Girls' soccer teams set goals for season


Helping the Orioles achieve their goals will be second team all-state players Cassidy Blacha and Madison Knock. Junior Kelsey Dossey, who tallied 10 shutouts in goal last year, has started since her freshman season and is a formidable presence in goal.

Blacha, a junior mid-fielder, and Dossey were also both members of the Hoosier Crossroads Conference first-team last season. Blacha has committed to play at Indiana University and Dossey has committed to the University of Missouri.

“Both players bring a couple of years of experience and are great leaders by example on the field,” Nance said.

The HCC should be the toughest girls’ soccer conference in the state as last season seven teams resided in the top 11 of the state rankings. Avon placed second in the HCC last year and hopes to improve this season.

“We love it because we get to play great competition each game,” Nance said. “Getting wins in the HCC is exciting because we know how difficult it is.”

Avon’s captains include four-year letter winner Sarah Zolcak, Knock, Blacha, and Dossey. Bringing senior leadership to the squad are Brooklynn Guerrettaz, Sierra Weyenberg, Emily Unison and Alex Kimes.

Other varsity returners include Hope Mueller, Hannah Klotzsche, Kayli Katterheinrich, Cassady Hibner, and Teagan Vonderheit. Junior varsity players moving to varsity this season are Aspen Weyenberg, Sarah Morgan, and Marissa McDowell.

“The goal for the season is to take it one game at a time and improve throughout the year,” Nance said. “The competition we play in the HCC, Zionsville Invite, (and) North Central Invite will have us battle tested. We hope to be healthy and prepared once state tournament comes around. Each season is different and it all depends on how well the girls can come together.”


The Cadets won their third consecutive West Central Conference title last season, and made school history by recording the most wins for the program and fielding the best sectional performance ever. Cascade finished 12-4-1, going undefeated in the WCC.
