The Richmond Hill Middle School girls soccer team recently defeated the Ebenezer girls team 6-0 in the region championship game to win the region championship.
Several days prior, the girls also defeated South Effingham 5-0 to reach the championship finals. This RHMS girls went the entire season without having a goal scored against them. There are several returning players for next year’s team so the Wildcats hope to continue their dominating force in the region.
The past three years have been incredible for the young Wildcats. They have only had one goal scored against them and that was in the playoffs and their only defeat in the regular season was a shoot out loss to Ebenezer. In addition, every game had a score of 4-0 or greater and over 70 Lady Cat goals were scored over the season.
The team recently had their season-ending award banquet. Here is a list of the winners: Kaitlyn Martinson – Coaches Award, Lisa Barnes – Most Valuable Defensive Player, Baley Jackson –Most Valuable Midfield Player and Julia Marcotte – Leadership Award.
Amazingly enough, this title win marks the fourth region sports crown for RHMS this year. Earlier in the year, the football, girls basketball and boys soccer brought home the top prize in middle school sports. All of this should bode well for the corresponding high school programs.
