The athlete of the month in September is the senior Nicole Ratts, who is the captain of the Lady Marauders soccer team.


Q: How is the team this year?

A: “Honestly, this is the best soccer team that we have had in all of MV history. We all work well together and we are so connected. We work so well together that we are still undefeated, even this far into the season.”


Q: As the captain, what are your goals for the season?

A: “I would really like to go be sectional champs, and then regional champs, and then state. I think we can definitely do that because we all really want to.”


Q: How can the team improve this year?

A: “Our biggest weakness is not staying focused, especially during practice. We need to stay focused if we want to achieve our goals. We also sometimes struggle with self-discipline.”


Q: What are your personal goals for the season?

A: “I want to be the all-conference player, which is one of the highest soccer awards.”


Q: Are you planning to play in college?

A: “I have received many scholarships to play in college, but as of now, I am undecided on what I am going to do.”
