“The season has been going really good, our team is only improving,” Victorin said.

Coaches have helped Victorin prepare her for the next level by having her play different positions on the field to help her learn the game from all over the field.

“My coach has helped me prepare for the next level by playing me in different positions and forcing me to have a good touch on the ball, and to adjust to the speed of play, Victorin said.

Victorin’s parents also helped her when it has come to school and sports.

“My parents have supported me a ton. They’ve signed me up for all the camps and encouraged me to talk to coaches,” Victorin said.

Soccer has helped Victorin’s drive to become a nurse even more.

“I love helping people and I can’t imagine doing anything else but soccer has taught me how to be a team player and care about everyone,” Victorin said
