Lady Outlaws excited for soccer season

The Lady Outlaws have 18 players on their roster this year and the girls are excited about the season ahead.

Emilie Turpen returns as the lone senior on the squad. She’s a hardworking, dedicated, veteran player who will lend leadership to the team and keep them together as a cohesive unit.

The Outlaws bring back a very organized defense, including Oly Thorson, Faith Gulick, Analise Backus, Sage Wyland, and freshman Maggie Lutz.

Coach Brian Holden told The Nugget that the defense has speed on the outside, as well as intelligence and distribution from the middle.

Freshmen Isabelle Schiller and Marley Holden will play at the center midfield position. The duo work well together and even though they are freshmen, they bring experience to the team.

Turpen, Emma Lutz, Maddie Symonds, Reese Harrell, Tatem Cramer, Katie Ryan, and Lindsay Scott will all play at outside midfield. These girls bring speed and fitness to the squad.

Anya Shockley and Hollie Lewis will play at forward, and at times Thorson will play that position as well.

Holden said, “These girls bring a tremendous amount of speed and they play well with each other. They are on track to score more goals than any other team I’ve seen from Sisters.”

Rounding out the squad is Josie Patton, the Outlaws’ keeper.

Holden said, “Josie is a leader out of the back with communication. She has strong hands and is a determined athlete who strives to improve each game.”
