South Point recognizes senior soccer players
As a result of the spring sports season being cut short, the Athletic Department of South Point High would like to recognize the seniors on the spring sports teams. So, over the next seven weeks, there will be a series of articles highlighting these seniors.
We are proud of the accomplishments of all senior student athletes both on and off the field, court, track and golf course.
The first of these stories is about the ladies soccer team seniors: Mary Walker, Abby (Pickle) Morgan, Abby Long, and Riley Racz.
Head coach Kellie Patz says this- “I have had the pleasure of knowing these young ladies since their freshmen year. They have been excellent role models for their team as well as their classmates. The team voted for each senior to be a captain this year. Anyone who comes to a game or practice would see how strong the team bond is between all of the ladies, and it is solely because of these four. It was an honor to be their coach for the past four years and to see how much they have grown into fantastic young ladies. The team will not be the same without them next year, and they will be greatly missed. Mary was not only a great teammate, but a high scorer and play developer for our team. Pickle gave 110% each time she stepped out onto the field and still would find ways to make everyone laugh during a practice or a game. Abby was a great choice for a captain this year because of her knowledge at different positions and her constant help with younger players. Riley, whether she was injured or not, would always know how to get her team hyped up during a game! Congratulations Mary, Pickle, Abby and Riley!!! Thank you for everything you have done to make this team a team. We love you and will miss you!”
