Becky Phillips returned from the first pre-season soccer game today with high hopes for the next few months of gameplay. She is known by her team as “Becky the Beast,” because of the strength of her throw-ins from the sidelines. As a key defensive player, her teammates rely on her powerful kicks and throws in order to keep possession of the ball. Becky has been playing soccer since she was six years old and now returns as one of five varsity seniors. Although the game today ended in a loss, Becky still believes the MTAL title is in reach. “It can only go up from here,” she says. “It would be nice to beat Carmel though, since our games usually end in a tie.” Despite knowing that there are always things to improve upon during practice, Becky knows the team will succeed in her last season.
