For the past three years, the Skyline Girls’ Soccer Team has achieved multiple league titles, trips to the district championship, and a state semifinals appearance. The girls have had a lot to show for their hard work. They currently have a record of 12-1-2 and are looking to make a deep run in the postseason.

“Our program has had success from the very beginning,” said Varsity Coach Chris Morgan. “In regards to wins and losses, we have never had a losing season.”

This year has been no exception. The girls lost only one regular season game to Pioneer, leading to a division win and second place ranking in the state for multiple weeks in a row.

“This year we have done extremely well in regards to wins and losses,” said Morgan. “Our record is something we are very proud of and it has taken a lot of hard work and effort on the girl’s part. However, we are prouder of how close-knit this team is.”

This close bond has made the team a family and contributed to their success. “I think the team has found such good success because everyone just gets along so well,” said Varsity player Gabi Marble (‘26). “Even when it’s not team bonding, we’re all hanging out together just because we want to. It’s like we’re all just like best friends and it just makes the chemistry on the field really good.”

Another large reason for the team’s success is the contribution from the senior class. With 10 seniors on the squad this year, there has been no shortage of experience or leadership. “[The seniors] lead by example, and they are really outstanding people,” said Morgan. “We are very proud of these players and fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with them these past four years.”

Although the seniors will be leaving at the end of this year, the girls have no doubts that they’ll continue to be successful. While they’re a very old team, there are 14 underclassmen as well, setting them up to do well in the future.

“We have a lot of very vibrant and dedicated underclassmen, so I think they’ll really be able to take charge of the team next year,” said Varsity goalkeeper Sofia Nehro (‘24). “I would say they’re the foundation for why our team is so close, so I’d expect it to be the same next year.”

Overall, the girls have felt very proud of their season. For many, it’s been even better than they expected.

“I went into this year not knowing how well it would go,” said freshman Julia Moe (‘27). “Not that I had doubts about the skill level, but the fact I qualified for Nationals with my club team right before … The more games we played, the more wins we got … I am very proud to be a part of [the team].”
