BVT Girls Soccer Looks to Follow Up Banner Year

2018 marked perhaps the most successful season in
the history of the Blackstone Valley Tech girls' soccer program. The Beavers posted a 19-3-1 record, captured the state vocational championship and won the Central Mass. district title for the first time in program history.
All of the winning has BVT head coach Jay Porter setting his sights even higher this fall.
"We always try to build on the previous year," Porter said. "This year, our goal will be to get back to the playoffs as always, compete in our league, repeat as Central Mass. champs and have a better showing if we get to the states."
The experience of being there a season ago figures to serve Valley Tech well should it advance to the state semifinals again.
"Last year, we might have been a little shell shocked when get got down to the final four," Porter said. "It was a
lot for the girls."
BVT lost five seniors from last year's team, all of them
core players who solidified the middle of the field. "Even though it was a lot number, it's tough for us
because the strength of the middle of the field is what we now have to rebuild," Porter said.
The good news for Valley Tech is that the top scorer from a season ago, Emma Ballard, is back for her sophomore year.
"She is in great form," Porter said. "We expect great things from her again this year, but last year she was a freshman and unknown. This year, the other teams know about her and will have a different way to combat her."
Senior captain Cassidy Waldo is taking over the center fullback position, Porter said. Waldo is recovering from an ankle injury but is expected back in the next couple of weeks and to be a leader on the back line.
Senior Brianna Brothers takes over the center midfield
position this fall after a couple of years away from the soccer program.
"Her talent and skill in the middle has been impressive," Porter said.
On the outside, Maddie Magri is back as an outside midfielder but may spend some time playing forward. With her skill and awareness, Porter said he is hoping she can be productive up top alongside Ballard.
Junior Rebecca Ashmore and freshman Ella Gumieny are going to compete for time in net, Porter said. Gumieny joins the BVT program after starting on the Douglas High varsity team as an eighth grader.
The talent has Porter optimistic for the coming season.
"We are hoping we can build on last year," he said," and maybe bring another championship to Valley Tech."
