Lady Trojans make leader board
The girls soccer program continues to make their mark across the state even after the season is over. According to varvee.com, the states statistical website, several of the Trojan soccer players rank in the top 20 in the state. Freshmen forward Courtney Denny ranked 11th in scoring with 28 goals. She was one goal shy of breaking in to the top ten in this category. Courtney did manage to break in to the top ten in total points scored in a season by placing 9th. Total points is a category comprised of the number of goals scored and assists made during the seaon. Another Trojan making her mark on the leader board was senior Emily Smith. Emily was 5th in the state in assists and 9th in shots taken. Denny and Smith provided a one-two punch on the offensive end of the field which allowed the Trojans to be successful. On the defensive end of the field, Sara Leyes cracked the top 20 in saves with 184 on the season. The other defensive stat kept by the state is a goalies record which ultimately is a total team record. The Trojans finished 17-3-0 this year and Leyes gets credit for a 9th place rank in the state in that category. Over all the Trojans accomplished several of their goals this season. They ran the table in the North Central Conference to capture their first conference title in school history. The Trojans compiled two additional wins during the sectional as they took home the championship trophy. The team capped off their season by winning their first regional game to advance to the sweet sixteen. Coach Tillett was quick to point out that "it is nice to have our team and players get extra attention, but our entire roster contributed to all of our success this season. Our program has grown over the past 5 years and it is a tribute to every player who has come through the program".
Congratulations to the coaches and players who have helped in the success of the Lady Trojan soccer program.
