Soccer players earn All-State

The girls soccer squad wrapped up a perfect league season, made it to the state semifinals and to top it off had three players make All-state teams. Marley Holden was a first-team pick and Izzy Schiller and Katie Ryan were both second-team selections.

Holden, for the second consecutive year, led the Outlaws in both goals and assists, 21 and 11 respectively. She was a stellar midfielder who was the “engine” of the team.

Coach Brian Holden said, “I will miss Marley as a player and a captain. She has set a standard of how a midfield should be run. She has been a very unpredictable offensive player, both in her passing and shooting. She is a selfless distributor and was always reliable in the middle.”

Schiller recorded 14 shutouts and only allowed five goals to be scored against the Outlaws all season.

“Izzy ran our defense to perfection!” said Holden. “As a center back she was a communicator and led by example. I will miss her energy and leadership as a captain.”

Ryan finished the year with 19 goals and four assists for the Outlaws.

“Katie defined ... ‘hard work’,” said Holden. “She always arrived to practice with a smile and ready to better herself and team every day.”
