The 2016 girl’s varsity soccer season started off with their first home game on March 24 against Riverton, Wyo. The victory went to Sheridan with the final score of 10-0 and gave the team a positive start to the 2016 spring soccer season.

The varsity girls coach for this season is Mallary Marshall, and the goal coach is Nick Morton. For the JV girls, the coaches include Stephanie Penrose and Ashley Cooper. Seniors on the Sheridan High School soccer teams this year include Katelynn Brooks, Sara Von Krosigk, Jamy Shassetz, Robbi Ryan, Caroline Chase, Lauren Passini, Mikaela Moore, and Mackenzie Dougherty. The small number of seniors on the team may give the girls an advantage for more leadership place.

“[Soccer] is a wonderful game that brings people from all ethnicities and walks of life together,” said senior varsity player Katelynn Brooks. “It’s exciting to take part in something so loved around the world.” She’s been playing since freshman year and is looking forward to her last season on the high school team.

Following a win of 4-0 against Natrona and a win of 4-0 against Evanston on April 2, in Casper, Wyo., it appears the 2016 soccer season for girls is looking very promising.
