The soccer team began day two of its fall camp at 7 a.m. continuing to work on conditioning and individual skills. In the evening session, defense was the main focus with the team doing many small group and individual drills that worked on the players’ defensive skills. Overall, day two saw improvements from yesterday and a more cohesive team effort.

 

“To see steady progress in day two is obviously important,” said head coach Dan Tobias. “The coaches need to see it and the student-athletes need to see it. When the team talked at the end of the session we all agreed that we had seen progress but that we can play better. It really shows the maturity and understanding of the group. I am pleased with where we are at and we have some very positive things to build on. The attitude, effort and pulse of the team are very good.”

                            

“Today went a lot better than yesterday,” added junior Kaity Heath. “The nerves and upset stomachs from yesterday were gone. Practice went a lot smoother and had a really good intensity.”
