KNOXVILLE — Through the ups and the downs of this season, the girls soccer team was able to go to the championship, which gave the team a great way to end the season.

“One of the most historic seasons we’ve had, which was not expected, we won the most amount of games in one season,” said girls soccer team coach Mason McNally.

This season the team reached the championship after defeating their rivals, KCU.

After losing their first game against them, the team was ecstatic to beat them with a score of 2-1 during the championship.

Both player Brooke Fowler and McNally said this was a highlight of the season.

There were also individual highlights that came out of this season.

Abby Barron, a freshman at Johnson University, was ranked in second place nationally for the most goals scored and third place for the most points per game.

“Even going through a severe case of shin splints… Abby, along with Laurie Morgan and Emily Robist, were given the all-regional award, which was a huge honor.”

Fowler and McNally agreed that one of the best highlights was the unity of the team. Their theme this season was “One team, one goal, one God. ”

“All of us made a commitment to do our best for each other, to edify each other, to be a family,” Fowler said.

McNally was please with the culture of this year’s team.

“My goal is to build a culture that athletes want to be a part of, and this season had that culture,” she said.

McNally reported there will be a Spring camp for those interested in joining the soccer team in March.

Pre-season training starts a week before move-in for Fall Semester in 2017.
