Girls’ soccer ties Diamond Bar in an intense match

Glen A. Wilson’s girls’ soccer tied Diamond Bar HS with a final score of 2-2 on Jan. 10.

Team captain Jaylin Garibay (12) explains how the team prepared for the game and how improvements can be made for the future.

“We discussed as a team how we need to be a unit and move together,” Garibay said. “Our warmup was also good so I think that played a huge factor in our game. One thing that we could improve on is to not dropping off, energy-wise. I have noticed when we play with a lot of energy we play amazingly. Overall I am so proud of my team and the way each and every one performed.”

Garibay also shares how she helps her team succeed as a captain.

“I like to communicate with everyone throughout the game,” Garibay said. “I give advice and encouragement to my team which I think lifts people up.”

Moving forward, Lauren Sanchez (11) discusses one of the biggest highlights of the game.

“It was pretty intense when we scored our first goal and got back into the game after losing 1-0 at the half,” Sanchez said. “We went into the second half really wanting to win. I did not play a lot but when I was in I helped my team out as much as I could.”

Finally, Victoria Ruezga (9) talks about how the program has been handling a large proportion of underclassmen, as well as her experience with the team.

“Our [team] has a handful of freshmen this year, so our main priority is to set up a rhythm for them to prosper in the future,” Ruezga said. “It is very rewarding getting to prove that I belong on the team as well as just getting to hang out with everyone. We all share a strong friendship with one another.”

Girls’ soccer will next take on Rowland HS on the road on Jan. 13.
