The Bears had a strong season in 2013, finishing with a record of 6-6-2. Throughout the fall this group of athletes worked hard to develop a possession based style of play and in the process strung together many minutes of quality soccer. One great high of the season for the team was an exciting 4-2 win over Taft in which senior forward, Keunna Dill ‘14, had a hat trick. A second was when one of the hardest working players on the team, Caroline Slyer ‘16, scored her first goal of her Berkshire career against Miss Porter’s.
The Bears had four main goals for the year: to improve individual skills, build as a team, and play to the very best of their ability, all while having some fun along the way. Despite a few disappointing losses early in the season, the Bears persevered to end their last six games with a 4-2 record. The 2013 team graduated seven seniors, three of whom will continue to play for their college teams this fall. We wish them all the best of luck. The core of the squad returns in 2014 and the Bears are looking forward to building on that end-of-season momentum and capitalizing on it.
