“I was really hoping we’d win because we practiced so hard, but it’s just one game so I’m proud of my team,” senior Juan Candido said.
Cheerleaders from both schools performed chants on the sideline during the game. The Coyote Cheer Team performed a halftime show, which included tumbling and stunting.
“I’m happy that we got to perform at halftime! It’s always fun to support our team,” sophomore Rachael Kimmich said.
The Southwest Soccer Team has planned extra practices every other Saturday to make improvements for the upcoming games.
“We win as a team, we lose as a team. We’ll just have to try even harder next game,” junior Kenneth Faccinto said.
The Southwest Soccer Team is coached by Art teacher Jared Odgen and Student Ambassador Coordinator Edgar Morales. Before the game, the Southwest Soccer Team practiced three weeks in advance, four days a week, for two hours each day.
