Soccer teams preview talent at Jamboree

By Jacob Bales

The boys’ and girls’ soccer teams were showcased at the annual Jamboree on Saturday. The teams played both Jeffersonville and New Albany in scrimmage games. The boys lost both games 1-0.

Senior Danny Laird that the team has the ability to grow and rebound from the losses.

“Our team this year is young and inexperienced, but they are very easily taught,” said Laird.

The team is very young, with only five seniors starting. Although the youth, Laird is still optimistic for the outcome of the season.

“We would love to win sectionals. It is something we have never been able to do during my high school career,” said Laird.

The girls won against Jeffersonville 2-0 and tied New Albany 1-1. Junior Mary Clay commented on the team’s strengths and weaknesses.

“Our strength is our midfield. Our weakness is our defense, which is still good but has room for improvement. We lost a few seniors and that has definitely hurt us,” said Clay.

Clay also has hope for her team to win sectionals this year.
