The Wolverines lost the game to Valley this past Friday. Even though they lost, they know what to improve on in order to pull out a win at their next game.

“We didn’t get the outcome we wanted, but it’s only the second game of the season,” senior Alex Alvarez said. “I’m not too stressed over it. We have a lot of things to work on and a lot of areas to improve on.”

Having fans at the game plays a huge role because it gives the Wolverines the support and motivation they need to win. 

“We definitely need more crowd interaction and spirit throughout the game to get the players more excited to play and take home a win,” junior Sydney Furr said.

The team has put time before and after school in practice to prepare for Friday’s game. Alvarez knows every practice will help them improve. 

“I think we practice way better than we play. Every day is a grind, and we get our work done fast,” Alvarez said. “We just need to fix the little things.”

For junior JJ Jaramillo, the outcome of the game was not the one he was particularly looking for. He wanted to win the game, and believes the team had what it takes for success.

“We should’ve won the game, but we made little mistakes on offense and defense,” Jaramillo said.

Even though the team had a tough loss, they did not lose the humility and respect they hold for each other. In the practices to come, they know they must work together to improve their game.

“I would like to see the team be a team,” teacher and parent Sarah Weldon said. “Encourage each other, give high fives and chest bumps. Get each other fired up to go out, play hard, and put up a fight against their opponent.”
