Girls’ Soccer: A Team Ready to Make Their Mark

Last season the Frontier girls soccer team came up short one goal in their game against Athol  ruining their chance of proceeding to the playoffs. After losing only 3 seniors, the Redhawks have a 3-3-0 record, including their 6-1 win against Athol on September 20th. “After working so hard last year but to lose to Athol in the last few minutes of our senior night we were really determined to come out on top. This year a  6-1 win against the same team showed how much we have improved as a team this year.” says senior Jamie Byrne. The Hawks have to win at least six more games to qualify for the playoffs. This team is made up of 10 seniors, 3 juniors, and 3 returning 9th graders. “Us seniors have been playing with each other since we were in elementary school so we all work well together as a team. Although we make up most the team, the underclass students have really stepped up this year. We are all skilled but more importantly we all have a lot of heart and I know we can go far.” says senior, Julia Riordan. After two years coaching the Pioneer Valley Regional School girls soccer team, Phillip Pittelli is the new coach for the Hawks. “Coach Pittelli is really good at what he does. He is always so positive and pushes us to the level he believes we should be at. It’s a great feeling to have a coach that believes in you and your team,” says Julia Riordan. Frontier will host their senior night Monday, October 31st, at 6:30 under the lights. See you there.
