A melancholy day for the girls soccer team as they walked out onto the Ryan Curley Athletic Field on October 14, as the seniors would play their last home game at RHS ever.

The varsity girls soccer team has eight seniors this season, the highest number a sports team has seen at Rockport in years.  Many of them have been playing sports at Rockport since middle school, and for some of them soccer is just one of the multiple sports they play. All of the girls are currently in the process of applying to college, and they have big dreams for the future.

Captain Rosie McNiff has played varsity soccer for 5 years and has been a captain for two, she is a force to be reckoned with at center mid, and she hopes to go to college in Virginia. Captain Ariana Bouchie has played varsity soccer for 4 years as a defender and wants to be a marine biologist. Alexa Kamm has been a varsity athlete for 4 years, and has been a starting winger for 3, and wants to be a veterinarian. Tayler Aylward has been on the team for 4 years, playing multiple positions and excelling in all of them, and plans to go to college far away. Racahel Young has been on the team for 4 years as a striker; she plans to go to school for business. Perry Wilson has been on varsity for 2 years and is a star sweeper player; she plans to go into a scientific field in the future. Sydney Champagne has been on the varsity team for 2 years as well, playing striker, and plans to pursue a career in political journalism. Janelle McCormick is the newest player to the team, debuting on varsity for the first time her senior year playing an aggressive defensive game; she plans on going to school to be a dietician.

These eight girls have had an extremely strong presence on the team and have created very positive influences on the younger girls around them. They all play with their whole heart and have gave it their all. Their teammates could not be more proud of them.

As for the seniors; they are sad to leave, as soccer has been a big part of their lives for a long time (some of them have been playing since they were toddlers), and are sorrowful to watch this chapter of their lives come to a close. However, they are all excited for their futures and are grateful for the memories they’ve made while being a part of this wonderful team.
