Varsity Soccer


OVERVIEW

The 2017 Varsity Soccer season returned to the ISL championship game with a chip on their shoulder following a heart breaker of a loss in 2016. Although the team fell short in another tough game, the journey to get to that point was filled with joyous moments, personal and team growth, and fond memories that will last a lifetime. Captains Rayne Layton ’18, Kate Gusek 18’, Gabby Ostoyich ’18, and Virginia Asher ’19 lead the team with grace and poise as the team took on a competitive ISL schedule.

After many battles, the team finished second in the ISL and earned home field advantage throughout the playoffs. Without a doubt, the highlight game of the season was the heart stopping, thrill seeking, and nail biting win over St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes. After a 0-0 game in regulation, the score remained scoreless as the two teams headed into penalty kicks. Rayne Layton ’18, Lauren Willingham ‘ 20, and Clare Flood '20 provided the goals and sophomore goalkeeper Kaley Katz ’20 was absolutely incredible in goal and denied two PK’s and watched a third penalty go wide of the goal.

The varsity soccer coaches are so proud of all the hard work and dedication the student-athletes gave to the program this year and the future looks incredibly bright. Thank you to all of the parents and fans for the wonderful support this season. Go Panthers!
