Before Jackson Hole High School went into spring break, the boys and girls soccer seasons opened March 19 with a road trip to Rock Springs.

The Broncs dropped the boys game 1-0, and the Jackson girls fell 2-0.

Kristen Pizarro, in her first year at the helm of the girls team, said despite the loss, her young, injury-ridden team showed promise.

“We went down with only 18 players, so we were a little nervous about that,” Pizarro said. “But the girls did great. Rock Springs was a better team right now. We’re young, but I was really impressed with how the girls played.”

With winter continuing to linger into the spring sports season, getting onto a full field for practice has been a challenge. Pizarro said her side has yet to practice on a full pitch and shares a net with the boys team.

“Naturally, it’s tough because we don’t have a full field,” she said. “Weather has been a challenge, but we knew that going in.

“You feel like you’re starting off behind the game a little bit that way, but we’ll get through.”

The boys and girls teams resume the season April 5, when they travel to Natrona.
