Boudreau is the original and current coach of Danville
High School Women's Team.
did Danville High School form their first Girl's soccer
team? It was only 6 years ago. During the fall of 1996
I was hired to coach the first ever Girl's Soccer Team.

season started in March of 1997. We had 32 players on
our Junior Varsity and Varsity teams. Our schedule only
consisted of 10 games. Unfortunately, we scored no goals
and we ended our season 0-11. Despite our losing record,
it was a wonderful experience and the beginning of a
the seasons went by each year got better and better.
During the 1998 season we scored our first goal as a
team and won 2 games. Each year our team marks new records.
We have improved in all areas every season. We score
more goals, have more assists, more shutouts, and win
more games. Another way of measuring our team's improvement
each year is by comparing our playoff seed. In 1997
we were seeded at the very bottom and every year we
have improved by 2 or 3 spots. Last year was our best
ranking ever, and we almost made it past the first regional
game. We ended up losing to Normal Community 2-1 in
the final 15 seconds of the game.
Soccer in Danville has grown tremendously over the past
six years. More girls are participating in DSA and playing
on traveling teams. I have noticed more and more girls
coming to DHS with a lot more soccer experience, and
a lot more love for the game.
2002 Girl's Soccer Team will again try to post more
records and meet our goals. We are determined to be
seeded higher during playoffs, get past regionals, and
have a record better than 500. The girl's team has made
great strides in the past six years, I am anxious to
see where we will be in another six years.
