Girls' soccer teams set goals for season

(Continued)

Brownsburg

There will be a new coach walking up and down the sideline for Brownsburg this season as first-year coach Megan Osborn takes over for long-time coach Phil Slavens, who led the Bulldogs for 15 years.

Replacing a legend is never easy, but Osborn has the full support of everyone, including Slavens who said he “would have a hard time to find anyone better.”

To that end, Osborn is having fun and molding the Bulldogs in her image.

“Getting to know the players over the last couple of months has been an absolute blast,” she said. “The girls have come to understand my coaching personality is one of no excuses and all about hard work to gain results. Being dedicated to the team and program has to be a player’s core value. We are in this journey as one group.”

Brownsburg finished with a 5-10-4 but didn’t lose eight of their last nine games (four wins and four ties) while coming together for a sectional victory over county and conference rival Avon.

The Bulldogs wish to build upon those highlights and continue the level of play where they left off.

“We consistently had a high number of players at all preseason workouts,” Osborn said. “That lets me know two things — the older players are ready to capitalize on the highs from last season and the younger players are ready to become part of a traditionally successful soccer program.”

Leading the Bulldogs this season are captains Sophie McFarland, Taylor Risser and Sydne Dryer.

“(They are) three senior leaders who offer a mix of poise and pressure, (and) will be called upon daily for team dynamics needs,” Osborn said. “I am counting on these three incredible young women to provide a training environment where we cannot settle for mediocrity and where our younger players know the team code and honor is of utmost importance.”
