After Shah’s first goal of the season, she said she ”felt a boost of energy and morale.” 

Athlete “Cassidy Nichols played a great ball to run onto,” Shah said. For being a new team at a brand new high school, Shah said, ”I think we are doing well as we are trying to put together different styles of play to see what works for us.” Shah also thinks ”One thing we can work on is communication to avoid confusion on the field.”

Freshman Grace Grizell said,” We have all come together really nicely during games and practices to make each other better.”

Grizell also said, “It is so exciting to have won all of our games and to have started off the first Crofton high school girls soccer team with a winning streak.” 

The next game is tonight at Crofton stadium against Southern High School at 5:30.
