Tabor soccer ready to improve on 2017 record

The Tabor College women’s soccer team will be striving to improve last year’s 5-10-2 record, fifth-year head coach Ian Thomson said.

Returners for the squad, seniors Ruby-Anne Fines, Ashleigh Lara, Araceli Wallace-Carmona, Alexis Olivares and Courtney Yochum; juniors Hannah Armand, Ally Simpson and Derian Garrison; and sophomores Daniela Rojas and Brianna Simpson will provide valuable leadership for the squad, but the team’s youth and inexperience will be a challenge, Thomson said.

“The freshmen are hungry, physical and play hard,” Thomson said, “and the transfers will bring much-needed college experience to the team.”

The team also chose several goals, including finishing above .500, reaching the playoffs and achieving a team GPA above 3.0, Thomson said.

“If we can be patient offensively and disciplined on defense,” he said, “we will grind and compete with anyone.”
