TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) - When it comes to soccer, Chiles senior Abbie Davis is a seasoned vet.

"It's kind of bittersweet," she said of her final season as a Timberwolf. "I've loved playing for this program all four years."

Bittersweet, but Davis and the Timberwolves are looking to end on a sweet note. Since her freshman year, this team has been knocked out in the District Tournament.

"We do have that chemistry that we established last year and then all we did was build on it this year," she said. "We do feel like we have that extra momentum push because we're so comfortable with each other."

"Once they're all out on the field it's like hey, we have to have each other's backs," said assistant coach Isabella Dewell. "It helps they're such good friends off the field. That team chemistry just on the field and off the field, it's very helpful."

On the field or off the field, chemistry not a problem for Davis. She balances a 4.47 GPA.

"I think all the girls look up to her and I think because she exceeds in the classroom and out here on the soccer field," said Dewell. "She puts 100% into everything."

"For me being busy is how I stay productive and how I stay on top of things," added Davis. "I think I'm a better student during soccer season because I know I have that limited time to get everything done. I'm much more productive, so I get things done more efficiently."

Getting things done in the classroom, and if she has it her way, on the field. Davis is looking to make this season one to remember.

"There's still so much more I can get too," she said. "It's crazy to think one day I was this little freshman, now here I am!"

Hopefully that seasoned vet will be playing at Chiles for just a little longer.
