Lady Blue Devil seniors with coaches

The Cambridge Springs Lady Blue Devils soccer team has once again proven its grit with four wins this season. Coach Geoff Bristow, and assistant coach Alex Escalante are helping the ladies do their best on the field.

Senior captain Brenna Repko loves the sport. “It clears my mind, and has boosted my confidence throughout the years,” Repko said. Captains Brenna Repko and Lexie Burdick are helping the team work together while representing them as a whole.

The ladies of Saegertown and Cambridge Springs have worked very hard to get where they are now. Even though their athletic abilities are a key factor, teamwork is what really helps them succeed. “Teamwork is everything,” Burdick said, “One hundred percent.”

The Lady Blue Devils celebrated senior night on Oct. 4 with a victory against Maplewood 1-0. Honored seniors include; Sydney Morelli, Sheena Byham, Brenna Repko, Erin Fizer (from Cambridge) and Mylena Hernandez. This does not mark the end of their season, however. 

The ladies are set to play in the 2018 playoff competition that will begin in late October, and they will be in action tomorrow night against Iroquois at French Creek Valley School in Saegertown. The match starts at 4 p.m.

 

Lady Blue Devils’ season ends with playoff loss

By Becca Siple, Assistant Sports Editor

“When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.” This quote from Franklin D. Roosevelt could aptly describe the Lady Blue Devils soccer season. It has come to an end, but there was unexpected success before it was over. Senior Marissa Cormier, who plays outside midfield, said, “We did really good this season, I was really surprised how well we did. We beat the record last year and made it to playoffs.” They finished the season 13-6 and lost their first playoff matchup against Fairview on October 28, 4-1. Sophomore center defensive player Alaina Budzbanowski said, “I was kind of upset we didn’t do very good in the playoff game, but overall the season was good for us.”
