Girls Soccer Watch

Woodward Academy’s girls soccer team featured just three seniors this season, but the Lady War Eagles continued to be a force in AAAA.

Seniors Izzy Romero, Natasha Copper, and Kinnera Nayudu helped the girls team go 6-0 in region play en route to capturing the region championship and advancing to the AAAA state playoffs.  The Lady War Eagles defeated West Laurens in round one of the state playoffs before falling to Jefferson in the 2nd round.

Sophomore Kayla Stadeker led the team in goals scored while junior Molly Ross was voted team MVP.  In addition, Megan Garrison, Maddy Cronin, Romero, and Stadeker were named first team All-Region while Jenna Codner and Ross were named second team All-Region.  With multiple starters returning next year, the Lady War Eagles should once again be competitive in 2018.
