For Yomira Arrese, it's all about the intensity of the game.

"You've got to be on your toes at all times," said the 18-year-old senior who plays center midfield for the South Walton Seahawks girl's soccer team.

"You are always on the go and you have to think about your next move before you get the ball," said Yomira, who leads the team with 29 goals following last weeks District 2-1 win over Pensacola Catholic.

As a matter of fact, Yomira booted in the first goal in the first 10 minutes against Catholic.

"It felt pretty great," she said. "I knew I had to go off on it." 

Earlier in the season, South Walton lost 3-1 to Catholic and then tied with them at 1-1 during another game.

Yomira loves playing at center midfield and all that it entails.
