Londyn Furnish gets excited for the 2021 soccer season.

- Macie West, Sports Editor

Recently the soccer team held tryouts. I had the opportunity to talk to a few varsity players from the girl’s side. 

Due to COVID-19, the past season was cut short and it is unknown what this upcoming season will hold.
