2-1 Loss vs. Allegan

Ladies, we're in a bit of a lull within this past week or so, and it's up to ALL of us to get out of it. Zeeland West and a three-game week on the horizon. We can do this! Hamilton tough.

Upcoming Week!

(Winter??!!) Greetings, everyone! Hope everyone is surviving and thriving this weekend somehow?!
Checking in with the tentative schedule for another exciting week of being together as a soccer fam:

**Monday: game @ Holland Christian (varsity game time = 7:15 PM)...DRESS UP in school...meet in my room at 4 PM...bus leaves at 4:45 PM...Allie = team meal in my room...wear black.
**Tuesday: 3:15-5:15 PM training...wear gray...Varsity Baseball game immediately to follow????
**Wednesday: 3-5 PM training...wear black. Parent/Teacher Conferences immediately to follow for staff.
**Thursday: 3:15-5:15 PM training...wear gray.  Hope Men's Soccer vs. Cornerstone at 7 PM if anyone's interested??
**Friday: home game vs. Allegan...meet in my classroom at 3 PM...Olivia = team meal...Laura/Rylin = ball girls...wear black. Good luck, Collage Concert girls! Anyone attending as support perhaps?!

I'm really liking the foundation of this season thus far, girls--for a variety of reasons on and off the field. We've got plenty of work to do, but I think this team can be very good...perhaps great. Think "team goals". Think "effort". Think "one word focus". Keep workin'.

2-1 Loss @ T.K.

Tonight kind of brought us back down to earth a bit, Hawkeyes: a solid team on its home turf put in a good effort for the deserving win. Flush it. Learn from it. Beat HC Monday!

1-0 Win vs. Byron Center

A win is a win is a win...as they say.

Pretty sloppy game overall, and we WILL get better!

Job well done on battling tough for a win in the end, Hawkeyes!

1-0 Win vs. Holland

Overall job well done last night, ladies. Things are only going to get more difficult this week though as two tough opponents are next on our slate! Keep fightin' and doing the right things on and off the field!

And We're Back!

Time to get this thing revved up again, Lady Hawkeyes!

First, check out the newly updated "successful season/team goals" ideas you all came up with recently by scrolling down and looking to the left. Let's keep these as priorities each and every day! You also have one word that you have pledged to live up to each and every day, on and off the field. Important, meaningful stuff!

Here goes with this coming week's tentative schedule:

**Monday: 3-5:15 training on the turf field...wear black...required Team Dinner @ Robinson's after! Yes, we need to start at 3 PM in order to have a quick chat, warm up, and re-test for the 1-mile on the track...and then get a bunch of important work in. Wear flats to begin with obviously. We trust that you've stayed in shape and have improved since the first day of tryouts!
**Tuesday: home game vs. Holland (turf field...6:45 PM Varsity start)...what to wear in school = TBD...meet in my room by 3:45 PM for team meal/meeting...Team Kragt (I believe?) = meal...Sierra/Alexis = first half JV ball girls...wear gray.
**Wednesday: 3:15-5:15 training on the game grass field...wear black.
**Thursday: home game vs. Byron Center (grass)...what to wear in school = TBD...Shelby/Maddie = ball girls...Syd E. = meal...meet in my room by 3 PM...wear gray.
**Friday: game @ T.K....what to wear in school = TBD...bus leaves at 3:30 PM...team meal (Morgan) on the bus...wear black...GIRLS ARE NOT REQUIRED TO RIDE THE BUS HOME!

Big week for a variety of reasons, girls! Let's (continue to) do this! :)

2-0 Win @ Jenison

That's a solid start to the regular season, ladies. Job well done. And we have much more work to do!

As mentioned in the post-game huddle, it's the EFFORT plays that will make the difference for us this season--just like in this game.

We've got a long way to go but liking the progress thus far!
