2017 Girls Varsity Soccer Season Wrap Up

Submitted by Coach Sean Dugan

At the end of our sectional loss the coach from Mechanicville, the number 8 ranked team in the state, said to me “You guys are a lot better than a 15 seed” and he was right. Our team this season was much better than our win/loss record would indicate as we were very competitive in several of the games we lost. In addition to a new coach, a new style and new formations there were also a lot of new faces as this young team came together. Our senior leadership was excellent lead by our captains Althea Mensing, Chloe Pratt and Ellie Plourde but the difficult competition and some key injuries resulted in a finish short of our goal. But no matter what the record or the score of a game the team never stopped working hard for each other and kept a positive attitude every day.

We had 3 players recognized for Colonial Council All Stars with Gabbie Cox on 1st team, Chloe Pratt on 2nd and Larissa Gomez with Honorable mention. The team was also recognized as a NYSPHSAA Scholar athlete team with a team GPA of 92.5 and 10 players with an average above 90. We were also active in the community with 11 players volunteering as coaches in the town rec soccer program.

We wish our seniors Alex McKearin, Larissa Gomez, Ellie Plourde, Althea Mensing and Chloe Pratt the best of luck as they move on to college next year and we look forward to next season. The solid core of returning players and the addition of some good players from this year’s JV squad will result in another successful season.
