The girls’ Varsity soccer team’s Senior Night was one to remember. Before the game, seniors Neeka Nazari and McKenna Jones were honored for their accomplishments throughout the years. The Lady Raiders capitalized on their emotion from Senior Night and jumped out to a hot start, scoring two goals in the first eleven minutes of action, courtesy of sophomore Anna Heilferty in the 38th minute and freshman Emma Nguyen in the 29th minute. Stuart led at halftime by that same score of 2-0.
The Lady Raiders piled on three more goals in the second half and through the stout defense of Nazari and sophomore Chloe Beverina, they eventually cruised to a 5-0 victory. This win now elevates the Lady Raiders to 8-2-2 on the season, with their next matchup at Marshall on Tuesday, May 12.
