Fall Sports in the Limelight

Fall Sports Season is bringing new stars into the limelight. The soccer season is starting off great with a undefeated (5-0) record from the Dolphins led by captains Jacob Konikoff and Matt Johnson. Newcomers Bryce Harrison and Philip Usonis have been crucial to the success of the boys soccer team with midfielder Reed Goldner saying, “without them, the team wouldn’t be able to reach the level of success we’re at right now.” The returning players are making a big impact on the game as well and are doing a great job welcoming the newcomers. Other fall sports teams are improving on their records including boys volleyball now (3-3), girls volleyball now (2-3), field hockey now (3-0) and cross country placing in the top three each meet.

The cross country team, led by captains Rex Serpe and Madisen Patrick, has had a sensational season and is looking forward to another good year. The team is focused on doing well in each meet and coming together as one unit. Sensational runner Owen Richards has dominated alongside Rex Serpe, with both athletes placing in each race they’ve ran.

The volleyball teams, led by boys captains Noah Joyce, Nathan Branson, and Grayson Browning, had a rough start to the season but are starting to improve on their record. Captain Nathan Branson believes, “we are not playing to the level we should be playing at and that in order for the team to do well, everyone has to contribute equally.” He also believes that the team will come together as one unit and is looking forward to what they can do this season with several people stepping up and doing what the team needs to win.

The girls volleyball team, led by captains Bayla Deel and Kennedy Beale, has had a rocky start to the season but is focused on coming back and ending the season with a winning record. Haley Jernigan states, “Some players beat down on themselves when they mess up and need to let that go in order to win.”

The field hockey team is undefeated with a 3-0 record, led by captains Alexandra Land, Hope Wheeler, Sydney Dudley, and Julia Beck. The field hockey team is off to a great start and contributes this to the teamwork that they have; Alexandra Land follows that with “teamwork allows us to connect on the field and read each other.” She believes that adding new faces with experience to the team in years to come is going to help with keeping the team fresh. They’re focused on doing well and look forward to a winning season this year.

All of the teams are excited for the season to come and are looking forward to finishing out strong and bringing in some wins for the Cape Community.
