The Skyline girls’ soccer team has plenty of things to build on as they kick their way into the start of the 2018 season. On their side of the field, the Eagles have plenty of talent, big-game experience, an outstanding coach and determination to be the best.
It all should add up to another successful year for Skyline soccer.
The Eagles landed at 10-3-4 last year and in second place in the SEC before falling to Saline in a District semifinal game.
The goal for this year is simple – it’s something like one play, one half, one game at a time.
“This team has agreed that we just need to get better every day,” says Coach Chris Morgan. “If we practice with game-like intensity we will have a strong season.”
Morgan, who has been the Eagles coach since the school opened, says the key to success this year is “finishing.” They want to finish a run with a goal, finish a game with a win, finish the season with a league title and so on…
To help accomplish this are returning seniors Kai Ketola (midfield), Angie Knight (midfield), Megan Marsh (defense) and junior Madison Marsh (defense) just to name a few players back from last season’s team.
Top new players include freshman midfielder Tai Tworek and junior keeper Maddy Sackman.
“We have solid senior leadership, and a very sound group of girls technically,” Morgan says.
