Sophomore midfielder no. 11 Cambry Patrick dribbles the ball. The Leopards play their next district game at home Friday night.

Despite the game’s early end from inclement weather, the girls soccer team pulled off a 5-0 win against Denison on Monday. The team now holds a 17-2-1 record, tying the team’s 2011 record of 17-1-7 for most wins. 

“As a team, we have had better games, but at the end of the game we came out strong with the win, even though it ended early and had lightning delays,” senior outside forward Avery Templin said. “Individually, I had a consistent game and was able to connect and play with my teammates in the wing position the whole game.”

Freshman center mid Emma Nelson led the team with three goals, completing her hat-trick. Senior center back Amiya Callicut, scored a goal while playing forward in the game. Junior center back Natalia Duran De La Vega also scored a goal. 

“The most exciting part of the game was when Emma Nelson got her third goal of her hat-trick,” junior center back Mary Mueth said. “I thought that Emma Nelson played extremely well, not only because she got a hat-trick, but because she always tries her hardest.”

Juniors left forward Callan Snider and center Emma Smith assisted in the goals, along with freshman center forward Mia Reaugh with two assists. Sophomore keeper Nicole Young, who played forward in last night’s game, also assisted. 

“The mindset was really just to play our game: to play hard with intensity, to play smart, and to play together,” coach Ian Keeble said. “We just need to get back into the groove of things after taking some time off over spring break.”

The team, ranked No. 2, will play Rock Hill, ranked No. 1, on Friday at home. Rock Hill beat the team in February, 4-1 and currently holds a 19-0-1 record. The team will play Frisco Reedy in the first round of playoffs. 

“Next game, we will definitely be picking up our intensity as we play our biggest competition, Rock Hill, in our last game of the season,” Templin said. “We are also preparing for playoffs coming up next week, so we are working hard.”

About the Contributors
Lindsey Hughes, Editor-In-Chief
Third time’s a charm, right? Well, let’s hope so because the 2021-2022 school year is the third and final year for senior Lindsey Hughes on TRL. With the inevitable senioritis already in action, Hughes hopes to skillfully perform the duties of Editor-In-Chief and keep this multi-award winning publication at its high standard. On the off chance that she isn’t in the newsroom, you could probably find Hughes playing games with her PAL, hanging in Eairheart’s room or working at Jamba. Hughes is a part of NHS and works as vice-president of COOL club. While she won’t admit it, Hughes loves the thrill of UIL journalism competitions, but her love for writing doesn’t stop there. She is working to hold a creative writing camp in hopes of sharing her love and passion with kiddos. Hughes will stop at nothing to put a smile on others’ face, whether it be through hand written letters or more popularly, brownies on “brownie friday.” With only one more year to enjoy high school, Hughes plans to make the most of it with her friends and family by her side.
Olivia Lauter, Section Editor
Heading into her fourth and final year in TRL, senior Olivia Lauter could not be more thrilled to soak up every last minute of shooting sports, events and portraits for her favorite publication. Lauter has spent every day of her high school career with a camera around her neck, and you won’t catch her without it until graduation day. As well as being the photo editor for TRL, Lauter is a varsity cheerleader and involved in PALS and NHS. When she’s not on the sidelines with her camera or cheering on the Leopards, Lauter is with her friends, who she adores more than life itself. You will probably hear “last time, best time” and how “bittersweet” senior year is continually from Lauter this year, but she is just excited to spend one more year doing what she loves alongside the people she loves on TRL.
