The Riverside Middle School girls soccer had 22 people signed up at the first meeting. Now we are starting the season with around 16 girls.  Girls soccer started their season off inside because of the bad weather. At their first practice they did conditioning to get them back in shape for the new season. The next day they were finally outside. They worked on ball touches and some passing drills. Some drills they were working on are chest traps, shoelaces, toe touches on the ball, and one touch passes. The first game was  Thursday September 27th, 2018 at 3:45 against Northern Burlington MS. There game was  at Whomsley Field. They, sadly, lost 4-0. As of right now, the girls have 10 games on their schedule. 6th grader Jordan Artes replies, “ This year I would like to participate in soccer, basketball, and softball.” 7th grader Emma McGee states, “ As a player I hope to improve my skills by running faster and being more attentive at my position.” Jaxlyn Gonzalez answered, “This soccer season I am looking forward to winning games and learning how to play different positions.” The RMS girls coach, Lynn Starke, said “Honestly, I just wanted to coach, to let the girls have fun and understand the concept of supporting each other on and off the field.”
