Girls soccer coach Riggins Delaney could not be prouder of her team’s accomplishments.
“It was one of our goals before the season started to go undefeated during regular season play. With only two games left before the playoffs, we have achieved that goal,” Delaney added.
Several seniors wish to continue playing soccer after high school ends.
Reghan Kelly, a senior on the team, has signed to play for the University of South Florida in the upcoming year.
“Being part of this team has made me feel like a part of a family and with this I am ready to start a new family at USF,” said Kelly.
When asked what she wanted to say to the seniors, Riggins said, “My biggest piece of advice would be to live in the moment and enjoy every new chapter of life.”
