First year coach Jason Conway isn’t worried about the nerves.

“There are always nerves that go with the first game of the season, especially in your first game as head coach,” Conway said. “I’ve learned a lot over the years from working with (CHS Head Boys Soccer Coach) Jamie Sensibaugh on how to get ready for the season.

“The girls have worked hard in practice and we’re excited to get out on the field and put it all together.”

The Trojans open the 2014 season on Tuesday when they travel to Michigan City.

“There was a lot of graduation from last year, but there are a lot of kids back with experience out on the field,” Conway said. “I expect a seamless transition and know those kids can step on the field and fill those spots.”

Conway can count on returning goalkeeper Anne Marie Radzik to help lead the way.

“Anne Marie Radzik as a keeper is a big help,” Conway said. “She has to be demanding and vocal and run the entire field.”

Radzik will get help immediately in front of her from Tia Peters, while the duo of Kaylee Lindahl and Desiree Bell will be counted on up front to score goals.

“Tia Peters will be in the defensive third as well,” Conway said. “Up top, with Kaylee Lindahl and Desiree Bell providing offense, we should be pretty solid.”

The Trojans should also get help from the healthy return of Molly Wilson and Kayla Schneider.

“Molly Wilson didn’t play a lot last year because of injuries, but I expect her to be very productive for us,” Conway said. “Kayla Schneider is in a similar position and she’ll have a chance to help us on the field as well.”

Chesterton opens its home portion of the schedule on Saturday, Aug. 30 against Kokomo.

“Reaching our full potential is what I’m striving for,” Conway said. “I don’t know where that leaves us overall, but every team has the goals of winning the DAC and a Sectional.”
