The UMS-Wright Lady Bulldogs Varsity Soccer team is looking forward to another great season! After only losing 1 senior last year, the returning squad has been putting in the work on and off the field to prepare for games. From conditioning to practice to everything in between, the girls have worked diligently and passionately. The Bulldogs are looking to clench another area championship, pending a strong back line and goal-scoring strikers. Seniors and captains this year, Abigail McPhillips and Molly Sullivan, will lead with poise and tenacity as we begin this hopeful season! Come out to our games and support these dedicated Lady Bulldogs! And be loud!
