Sun-Sentinel, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, 9 January 2006, Being home-schooled doesn’t hinder girls’ soccer team
“There’s a misconception about home-schooled kids that they may not have social skills,” coach Bob Bemis said. “But these kids are seeing each other more and more. They’ve spent a lot of time together and they’ve really bonded.”
Where the team comes together is on the soccer field. Natasha Guertler leads the team with 12 goals, and the players have hopes of reaching the postseason. The Heat competes in District 14-2A, against private schools such as Posnack, Coral Springs Christian and Sagemont.
The long-term goal, however, is continuing to build the program.
“We’ve already got a varsity and junior varsity team,” Bemis said. “We’ve got more than 40 girls on the teams. It’s just a matter of continuing to go in the right direction.”
