Since Amanda Peterson, senior, will graduate this year, Emily Peterson, freshman, decided not to participate in softball but join her sister to play on the girls’ varsity soccer team.
“It was a lot more fun for us personally this year,” A. Peterson said. “Whenever she (E. Peterson) would throw in the ball, I would look at her and I could tell where it was going to go. It was like we were connected because we knew each other so well and knew how we were going to play.”
According to E. Peterson, they have “twin telepathy,” even though they are not twins.
Changes to the soccer team began this year due to the Petersons’ bonding. While in previous years there was a divide in the team between freshmen and upperclassmen, the team is more connected now due to A. Peterson’s acceptance of E. Peterson on the team.
“We always have something to laugh about with them,” Lizz McDaniel, junior, said. “The drama disappeared because they are always really positive and smiling. They bring that vibe to the field.”
On May 15, the girls’ varsity soccer team’s season ended with their IHSA Regionals tournament against Buffalo Grove High School.
“Even though we lost a lot, we played well on our games and we beat a team in our Conference (Hoffman Estates), so we aren’t in last place,” A. Peterson said.
