With a week to go before the state soccer playoffs, the Richmond Hill High School soccer teams find themselves in familiar territory.
That's on top of Region 3-AAA.
Both teams clinched region titles last week, the third in a row for the boys and the second straight for the Lady Wildcats, who finished 10-0 in the region and 14-3 overall.
"Our young team has now accomplished the first goal we set at the beginning of the year, to win back to back region titles and go undefeated doing it," said Lady Wildcats coach Steve Kollman.
The Lady Wildcats, who fell 4-2 on Wednesday to No. 8 ranked Glynn Academy, a Class AAAA power, now play host to Troup High on Friday at 5 p.m. in the first round of the state playoffs.
Kollman has high expectations for the 2010 Lady Wildcats.
"When this group of girls puts all the miscellaneous stuff that happens in their day aside, and they come together and focus on being a fast, smart, physical soccer team; these girls can go all the way to the state finals," he said.
Lindsey Vasher and Sarah Goolsby lead the Lady Wildcats attack. Vasher has 30 goals and 21 assists while Goolsby has 26 goals and 11 assists.
Keeper Gabby Parker, a has played in all but three games for Richmond Hill. Parker has eight shutouts and 43 saves.
The Wildcats fell 4-0 to Glynn Academy to wrap up the regular season 11-5 overall. The Red Terrors finished 16-1-1 and are ranked No. 10 in Class A.
The Wildcats play host to Northside Columbus at 5 p.m. April 29. See more next week.
