Woodland Park High School’s (WPHS) Varsity Girls’ Soccer team has been incorporating a unique activity into their training program this season – line dancing! They have found that the footwork involved in line dancing complements their soccer skill sets.
The team has been enjoying the benefits of this activity, which adds variety, fun, and camaraderie to their group. They believe that every athlete needs the benefit of rest, recovery, and a mental shift as they train at competitive levels, and line dancing has been an enjoyable addition to their season!
In addition to their line dancing training, the WPHS Girls’ Soccer team has been achieving success on the field. On Thursday, April 13, the team won an impressive victory over Sand Creek with a final score of 7-0. Kara Wiley, Sophia Wiley, and Pyper Wedhoff each contributed one goal to the team’s impressive win, while Shea Waters and Missa Kleppe scored two goals each.
The team would like to thank Martha for generously donating her time to teach them this fun and surprisingly complex skill. For those interested in learning line dancing, Martha teaches classes from 6-7:30 PM every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday at the Crystola Roadhouse, with Wednesdays being beginner lessons.
The WPHS Girls’ Soccer team invites everyone to come see them perform some of their new “moves” on the field at their next home game on Saturday, April 22, against Pueblo Centennial.
