With a new coach, new players and a new attitude this year, the Albion women’s soccer team has high hopes and better chances to complete a better season than previous years.
Last time The Pleiad spoke with Eric Scott, women’s soccer coach, he was hopeful his team would have a successful season. So far, things look good for the soccer team after the team won their first game in two years.
“I was happy for those players in the program that hadn’t had that feeling of winning in a couple of years,” Scott said.
Many Brits were pleasantly surprised when the women’s soccer team brought home their first win this year against the College of Mount St. Joseph. Scott hopes the success will continue and the team will achieve their goal of winning the MIAA tournament.
“As a fourth-year player this year, I wanted to win more than anything,” said Lindsey Lubanski, Lathrup Village senior and one of the captains.
The team is now 0 and 1 in the conference. Lubanski said she and her co-captain, Anne Marie Galus, Saginaw senior, both set a new mentality for the rest of the team that this was their year to win.
“We are defiantly more cohesive this year,” said Emily Wingard, Grayling sophomore. “We get along a lot better and we worked really hard for that win.”
In addition to the new mindset, the women’s soccer team also gained ten new first-year players.
“Eric did a great job recruiting,” Lubanski said. “They are all very talented.”
