The Lady Bulldogs finished their soccer season Tuesday night, with a 2-5 league record and a chance to recognize the team’s seniors at Senior Night.
The Foster High girls lost 8-1 to Renton High School Indians at Neudorf Stadium. The lone goal was scored by junior Elizabeth Reh in the 78th minute, following a goal-keeper deflection of a penalty kick.
The seniors, Sukhdeep Shergill and Lesley Delgado, “both had a great year and were given a terrific send off by their teammates,” said Coach Ray Schriber.
Overall, the team was 4-12 and finished sixth in the Seamount League.
“The team did a lot of growing this year as individual players and as a cohesive unit,” said Schriber of his first year coaching the girls.
Sixteen girls could return next year, all of whom “had plenty of game-time experience and now have a better idea of the competition that we face during the season,” he said.
There’s motivation to improve in the off-season, he said, and the team is organizing times to condition and train next year.
Schriber is expecting to field a junior varsity team and varsity team next year, with the interest shown at Foster and more girls playing sports again.
“I think the relationships built this year will bring more girls into the program and continue to fill the numbers and add depth to our team,” he said.
