Under coach Steve Kollman, the girls’ soccer program at Richmond Hill High School hasn’t had to rebuild. The Lady Wildcats just keep reloading.
That’s the case again this spring. Richmond HIll is off to a 6-2-0 start and is 6-1 in Region 3-AAAAA. But it didn’t come without some early bumps.
"Getting rained out of two matches in February was tough for our girls as they tried to get used to each other," Kollman said. "As a whole, our first touches were not very good which meant we could not sustain possession in our attack. We also had to overcome losing players who were fighting the flu bug."
As a result, the Lady Wildcats fought to a 2-2 draw in an exhibition match against Savannah Arts Academy on Feb. 8, then lost 2-0 to Hilton Head High School in a nonregion contest and began March with a 2-1 loss to rival Glynn Academy in a match between Region 3-AAAAA’s top programs.
Enter Jenkins, another Region 3-AAAAA program. The Lady Wildcats blistered the Lady Warriors 10-0 on March 5 and haven’t lost, or been scored on, since.
