Middle School Girls’ Soccer Wins Conference
The Bolles middle school girls’ soccer team became Independent Middle School Conference Champions with a hard-fought win over St. Johns Country Day School in the tournament final. After finishing the regular season with a record of 11-0-3, the Bulldogs cruised to victory over Providence in the first game of the conference tournament. Jackie Schaefer ’17
set a team record for the most goals in a season during the game. St. Johns advanced to the title game with a three-overtime victory over Episcopal two nights earlier.
After a scoreless first half in the final, Bolles coach Gina Redding
settled her team during the break and Schaefer was finally able to cross with the ball and fire it into the corner for the Bulldogs’ first goal. Macy Crouch ’16
then blasted a shot over the keeper from 30-yards out and Schaefer finished up with a breakaway to make it 3-0. The efforts in the backfield of Crouch, Abigail Anderson ’16
, Molly Todd ’17
, and Taya Edwards ’17
kept the ball on the opponent’s side of midfield all season. Up front, Schaefer and her club teammate Leah Ferlin ’17
put on a show of speed and passing that was unmatched.
