2016 Lady Wildcats Qualify for State Playoffs!

The Lady Wildcat Soccer Team qualified for the State Playoffs this season for the first time in school history. After completing the year with a 8-11-1 record, the team received the 32nd seed in the West and had the privilege of playing the top seeded Weddington Warriors on May 10th. Weddington boasts 6 players who are heading to Division 1 soccer programs. so the team got to see top quality soccer close-up! A 9-0 loss did not discourage the Wildcats as we considered getting into the play-offs are top goal this season and know what we need to do to improve. Weddington will be in the running to win the State Championship as they are one of the better teams in NC, we have nothing to be ashamed of and will continue to build upon our successes.

Thank you Seniors!

Our Senior Night was held on April 28th marking the last home game for our 5 seniors, from left to right: Jennifer Lopez, Morgan Wilson, Erin Edwards, Sydney Edwards and Sarah Prince. These players were all an integral part of reshaping the soccer program and helping us to reach our goal of qualifying for the playoffs this season. Their leadership, dedication and competitiveness will be greatly missed. It has been a pleasure to have them on the team and to have watch them grow as soccer players and young ladies. We wish them success in all their future endeavors and we are honored to have had them as a part of the soccer program here at North Gaston.
