Alix Regier

Yukon High School

Soccer has become one of the more popular sports for the youth to play in America. That translates to players developing and becoming better players as they get into junior high and high school. This can be said for Yukon High School’s Alix Regier who started playing soccer at a very young age.

“I have played soccer since I was three years old, so 15 years. I am now a senior in high school,” said Regier.

This season Regier and her teammates are focused on one game at a time and making it to post-season play.

“The goal for this season is to win a state championship. My first two years of high school we lost in the quarter finals to the team that ended up winning the state championship. Last year we lost to Jenks in the semi-finals who also ended up winning it all. This year I am confident we can make it all the way to the championship, and I believe with our team we could beat any opponent when we play together,” said Regier.

It’s her teammates and how they play together as a group that makes Regier so confident.

“I love how much fun our team has together. Every one of my teammates always enjoys having a good laugh. Our team also has the drive to win, we are all extremely motivated and we give it our all every time we step on the field. We are always the underdogs, and our work ethic is what helps us win games,” said Regier.

But there is always room for improvement and Regier said she continues to work on her own game.

“The area of my game I have improved on most is probably my fitness. I have worked harder than ever in the weight room and on my running workouts to become a stronger and faster player. Fitness has such a huge effect on a player, and I feel I am ready for this high school season because of the work I have put in,” said Regier.

For Regier and the team, there is one opponent they look forward to playing this season.

“Our home field at YHS is definitely my favorite place to play. An opponent I’m excited to play is Norman North. A lot of my club soccer teammates go to school there, and they have been in the state championship all three years of my high school career. I think it will be a really good game, and I can’t wait to play them April 19th,” said Regier.

After graduation, Regier will take her talents to Kansas State University.

“After I graduate, I am attending Kansas State University to play soccer and major in Pre-Medicine. I couldn’t be more excited to attend this university and be a wildcat. The family atmosphere and the way this school treats their athletes is so incredible. After I finish my four years at K-State I plan on going to medical school to become a pediatrician. I hope to be a doctor and have a family of my own one day,” said Regier.
