An Interview with Women’s Soccer Team Member about their Reigning Success


With the Women’s Soccer Team success running into this year with their second year in a row winning the Coast to Coast Conference it felt fitting to ask what was behind their success. The player that was interviewed was Junior Kenna McCarthy, #4. McCarthy is a midfielder from Midlothian, Virginia. McCarthy first hit the field in September of 2021. This season her score stats are 30-6 with the most recent edition from when Women’s Soccer played Salisbury University on Nov 4, 2022 with a score stat of 3-1.


What do you think has made your team so successful this year?

– The desire to win is what has made our team so successful this semester. Some games haven’t always started off the way we wanted, but we have the drive and the passion to win together in the end. 


How do you prepare for success for each game?

– Each game is different depending on the opponent so we will usually watch film on them and then practice accordingly. 


How much does teamwork play into your success? Do you think your success is more from the individual skill set of each player or is the success more accredited to how CNU Women’s Soccer plays together as a whole?

– Team culture is so important to this program and I think that shows over the amount of success we have had. Individual work helps the whole entire team work well together. We have had many different goal scorers this year and that just shows that the team’s success is from our own individual success. From Defense to Offense our team would be nowhere without working together as a whole unit. 


With his track record Captain’s look forward to the results of the NCAA tournament game against John Jay College on November 12th in Montclaire, New Jersey.
