GIRLS VARSITY SOCCER TEAM BRINGS HOME THE TROPHY!
On Saturday, after beating Washington 5-0 in the morning, Whitman's Girls Varsity Soccer battled their way to a decisive 5-0 victory over Madison to win the Seattle Girls Middle School Soccer Championship. As Coach Naylor said, this was the "result of an amazing team effort from every player on the team. They played hard right from the beginning and never let up the intensity." A shout-out to the team's fans, including Mr. Orsen and his pep band. "We clearly had the best fans at any of the playoff games," said Coach Naylor. "I truly think it was the difference maker in motivating the girls to play their absolute best game!"
Go, Wildcats!!
