Simpson women’s soccer season review

Simpson University Sports News


REDDING, Calif. - As the seasons have changed, Simpson’s women’s soccer season has come to an end. Though the season ended on a high note with a win against UC Merced, the Red Hawks didn’t achieve many of the goals that they had initially set out to reach. The Lady Red Hawks wrapped their season up with a 3-0 loss against Menlo.

With the tough loss against Menlo, it is now time to focus on the future of the program. One might say that this year’s team was plagued by the inconsistent play on both the offensive and defensive ends. Though this may be seen as negative, there are so many positives that can be taken out of this year. For instance, the women’s team will only be graduating two senior players. What also needs to be considered is that this year’s team was very young. This year was also Dan Anderson’s first year as the head coach, which resulted in some adjustments to a new coaching system.

Looking back at the season, it can’t be deemed as a success or disappointment. Yes, the record was a disappointment, but the lessons learned, relationships built and the memories created will last past this season for the Lady Red Hawks. When it comes down to it, this was a year of transition and everyone can look forward to the women’s team reaching its full potential in years to. This might have not been the record or year that the ladies expected, but the ability to recruit and bring in more players will give them an opportunity to compete for the Cal Pac championship next year.
