Girls Soccer strives for success

The Fremont ladies soccer team came into the year hoping to improve from last year’s record of 6 wins and 13 losses. Unfortunately the Lady Wolves are still fighting an uphill battle of getting points on the board.

The team had a coaching change, bringing in Alain Reyes as their new head coach. However, they returned several starters such as seniors Ashlyn Gwen, Cora Fowers, and Junior Avery Charlesworth.

Despite most of the games being decided by just one goal, or even going to shootouts, the team finished the regular season with a record of 3 wins and 12 losses, which qualified them to be the #16 seed in the Class 6A playoffs, where they faced #17 Herriman. The winner would move on to face undefeated #1 seed Davis. In the first round of the playoffs, the girls soccer team lost a hard fought battle with Herriman 3-2.

While the team’s record did not improve this year, there were several highlights. Beating rival Weber (a #8 seed) in a close 2-1 game was something the seniors will never forget. Livean Fisher describes how it was a high energy game made even better with the rivalry. “There was a lot of beef before the game so it kinda raised the stakes” she explained.

The team was led by senior forward Ashlyn Gwynn, who scored 24 goals and had 20 assists on the year. Coach Reyes said that Maribel Shellabarger, Liveah Fisher, and  Maggie Ware were also key players this year, each having their own pivotal moments.

There is some hope for next season, as it appears this Wolves team was young and will bring back a few returning starters for next year: Arizeth Reyes, Halle Wyatt and Ally Hatch. Coach Reyes believes there needs to be a stronger offensive attack, and consistency as a team.

With new rival high school Westfield opening next season, things may change for the soccer team, as some of the players might be suiting up for the new school. One of the beautiful things about sports, however, is that you never really know what will happen until the games are played. The Lady Wolves soccer team will be up for the challenge in 2024.
