After an undefeated summer season, the Center Hill High School girls soccer team has gotten off to a rocky start and is working to improve.

“We won our first game, lost the next four, then won the most recent one,” head coach David Burgess said.

Mallory Gaines, a midfielder and forward for the Lady Mustangs, is optimistic.

“I’m expecting us to do well throughout the season,” the senior said.

On a personal note, Gaines said she would like to score more. So far this season, she is responsible for 10 goals. Teamwise, Gaines said her goal includes playing more together, which Burgess would also like to see.

“At this point, we need to improve communication,” he said. “Our expectations for the year are to improve as a team and get better throughout the season.”

Bre Jimenez, a junior whose positions are left defense and center defense, also wants to see the team improve.

“[My goal is to] have a better season and to improve as a team and hopefully make the playoffs,” she said.

Senior Abigail Penfield shares the same outlook.

“We have a lot of potential,” said Penfield, a midfielder and forward. “If we work really hard, I think we can do really well this season.”
