It was fitting that on Senior Night, the Wilmington High School girls soccer senior class set the school record for wins in a career with a 6-1 victory over Miami Trace at Alumni Field.
The seniors — Drezden Beam, Caylee Collins, Cheyann McKee, Jen Cochran, Lauren Johns, Gethsemane Bray, Megan Borton, Alyssa Lewis, Bryah Arehart, Erin Cornwell — have accumulated 40 wins in their WHS careers, coach Kerry Lewis said.
“We couldn’t be more pleased with this group of seniors,” said Lewis. “They’ve been great role models for their teammates. They’ve demonstrated great work ethic, effort and passion for the game. They play hard and physical, yet display excellent sportsmanship. These young ladies have represented WHS with class and dignity.”
For the current season, WHS is 10-4-2.
Beam started the scoring in the 7th minute with an assist to classmate Cochran. Savannah Morgan came right back in the 8th minute with an unassisted goal off a corner kick.
After Trace made it 2-1, Arehart, Beam and Morgan tallied three unanswered goals all off corner kicks for the Hurricane. Beam assisted on Morgan’s goal.
“Corner Kicks continue to be a strength for our soccer team,” Lewis said. “The girls played excellent combination and two-touch soccer tonight. They played with speed and poise. Their passing was crisp and decision making was strong.”
Borton tallied the final goal with Katlyn Jamiel and Jordan Snarr recording assists.
Coach Lewis said Cami Barton “had another solid performance in the midfield. Cami keeps improving and she gets better every week. Cami wasn’t credited with an assist on our 5th goal in the 53rd minute, but she was directly responsible for earning the corner kick and Cami also played a significant role in converting the goal.”
