Soccer Wrap-up by 7th Grader Phin S.


The minute you think of fall, you may think of warm apple cider sliding down your throat and the brisk air against your back. But I also think of the biggest sport in the fall which is soccer. Our varsity girls' team went undefeated! The varsity boys lost only two. Just the feeling of running around on that soccer field is enough to make me sigh. This fall especially was one of the best for soccer; it was nice and cool, sometimes even a little nippy, but other than that it was a great fall and soccer season for TCS. In addition all the TCS soccer teams got to play on our brand new fields and felt the nice feeling of playing at home. All of the teams played their hearts out and we are certainly ready for next year!
