Girls' soccer teams set goals for season

(Continued)

Leading the defensive charge for Plainfield are Charles, Bruner, and Barnett, all of which return to the back line for the Quakers.

Two things Sullivan said are important to the success of Plainfield are staying injury free and getting the new varsity comfortable to the Quakers’ style and system of play.

Danville

Danville welcomes new coach Robert Dowhen to the squad this season. Dowhen comes to Danville after coaching six seasons of men’s varsity soccer in northwest Indiana and wasted no time leaving his footprint on the Warriors’ program.

“I am very excited to coach in Hendricks County,” Dowhen said. “Athletic and academic excellence is seen clearly in central Indiana. Although many of our program goals, mindsets, routines, conditioning, and direction have changed, we plan to represent the Danville Warrior brand of athletics with integrity and pride as it always has been.”

Dowhen set high expectations for the program and has a great starting point from which to build as the Warriors set a school record for wins last season with 13.

“Last year’s Warriors team has set the pace of where this program needs to continually be,” Dowhen said. “Wins and losses will come, but true growth and advancement is on the agenda. Their school record of 13 wins is a great thing for Danville… but the plan is to get to a new record each year. New records could include season wins, students participating in collegiate soccer, the amount of girls in the program, and sectional tournament progression.”

Helping Dowhen achieve his goals is offensive standout and reigning team MVP Stephanie Burdsall. The junior scored 28 goals last season and was selected to the first-team Sagamore Conference squad.

Burdsall, along with senior Emily Cloncs and sophomore Kylie Barnhart have been selected as team captains this season. Cloncs and Barnhart were both second-team all-conference players a year ago.
