In the third episode of The Spoken Word, reporters Bella Russo and Kristen Tibbetts sit down with three of the four varsity girls soccer captains: Henna McRae, Delaney Carter and Ellie Stites. The team plays its first playoff match 7 p.m. Friday night against San Antonio Veterans Memorial, a team the Lady Knights have never faced before.

Even though they have made it to the playoffs every year, the captains are hopeful to make it past the first round for the first time in their high school careers. After losing to Dripping Springs the previous two years, the team is excited to have already faced (and defeated) the Tigers once in two tries now that Drip is a district foe.

The senior captains also take a moment to reflect on the season, including their historic victory over Drip, and how they have grown since their freshman years.
