All - Every couple years or so I send one of these emails out, and it is my pleasure to do so again tonight! The Evergreen High School Girls Soccer team is on a playoff run and we want your support! We are into the semi-finals of the state playoff this Saturday at 1:30 PM at Shea Stadium in Highlands Ranch, playing against Windsor HS. If we advance to the final, we play the winner of the 11AM semifinal between D’evelyn and Valor Christian. The Championship match would be next Wednesday the 24th, at 5PM at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City.
This is such an easy team to support. They have worked hard and improved so much as the year progressed, have been dedicated to each other and have exhibited terrific sportsmanship. We are led by an awesome group of 11 seniors, and by our three captains, Kate Athenour, McKenna Norton, and Sofia Weiner. Below is a picture of the team, followed by the names of the players who want to get their names etched on that state championship trophy!
The team has played better in each round of the playoffs, beginning with a 4-0 win over Discovery Canyon, then beating Standley Lake 5-1, and Wednesday we beat the #2 seeded Wheat Ridge Farmers by a score of 2-1. It was a fun (and cold and wet) night that propelled us to the state semifinals.
Community support means so much to a team in a playoff run! I hope you all can be our "12th player" over the next week! And…please share this with others and make some noise this Saturday and next Wednesday!
Thanks, and….Go Cougars!
