Head coach Anne Beaton said she knew they were going to have a tough sections match up against Hopkins Oct. 13. Although the game didn’t go the way she wanted, Beaton said she believes the final score does not show the effort Park played with.

“We actually had a lot of successful things happen,” Beaton said. “The goals didn’t really show the effort that we gave and the small victories that we had individually as a team.”

Team captain and junior Vesna Dennison said she agreed with her coach as the score doesn’t reflect the effort put out by the team.

“Hopkins is always a super tough opponent, but we kind of just had fun with it. We came out, played super hard and gave it our all,” Dennison said. 

Park lost 5-0 to Hopkins in their first section game of the season, and Beaton said it was a disappointing way to end the season although both coaches and players thought that there were positives and great memories made despite this.

“Our ability to play for each other improved and then along with some technical things with striking the ball, learning where to be on the field and defensively,” Beaton said.

Senior Jordan Dolinar said that the teams relationship with one another made the season much more memorable

“Something I’ll always remember about this season is the relationships with all the girls,” Dolinar said. “I felt like there wasn’t a divide between upper and lower classmen at all so that made it much more fun.”
