Girls' soccer teams set goals for season

(Continued)

“Even as a new coach in this program, I am aware of the quality of last year’s senior class, and they surely will be missed,” Hall said. “However, there is a great deal of talent and leadership in this year’s senior class as well. They have been instrumental in bringing the team together during the preseason and maintaining the high level of commitment from all the players. They recognize how vital their role is to the success of the team overall.”

Hall said his soccer philosophy starts with the back line and feels the Bruins have a definite advantage there with seniors Brittany Kiefer and Lauren Mardis and junior Karen Jones.

Jones returns to her familiar spot as goalkeeper for the Bruins and has recorded 21 shutouts in two seasons.

“Having Karen back in goal is a great advantage because she is a talented goalkeeper as well as a great leader,” Hall said.

Mardis, Kiefer and Sydney Carlson will captain the Bruins, but Hall expects others to step up as well.

“We also have six additional seniors that demonstrate exemplary leadership skills,” he said. “During team voting, every senior received at least one vote, which means they all possess qualities that make them great leaders.”

Hayley Stroup and freshman Paige Newton are the Bruins’ main offensive weapons, but Abby Meyers and Corbin Badger will threaten from the wings.

Defensively, Mardis, Kiefer, Carlson and Alyssa Wente will anchor the back line along with Michelle Davis.

“Our goals this season are focused on balanced team play,” Hall said. “We have a great deal of potential and depth, provided that we play together and make team success our first priority. In regards to the postseason, it is always our goal to win sectionals and play our best soccer during the postseason run.”
