The Graham Varsity Womens Soccer team is off to a great start this season. The team is very young but also very talented. Many freshmen and have joined this season along with a couple of upper-classman newcomers. The season started in early March with a scrimmage game against Carroll County which ended with a victory. They have played three regular season games so far, and their current record is 1-1-1.  They’ve faced Giles twice: the first game was away and ended with a tie of 6-6, and the second game was played at home and brought the team’s first loss of 0-4. Graham’s biggest victory came from the away Virginia High game played on March 8, ending with a score of 4-0.

Newcomer sophomore Tara Wyatt is the leading player with the most goals so far this season. She really enjoys practices and the new strategies she has learned. “It’s different but really fun. I’m glad that I can laugh and not be as stressed about being perfect. My goal is to improve this season and hopefully get back into travel soccer after,” said Wyatt.

The team is lead by Coach Hank Furry along with assistant coaches Britney Gaines and Erin Jennings. The team’s captains include senior Kathryn Perdue and juniors Julia Day, Grace Aiello, and Carianne Kinder.

“My goal this year is to hopefully make it to regions,” said sophomore Cianna Carter. It is her second year on varsity, and she is hoping the team will make it far this season. She enjoys the practices and is glad the team is so close.

The team will face Virginia High again for their second home game on April 11, 2019.
