Women's Soccer

By Brooke Budde

With players and coaches hailing from top competitive teams all over San Diego, it’s no surprise that the PLHS Women’s Soccer program continues to impress year after year. It has housed several successful alumni who continue their collegiate soccer careers all over the nation.

This season, the varsity girls, led by senior captains Sophie Roussos, Genevieve Chao, and Angelina Lococo, held an overall record of 6-12-4. The majority of their goals came from sophomore Adelka Hancova, who utilized her extreme speed and ability to push past her defenders and score seven goals for the Lady Pointers. Senior Ella Peter, who suffered untimely MCL and PCL tears early in the season, cannot wait to get back on the field.

She says, “My injury is supposed to be a three month recovery but I’ve been doing really well in physical therapy and am going to start practicing again soon.”

Junior Varsity has certainly earned bragging rights this past season. They achieved an outstanding record of 13-5-1 under captains Jenna Calin, Jordyn Owen, Julia Borger, and Stacy Zirambe-Vargas. Their top scorer, sophomore Alani Maghett, scored seventeen goals over the course of twenty games. Their coach, Jeremy Young, is very proud of his team but attributes all of the credit to the players. He believes that with a healthy balance of hard work and having fun, success will come naturally.

“I think the team’s success comes from all of the girls genuinely getting along and having fun. There are no egos on this team. They all understand everyone on the team is responsible for its success,” says Jeremy.

The Lady Pointers are also proud to announce the introduction of PLHS’ inaugural soccer clinic, coming this summer. The clinic will be held in June and hosted by the players and coaches themselves. They look forward to seeing and playing with future Pointer athletes.
