After a very unique season - one that almost didn't happen - the Campolindo Girls Soccer 2021 Varsity team went undefeated 10-0 this season. The players and coach decided to give their seniors a season to remember in their last year. The team started on April 16 against College Park and went down on the score 1-0 on the first half, but since then the team hit a spark that never died, according to head coach Luis Pinto. "We fought and gave our best to every team we played and slowly started noticing a winning streak," Pinto said. "Our confidence went up, we trained better, and we were determined to be back-to-back league champions. And we did it, we won every game and some of our most memorable wins were versus a Division 1 school, Clayton Valley Charter, and of course our rivals Miramonte and Acalanes."
The varsity team worked really hard - even when the school was struggling with field space for its training, since all sports were back. The team worked it out and took the early morning shift, training from 6:45 to 8 a.m. "It was rough to get high school kids to wake up any earlier than school time but they were determined," Pinto said. "We honor our seniors Jojo Flower, Gracie McCauley, Kendal Runckel, Julia Ortega, Siena Giordano, Lindsay Davis and Siena DeCarlo. We want to wish all the seniors the best of wishes and to tell them we're proud of them for pulling it together in such a challenging year."
This was also the first year the program had two players committed to Division 1 colleges: Kendall Runckel will play for UC Davis and Julia Ortega will play for Arizona State. "What a memorable season we had," Pinto said. "Thank you to all our players, Campolindo staff and the parents for their support this year. We will never forget!"
