Just three days remain until the official start of practices for Iowa high school girls soccer teams.
As has been the case in the past, those girls from now ACGC schools who wish to play soccer will be involved through an athletic sharing agreement, joining Nodaway Valley and West Central Valley schools. Last season the three school team came together to become one of the toughest teams in class 1A ending their season with a 13-3 record and the 10th best ranking in the entire class.
This season, the Lady Chargers involved will be a part of a team that is on the lookout to replace a good chunk of talent that ranked them sixth in class 1A in total shots on the season. The Lady Wolverines will have to replace the team leading 29 goals and 65 points from Hailey Gross last season along with a team leading 15 assists by Abby Miller. They do retain the skill of ACGC’s very own Josi Ocheltree who was second on the team in scoring while also retaining the skills at goal keeper fellow Guthrie County athlete Bailey Burris who accumulated 54 saves last season.
The list of Lady Chargers involved in soccer this season include Joelle Grubbs, Logan Jensen, Josi Ocheltree, and Maggie Vogl.
The Lady Wolverines will kick off practice on March 20th with the first match coming at home on April 3rd against Missouri Valley.
