Despite the 2020 high school spring sports seasons being cancelled, a strong group of seniors has kept the Beaver Dam High School girl soccer team engaged through these difficult times. Head coach Rob Nill tells DailyDodge.com that with things not going as planned because of COVID-19, his eight seniors have been great leaders to the 40-plus student-athletes in the program.
Once the start of the season was suspended, Nill says that his team continued to workout on their own to stay in shape just in case they were given the chance to get the season going. He says that coaches have been posting individual workouts and motivational pieces online for the girls.
Nill adds that last week, the seniors took the initiative to begin putting different types of challenges online for the girls to compete against each other and stay active through the rest of what would have been the soccer season. He says that its important for the girls to stay in shape, because many of the girls will be playing club soccer or other sports later this year.
Nill says that he was impressed with the preseason work a good number of his players were putting in leading up to when the first practice was scheduled to happen. With a veteran squad, the Golden Beavers were hoping to push their way up the Badger North standings. Nill says it’s a bummer that those eight seniors won’t get to compete this year as soccer was many of the players “sport of choice” in high school and he was hoping send them off with a great season.
This year’s senior class for BDHS girls soccer included; Maya Maron, Anna Streblow, Jaycee Gundert, Kylee Mullenbach, Maria Guerrero, Marin Stauffacher. Maria Salazar, and Abril Lopez.
