CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- Wednesday's graduation marked the end for many of Monticello's seniors, except for those playing for the Mustangs' girls soccer team.
"They all asked me is it weird and I was like actually I'm actually a Mustang until Saturday because we keep playing, we don't stop," senior midfielder Cami Hoke said.
The Mustang seniors have a couple more days after helping Monticello to their first VHSL Class 3 Semifinal in program history. Friday's semifinal against last year's state runner-up Brentsville District marks a major improvement over where these seniors started four years ago.
"Seeing our trophies prove how hard we work and how much we really want it and being able to show that to the younger girls," senior midfielder Hannah Anderson said, "And then being able to show them this process and just watching everyone come out and see how much we've accomplished."
But the Mustangs are hoping this run keeps going and have no plans of slowing down.
"It's really exciting this is the furthest we've ever gone before and everyone is just putting it all in," senior defender Ellie Quick said, "We've come this far, so there's no reason to give up now, just got to push all the way through to the end."
The Mustangs take on Brentsville District Friday afternoon at 3 p.m.
