The Farmersville girls soccer team opened the new season, filled with optimism and plenty of new challenges in 2023.
The team welcomes new head coach Arian May, who also works with the Lady Farmers volleyball and girls basketball team and took over the soccer job just over a month before the season. She said she’s eager to help the team grow and implement a strong mindset this season.
“They needed someone to kind of step up and into the position this year, having played it in the past but I was able to help out,” May said. “It’s going to be fun and an interesting challenge for us.”
The Lady Farmers are young this season, led by 12 underclassmen on the varsity team. Despite the challenges that lie ahead, the team is confident it can compete at the highest level and battle for a potential playoff spot.
“We’re focusing on improving this season with our motto being ‘Win every day,’” May said. “We want to make the playoffs this season even if it is a tough challenge for us. We want to raise the ceiling of this program and lift up the team higher than it has been before.”
May believes her team has what it takes to accomplish that, with good character players ready to step into larger roles and hit the ground running. Opening the season, Farmersville scheduled games against Garland High School and Princeton, a 6A and 5A program in the area, losing both matches. The Lady Panthers won 8-0 on Jan. 4.
