The Midway College Women’s Soccer team is less than two weeks away from the start of the 2013 fall season. Coming off a 5-10-2 overall record that included a 4th place finish in the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (KIAC) in 2012, the Eagles are primed for a successful season ahead.
Midway will be led by a core group of juniors, a large group of sophomores and some impressive freshmen in Head Coach Trip Rogers fourth season at the helm of the program.
All Conference forward and last years leading goal-scorer Peyton Angel (Ludlow KY, Holy Cross HS) and 2nd Team All Conference midfielder Sara Fields (Versailles KY, Woodford County HS) lead a strong and experienced sophomore class. They are joined by standout defenders Lauren Birch (Lexington KY, Bryan Station HS) and Haleigh Olsson (Shelbyville KY, Shelbyville HS), midfielder Samantha Donahue (Elizabethtown KY, Central Hardin HS). Junior forward Lorna Mason (South Yorkshire, UK) and junior goalkeeper Katie Bailey (Pontefract, UK) look to have solid comeback seasons after missing large portions of the 2012 season due to injury.
A talented group of newcomers join the Eagles Program this fall. Setting the pace are Haley Ruggles (Portsmith OH, Shawnee State), Tori Tedesco (Cincinnati OH, Thomas Moore) followed by Lauren Schuster (Bardstown KY, Nelson County HS) Haley Ennis (Elizabethtown KY, Central Hardin HS) and Ashlee VanHooser (Lexington KY, Tates Creek HS).
This is an extremely important season for Midway Soccer as we have raised our expectations significantly and set lofty goals for the team. We have a great group of players that are both talented and experienced, and they will play a key roles in the future success of the program.
