Seward girls soccer returns to varsity action after year away from the pitch
Seward High School takes the field at Redington High School for the girls' latest soccer match. It's a big season for the Seahawks because there is a season -- for the first time in two years -- they're playing a full varsity schedule.
"It's fun, and for me, it gets the adrenaline going, so it's fun," says senior Alexis Sullivan.
Seward played mostly scrimmages last season due to a lack of players, which rendered them ineligible for play. That's changed this year.
Two seniors and four juniors help compose the 22-person roster, but it's underclassmen, sophomores and a big dose of freshmen, like sequoia sieverts, round out the rest of the group
"It's kind of stressful, but at the same time it's kind of fun," said first-year player Sequoia Sieverts
First-year head coach Cody Beck has returned to his alma mater to help rebuild the program. He enjoys the challenge but admits it's not always been easy.
"Getting the girls together to play as a team, work as a team, they get along really well, having the mentality we're going to go out there and do our best," says Beck.
"It's awesome, and it's also sad because I know this is my last time playing," says Alexis Sullivan, as she and her Seahawks will get the chance to do something this season, they could not do last year, win a state title.
