SENIOR DAY 2017 With the end of April approaching, we're getting ready to wish a happy graduation to a group of six wonderful seniors: Captains Kait Manning, Aly Kruse, and Ali Valentin, midfielder Mary Grace Braun, defender Erika Bethmann, and goal keeper Taylor Mott. As forwards, Kait and Aly have lead the team in goals or assists in each of the last four seasons, relentlessly running down through balls, whipping in crosses, and using any available body part to put the ball in the net. Ali brought a lot of attacking abilities to our defensive core when she transitioned from outside mid to outside back as a sophomore. Able to play on the left or right, Ali provided a dangerous threat every time she touched the ball. Mary Grace was the engine in our midfield, usually leading the team in minutes played and in tackles. She was never afraid to throw herself into a challenge or run down a lose ball to make a play, always putting the team before herself. Erika came in as a sophomore transfer student and immediately added another element to our defensive ranks. Without ever looking for the spotlight, she worked hard to make everyone around her a better player. Taylor was a steady and reliable goalkeeper who did a fantastic job in mentoring the younger goal keepers and was always willing to put together extra "gk's only" training sessions. Passing along her experiences will have a lasting impact.
Our SENIOR DAY game will be at the Mount Vernon Campus, Saturday April 22, at 11:30am.
Come out and cheer us on as we say thanks to an incredible group of women. Next Up: Saturday, April 22, 11:30am at GW's Mount Vernon Campus vs Georgetown Sunday, April 23, 3:00pm @ Georgetown
Info about the team: The GW Women's Club Soccer team was founded in 2001 and since then we have grown into a fun and competitive team. We compete in a league during the fall against other schools in the area. For the past 5 years we have qualified for regionals and will be going again this year! During the fall we have practice 2-3 times during the week (two outdoor and sometimes one indoor) and games on the weekend. While we are a competitive we also like to have fun and do things as a team!
