On Tuesday, August 15, 2023, the Sycamore Lady War Eagles hit the field for their season opener in an away game against Davidson Academy. Sycamore fell to the Lady Bears, 0-2.
"The start of our season has gotten off to somewhat of rocky start with dealing with many injuries, illnesses, and things like that," said Head Coach Tyler Turpin. "We have been improving with every game we have played so far, and are looking to continue that trend."
On Thursday, August 17, Sycamore celebrated their first win of the season, taking down the Springfield Lady Yellow Jackets, 4-2. A brace by freshman Olivia Binkley and goals by juniors Izzy Hess and Emily Tuttle helped lead the War Eagles to victory.
"The girls are starting to play better together with every rep and game we have been able to play," Turpin added. "Once we get healthy and get everyone back, I think this team will start seeing better results quickly. I believe this team will not only compete for another district title, but will also have the chance to compete for a region title this year."
"We are just looking to get better every day to be playing our best come tournament time in October."
This week, the ladies of Pleasant View will welcome the Montgomery Central Lady Indians on Tuesday, and travel to Portland on Thursday to face the Lady Panthers.
