         Balancing football and schoolwork is a challenge because after games or training I’m always tired and don’t have the energy to do homework. But you have to learn to push yourself to complete everything. Socially I’ve made a lot of friends through playing against other teams.

        HNC girls have a lot of heart and passion for the game. We were defeated constantly in our first two years of competing and we never allowed other people’s opinions of us to bring us down. We stuck together through it all and came out to training all the time in order to become the champions we are today. A lot dedication and from the support of our parents, we will continue to be the winners of all of the leagues to come.
