Stocked with new players, girls soccer kicks off

The 2021–2022 Varsity team upon becoming league champions after their win against Sequoia.

As the soccer season comes to a start, they’re facing a strong season with their first opponents being Menlo Atherton, at home at 4:30 on November 30.

The team won CCS in 2017, won league in the 2021-2022 season, and had a preseason record of 7-0 in the last season, setting a high bar.

“The goal is to make it to CCS,” junior and defender Jocelyn Avalos said.

With a strong teamwork built before the loss of multiple seniors, the team strives for rebuilding and connecting with the newer team members. 

“Since we lost a lot of seniors last year and the year before, [a goal is] getting our team to connect a lot better because we have a lot of new girls this year,” senior and left and right wing, Ava Brooks said. “just syncing with our team and being able to play better with one another since it’s like a very new team.”

The biggest rivals for the team this season are Sequoia and Menlo Atherton, with Burlingame following close behind. Varsity plays both of their biggest rivals at home in the same week, with Menlo Atherton on January 23, and Sequoia on January  25, this upcoming year

“Sequoia is [becoming] a really good team now” senior and wingback Alya Madhani said, “and MA [Menlo Atherton] is always really good.”

Woodside faces their first opponents, Menlo, at home on Thursday, November 30.

“We’re here to win, and to [go to] CCS and dominate,” Brooks said.
