Charlevoix Brings Experience into 2018

CHARLEVOIX – With a majority of its roster returning from last year’s district-title winning squad, the Charlevoix girls soccer program is expecting to be a speedy and skilled group in 2018.

Charlevoix went 14-8 a year ago en route to winning a Division 3 district championship and reaching a regional final, where it fell to Freeland.

The Rayders are expected to contend for a league title in a Lake Michigan Conference that figures to be highly competitive.

“Everything is looking up for us,” senior Rachel Nesburg said. “We have a lot of potential this season. And everyone’s just really excited to see what we can do.”

“I think we definitely have a lot of offensive players this year, so I think our offense will be a lot more tough,” added senior Raigan Novotny.

With the season opener still more than a week away, the Rayders recently participated in scrimmages at Grand Valley State and won a pair of games.

“Having the core group back is definitely a bonus for us, and we’re looking forward to getting started after spring break,” coach Peter Scholten said.

Charlevoix opens its season at Petoskey on April 5.
