The Lady Bronc soccer team still holds the number one spot in the 4a East Division. A 12-2 record just clinched the Broncs into having the title as Conference Champions.

The team will play their last regular season game May 15 away at Gillette.


Even though the team already holds the number one spot, they still want to defeat Gillette and enter regionals off of a win. “Just perfecting the little things and putting them together is our main focus right now. If we can do that against Gillette then it’ll be a great game and we can coast into regionals and state on some great momentum”, said Senior and captain Emily Julian.


With only three weeks left in the season, the team has been focusing on peaking at their best individual talent and dealing with the pressure of the possibility of becoming 2015 State Champions. “In order to win state we need to fine tune the technicalities, dig in and play our best soccer yet”, said Senior and captain Megan Myers. The team has pushed themselves physically and mentally during practice and games to hopefully have a better finish to their season compared to last years. “I think we have been taking care of each other really well and we win the ball in the air and have quick starts to the game to get an advantage over the other team right off the bat. We just need to work on controlling the ball in the midfield,” freshman goalie, Zoe Jones said of her team and their efforts.


Following the Gillette game, the team will head up to the YMCA of the Big Horns for their annual retreat. They will canoe, hike, eat, and become one with the nature. “I think we’re conference champs and play well because we love each other so much and have awesome coaches who care about us”, Junior Robbi Ryan said of her team. The retreat is a time where the teammates can bond over something other than soccer and get away for the weekend together before heading into the most important two weeks of their season.
