This season has been awesome for us as coaches. We have a really young team and showed some trememdous growth throughout the last few months. We came together and end of august and never stopped getting better which shows what type of characters we have on this team. We had a goal in mind to make nationals and we did it. The exciting thing to me as a coach is the fact that we are young and gained some valuable experience this year. This off season this coaching staff are dedicated to getting better as a team and hope to come back next fall as contenders for everything. It has been a joy to coach such wonderful women and I am blessed to be the coach of this team!

PLAYER’S VIEW: Seniors who played in their last game as a Pilot!

Doro Schulz: Being able to play soccer at nationals is always a huge treat to end the season with. It’s pretty much the icing on the cake which makes everything so worthwhile. Nationals is what we work towards all season long and going back to South Carolina for a final championship tournament is worth the hard work. Playing my final game with the team was such a bittersweet moment. Running alongside the girls, I didn’t really let myself think about the fact that I won’t be on the field with them next year. It feels so surreal that the season is done and that it was my last season as a pilot. It’s been fantastic being able to walk alongside the girls and see how much they have grown over the past few months and years. I am grateful for the many experiences God has given me by being a part of this team.

Raychel Algera: It was fun going out to Nationals one last time with the team. We got to hangout downtown and also volunteer with the other teams which was a cool experience. We had a tough battle against Grace Baptist and unfortunately did not get the results we were hoping for. We won against Randall which was a nice way to finish the season. The girls on the team are a lot of fun, and I am excited to see how far they will get in nationals next year. It has been a great three years as a pilot and I am very thankful for all the girls and coaches I have gotten to play with.
