Preparing to kick, freshman Jaquelyn Malapira watches as the ball comes towards her. This season, she tried out because she wanted to get back into soccer after having played on her elementary school team. “I feel like [on] the first day of tryouts, I was really nervous,” Malapira said. “I was really scared the first time. But after the first day, I realized it wasn’t that serious and it was more about having fun. I think for future people that want to try out: just do it.”
