorer, Bella Abrams, is back and ready to go as a sophomore. In the girls’ recent win over the Conrad Weiser Scouts, Bella scored the game winning goal in double overtime.

“I like our team this year.  I think we have a good chance at defending our title,” Senior Lauren Schlegel said.

“I think that the girls will have a very successful season and will go very far,” Junior Brendan Homan said.

Fleetwood’s reputation in soccer is very good, and the female team is looking to make sure it stays that way.
