NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. – This season, the North Fort Myers women’s soccer team is not only rated as one of the best teams in the state but also in the country because the Red Knights are currently ranked in the top 10 nationally but they still have much more to achieve.
Step into the Moody Fields in North Fort Myers this winter and you might notice a peculiar energy source.

This season, the Red Knights have no reason to be unhappy. They were unbeaten in the first 12 matches and entered the top 10 nationwide.
“When I’m on the pitch I don’t feel like it but when I look down at the stats and everything, it’s great to see that our hard work is being recognized,” striker Michelle Horan said.
This is the highest national rating the program has ever received.
“You can’t really put it into perspective like there are so many teams in the country and somehow you know that we’re in the top five like that it’s unbelievable,” said Junior defender Ariana Restrepo. speak.
It’s an achievement to be proud of, but it’s not all there is to it this season.
Head coach Nick Erickson said: “I think it’s great that they’re being recognized in some way for the work they’ve put in and the players and the team they’ve built. that didn’t work out and won the State Championship”.
And that’s all that matters after taking a one-table lead over last year’s title.
“For sure this season we feel we have something to prove. We want to keep going beyond that you know and can make history,” said Restrepo.
The rankings are special but history for this team is the only recognition they want.
“I think the cap is to win the State Championship. I think that is realistic for this team,” said coach Erickson.
“I think the state championship. That’s the goal and that’s what we want to do and I think I’m confident we can do it,” Morgan said.
