The Crusader girls’ soccer team finished their 2013 campaign with a 5-10-1 record, picking up wins over PACT Charter, Prairie Seeds Academy, Glencoe-Silver Lake, International School of Minnesota, and Spectrum throughout the season.
LHS head coach Stefan Wismar said overall, it was a good season.
“We played our best team soccer since I took over as coach three years ago,” he said. “We saw this with an improvement in overall much tighter scores, with most of the teams we competed with this year even if we did not get the win.”
Battling illness and injury early in the season, Wismar said younger players stepped up to fill holes and showed the promise of future Crusader squads.
“Very proud of our girls who had to fight through a few weeks with injuries to three starters, which is often the case in soccer, but glad the other girls on the team stepped up during that time,” he said. “That speaks well of our team looking forward to next year.”
This season, LHS will say goodbye to just four seniors in Krianna Boelke, Grace Gassen, Brittany Wilaby, and Brandee Borst, all of whom will be missed.
“They all contributed significantly to our success as a team and were all great leaders throughout the season,” Wismar said.
