Soccer Team Celebrates With Team Banquet (11/19/16)
(By Coach Chris Schonbachler)
The Clarion Area Lady Cat soccer team celebrated another successful season at their Annual Banquet on Tuesday, November 8th.
The Clarion Soccer Booster Club, headed by Rose Weaver, did another great job of organizing all of the evening’s festivities for the team.
The coaching staff recognized the players named to the UAVSL All-Conference team for 2016 and also handed out several awards for individual efforts throughout the season.
The 2016 season required a full team effort from the girls, all 14 players on the roster made contributions to our success at various times during the season and all earned varsity letters for their efforts.
I would like to thank my Volunteer Assistant, Ashley Montgomery, in her first season with the program. I’d also like to once again the Clarion Area Athletic and Maintenance Departments for their support this season. Thanks also to the Clarion Soccer Boosters, parents, and fans who supported the team this year.
Last, but certainly not least, to the outgoing seniors, Courtney Schonbachler, Forest Mills, Hannah Phillips, and Jenna Omecinski. It has been a pleasure coaching you for the last three seasons, and for some, since you were in kindergarten! Your leadership throughout the season was outstanding, and will not be easily replaced. On behalf of the team, good luck in all you do going forward. If you apply the same effort and determination in life as you have in soccer, success will find you!
