The 2016 fall sports season is upon us. At Fortuna High the varsity girls soccer team is lead by head coach Kathleen Lynch who is hoping to win the first ever girls soccer league title by out playing league rival Arcata. Coming off a season’s 10-2-2 league record, they are hoping the new and old talent will come together and make a perfect 12-0 record. Beside Lynch, there are 6 team captains who are a big part of the team.
“This year there is a lot of character on the team,” says Lynch, which takes a major effect during games. Lynch says each and every one of her players whether on the field or not plays a key role on the team. Lynch says that the biggest challenge for her as the coach is trying to find game time for the freshmen and sophomores since there is not a JV soccer league.
Lynch and her team look forward to trying to secure the first ever league title for Fortuna High's girls soccer program. Out playing league opponents Arcata and Eureka will be the deciding factor in us doing that. Lynch says, “I have full confidence in my team this year, and think we will do just that.”
