The Nordhoff High School (NHS) girls’ soccer team has enjoyed one of  its best seasons in recent memory this winter. Despite missing all of their preseason games due to the Thomas Fire, the Lady Rangers are currently 11-3 overall and 10-2 in the Frontier League, which is good enough for first place and the 2018 Frontier League title. 
“Our girls have really come together this season. Having consistency in terms of coaches and players has really made a big difference for us,” said head coach Matt Wilson. “We have a good core group of players and they all get along and that has made a big difference in their play,” he added.
Nordhoff made the short trip to The Thacher School Feb. 3 and pulled off a clutch 2-1 victory to take control of the Frontier League standings.
