The Dos Pueblos girls soccer team is all about tradition this season.
And they’re hoping that tradition will help them take the league title and into CIF play.
With a returner-heavy team, the Chargers are using their history together to take them to the top this year.
Jamie Bennedetto, Kayla Klopstein, Maria Solis, Rosalba Barbosa, Rachel Smith, Emma Trumbull, Shelby Hoffman, Alex Camarillo, and Megan Gee are the returning players that will lead the varsity team.
Varsity captains Smith, Bennedetto and Trumbull are looking to mold a close-nit team and keep the traditions of the Charger soccer program alive.
Some of these famous soccer traditions include soccer sisters and senior festivities throughout the season.
“Thus far the team works well together. We are still working out kinks and finding out more about each other as teammates and players,” says Smith. “But we [already] have such a team camaraderie that we are all sisters.”
The sisterhood of the Dos Pueblos girls soccer team has big goals set for the 2013 season as they don’t see second place as an option this year.
Last season the Chargers fell to Buena in the channel league. Despite the second place league finish, DP continued to the second round of CIF playoffs but this year they hope to advance past the third round and make DP soccer history and beat their 6-1-1 record from last season.
The Dos Pueblos Chargers are gearing up for their 2013 season with tradition to guide them and the desire to win to keep them going.
