For W.A. Hough High School girls’ soccer team co-captain Hannah Robinson, being the underdogs going into the State Championships was motivating – not intimidating.
“It’s almost a more fun way to play,” she said, “because you have nothing to lose.”
The team, ranked No. 2 in the nation and undefeated going into the championships May 26, faced the No. 1 high school team in the nation, the undefeated Green Hope High School Falcons. And the Falcons were favored to win.
In the locker room before the game, Hannah and her co-captains knew they needed to step up, be leaders, and show the team they weren’t nervous, she said.
“We told them it’s the end of the year, so give it all you’ve got,” Hannah said.
