Truckee’s varsity girls soccer team also won two games over the weekend, beating Spring Creek, 3-0, on Friday and Lowry, 5-0, on Saturday. The girls are now 7-2 on the season.
“They played well, especially with the conditions,” girls soccer coach Amy Valdivia said of her team’s effort against Spring Creek, a game that was played in cold and stormy weather.
Valdivia said her team played particularly well in both games given that five seniors ” Sara Grossman, Mimi Precit, Clancy Delforge, Rachel Greenbach and Hailey Vincent ” were missing because they were taking the ACT college entrance test.

In the second half it was more of the same, with Truckee scoring three more.
Caroline Nicholas scored two goals for the Wolverines while Katy Stephens, Sara Swietanski and Lena Decrescenzo each scored one.
The Wolverines has strong defensive efforts from Kristen Otterness, Chelsea Ferreira, Allee Macrorie, Christina Silva, Annie Dunner and Elizabeth Klien, who combined to allow Spring Creek very few shots on goal.
Cammie Waller and Shelby Macrorie shut out the Spartans. Truckee has not alowed a goal this season.
