UME Soccer Kicks Off Season

G. Smith, Staff Writer

 After Tuesday’s games got canceled due to rain, UME Prep Soccer will officially kick off the season with a Varsity Boys game at Uplift Heights Prep, 2650 Canada Dr, Dallas 75212, this Thursday.

   The boys and girls team both consist of 21 players each. They will be competing for starting positions and for first place in the district. The teams both played really well last year but both teams graduated a lot of seniors. The teams picked their captains on Friday (Maddie Colvard and Lauren Horton for the girls and Andre Tatro and Guerin Smith for the guys), where they also received their jersey numbers. Coach Villanueva has two parents helping him this year, Chuck Smith with the boy’s team and Kristen Long with the girl’s team. Both teams combined have eight seniors in total, four juniors, 13 sophomores, six freshmen, four 8th graders and seven 7th graders.

The teams will be looking to start off the season well where hopefully they will get a win. The teams have been practicing for a couple of weeks now and they have been working hard and getting better as a team because there is “No I in TEAM”!!!

Well, good luck to the soccer teams this year, and Go Eagles!
