RANGELY I The Rangely High School girls’ soccer team has seen a lot of improvement this year, according to head coach Patsy Wanstedt. After last weekend’s play, Wanstedt noted that the team has scored more goals while holding the opposition to fewer scores.
“The team has all worked much harder in practice to improved our skills, and we work more in drills to become faster and to improve our ball-handling techniques,” she said. “Our team is also very young, and there is only a handful of upper classmen who are far out-numbered by the underclassmen.”
Wanstedt said she has seen a great improvement with the upper and lower class members since the first day of practice.
“We work more as a team and communicate better with each other,” she said. “In the past six days, we have had three games.
“All the girls worked really hard for all three games, even though we were low in numbers,” Wanstedt said, pointing out that in one of the games Rangely only had two substitutes.
“This means most of the girls had to play both 40-minute halves with no breaks,” she said. “All of the girls have been working so hard.”
Wanstedt said that as such a young team, the Rangely girls have done very well and have improved very much in all aspects of the game.
