We had a great run this season and a better record than seen before. I’m also super proud of the unity we’ve had as a team. There’s never a moment when I don’t feel like I’m not just hanging out and having a good time with a group of friends,” said Wright.

After winning the district championship a third time, and the regional championship a second time, the girls soccer team will now head to state. 

The team has had a shutout postseason so far. The first game in the 24th District Tournament was against Whitefield and the Lady Chargers walked away with a 12-0 win. Then, they came out on top against Mercy with a final score of 8-0 to win the district championship. 

Seniors Chloe Holt, Emily McDonald, Tayler Mahoney and junior Bailey Chitwood were selected for the 24th District All-Tournament team.

In the regional tournament, they first faced district rival North Bullitt and won with a final score of 9-0. They then also beat Holy Cross with a score of 4-0. For the 6th Region Tournament championship, they beat Mercy 5-0. 

Seniors Emily Ezell, Sarah Ezell, Ryley Ortega and junior Emma Wright were selected for the 6th Region All-Tournament Team. Mahoney was also named the 6th Region Player of the Year after the Mercy game.

Tomorrow night at 5 p.m. at the Mt. Washington Sports Complex, the Lady Chargers will face Sacred Heart for the first round of the state tournament. Sacred Heart is currently ranked number one in the state, and your Lady Chargers are ranked 16. 

Junior Emma Wright said, “As for tomorrow, anything can happen in the state tournament. We are definitely the underdogs and they might be underestimating us a little bit so hopefully we will be able to use that to our advantage. If we start strong from the whistle, you never know what could happen. I’m positive of one thing though, we will be battling for the entire 80 minutes to stay in the game.”
