Girls' soccer teams set goals for season

Each county school set records, won titles and generally played a fantastic year of girls’ soccer on all fronts last season. Can the local teams do it again? It seems likely with a lot of the talent coming back with unfinished business on their minds.

Plainfield

Plainfield set a season record with 13 wins last year, finishing 13-3-3. More impressive was the Quakers’ output as they averaged 5.9 goals per contest thanks in part to several players with outstanding seasons.

Plainfield coach Kristen Sullivan believes her team should be able to continue where they left off this year.

“We did lose a talented senior class last year, but we have the core of our group returning this season,” she said.

Senior Allison Abbe scored a team-high 27 goals and contributed 14 assists last year and classmates Sophie Warren and Kassidy Edwards each contributed 14 goals.

Plainfield also returns seniors Anna Bruner, Ana Fernandez, Lena Charles, and Brittany Davis.

“This group brings a lot of talent, strong leadership and overall knowledge of the game,” Sullivan said of her seniors. “This group has had their eyes set on this season for a long time. They have developed into outstanding leaders as well.”

Abbe, Davis, Charles and Bruner will captain this year’s squad.

Sullivan said the Quakers would like to win the Mid-State Conference, — Plainfield took second last year — win all three games of the Hoosier Cup and make a deep run in the tournament.

“Our successes depend a lot upon this core group of upperclassmen setting team goals and putting in the time and effort to achieve them,” she said.

Helping the upperclassmen achieve those team goals are juniors Sarah Miller, Mea Wallace, Olivia Warren, Tessa Strube, Brittany Stewart, Katherine Bender and Angela Barnett along with sophomore Londyn Feasel and freshman Amber Blissmer.

Plainfield’s offensive threats include Abbe, Edwards, Warren, Davis and Feasel. Sullivan said to “look for (them) to frequently find the net for the Quakers this season.”
