Soccer is back in swing at East Forsyth. The program is currently on a very positive note. In the past year, the Lady Eagles have had a very successful season, and the men followed them up by having a strong season themselves. They were able to run the table winning every conference game and make a state playoff run. This is something that the women are not only capable of, but have proven they can do it in the past.
There is no reason to believe that this year will be any different. With seniors Bridget O’Brien, Claire Campbell, Kateland McDade, Madi Huckabee, and Kendra Perley ready to take the season on, they are very confident in the team’s capabilities. However, Perley is suffering from a knee injury and will not be able to play at the beginning of the season. Even though the team may have lost players from last year, they definitely have players who can fill in those positions.
The team has had several workouts to prepare for the season. These include strenuous sessions before school starts as well as getting out and playing on the field in the afternoons. Although they are difficult, the team knows they are necessary in order to be ready for the season.
The season kicks off with the Forsyth Cup. This is a tournament between all eight schools in Forsyth County. It’s always a great way to start off a season and a meter for how successful each team could be this year.
Come support your Lady Eagles throughout the season! Schedules can be found on East Forsyth’s website.
