Deirdre Erwin

When did you first begin playing the sport?

3 years old.

Do you want to play this sport in college?

Yes.

Who was a prominent coach in your sports career? Why?

Darren Marshall. He was my first club coach ever, which was NEFC, and he made me love the sport and taught me so much that I still use today on and off the field. He also helped me make so many new friends from other towns that I am still extremely close with today.

What other activities/clubs are you involved in?

Lacrosse, student council, peer ministering at Blessed Sacrament, National Honor Society.

How do you feel going into this season?

Excited, hopeful, and bittersweet.

What are some goals set for the team this coming season?/How do you plan to achieve these goals?

We want to win the Herget and make it far in tournament. We are gonna be practicing 6 days a week, work hard at every practice and treat every game like its our last.

Who are some big opponents/rivals? Why?

Natick because they always come in first in the Herget and are usually undefeated. Milton and Weymouth are also always huge because they are extremely aggressive, physical and skilled.

Do you think the team will make tournament?/How far do you think you’ll make it?

Yes. I think we could make it far as long as our defense stays strong and we take advantage of the scoring opportunities such as free kicks, corners and crosses.

Feelin’ good man.

What are some goals set for the team this coming season?/How do you plan to achieve these goals?

Make Herget and win it all as a family with the people i spend more than half my time with.

Who are some big opponents/rivals? Why?

Natick and Brookline really push us to our hardest and they still have stamina to keep going.

Yes.

Mr. Grimes and Erin Kearney. They both push and motivate me to do the best I can and try new positions.

Track and dance.

How do you feel going into this season?

Scared considering I’m playing a new position but excited to go far and hopefully win the Herget.

What are some goals set for the team this coming season?/How do you plan to achieve these goals?

Win the Herget and make tournament. We have to focus in practice and work harder than we ever have to improve.

Who are some big opponents/rivals? Why?

Natick. They always beat us but I know we have the ability to win. Also Milton is a good team and the games are really intense we are pretty evenly matched and they go either way.

Do you think the team will make tournament?/How far do you think you’ll make it?

Yes and hopefully all the way to states.

 

Megan Brigham

When did you first begin playing the sport?

When I was in first grade.

Coach Grimes. He was really supportive and gave me a lot of confidence as I moved into high school.

What other activities/clubs are you involved in?

I play club soccer for South Shore Select, I run track in the Spring and I write for the school newspaper, The Rebellion.

How do you feel going into this season?

I feel pretty good. We have a lot of running players, and will have and older, more experienced team this year. The teams we play are really competitive and a lot of games would be close.

What are some goals set for the team this coming season?/How do you plan to achieve these goals?

Hopefully we can win the Bay state Herget and make it far into tournament. To achieve this goal we will need create lots of scoring opportunities, because scoring goals is something we have struggled with in the past

Who are some big opponents/rivals? Why?

Games against Weymouth are always intense and close. Milton has always been rival for our team, and Natick is a very strong competitive team.

Do you think the team will make tournament?/How far do you think you’ll make it?

Hopefully.
