Phoenix girls varsity soccer needs to replace key seniors

By Rob Tetro

This season, the Phoenix Girls Varsity Soccer Team aims to have a .500 record or above at the end of the season with the hope of qualifying for sectional play.

Unfortunately for Coach Bill Conklin, he knows this endeavor won’t come easily. His team will have to fill the void created by the loss of six senior starters from last year’s team.

However, the Lady Firebirds have begun the season on a positive note. In preseason competition, Phoenix played Onondaga Central School to a 5-5 tie.

Like their male counterparts, the team will be quite inexperienced. Conklin has 20 players currently on his roster. However, 12 of those players are freshmen and sophomores, which means only eight players have experience in varsity level soccer.
