With soccer season cancelled, freshmen soccer players look forward to future

Freshman Nate McCashland has been doing soccer since he was five and it’s something he has done every summer. McCashland was planning on playing for the Pius X varsity soccer team and Gretna Soccer Club.

McCashland said, “I was shocked about the soccer season being cancelled in March so early when summer seemed so far away.”

On March 19, the boys varsity team had a scrimmage on the day they were supposed to have their first game.

McCashland said, “The scrimmage was a lot of fun and was definitely worth it to do to make up for the game.”

With McCashland’s summer plans being cancelled, he said he plans on training for next season.

Freshman Molly Spicka who was planning on playing reserve soccer this year said, “I have been playing soccer since I was six and has always been a part of my life.”

Even though Molly had only a few practices on the team, she was looking forward for a great season.

Molly has taken a positive view and said, “I was disappointed with the season being cancelled but this gives me an opportunity to spend time with my family and play the summer by ear.”

Freshman Sam Spicka said, “I always looked forward to the soccer season being able to engage with my teammates and become a better player overall.”
