This was weather-challenged week, so many games were cancelled. Nonetheless, here are the finalists for GIRLS SOCCER Player of the Week for the week ending August 23 (Games Saturday through Friday).
Each week, the girls soccer coaches for the school’s we cover (11 schools) will nominate a player (or players) that they feel is worthy of the award. Some weeks we will pick from a list and narrow it down to three-to-six. This week, we are presenting all four of the players who were nominated.
Please use the ballot shown below. The winner will receive a plaque that will be presented at a practice or pre-game warm-up later this week. We will capture the presentation on video, and it will be posted on our website.
Here are the finalists:
Hannah Johnson, Cheatham County Central—the Lady Cubs freshman goalkeeper had 24 saves and one goal allowed in their game this week against Harpeth.
Madisen Hodges, Montgomery Central—The Lady Indians senior center-midfielder scored three goals in a weather-shortened win vs Waverly on Tuesday and scored MCHS’s only goal in a loss vs White House on Wednesday. “She continues to be the catalyst on both the offensive and defensive ends of the field,” says her coach Gary Gossett.
Mikira Claybrook, Kenwood—The Lady Knights senior left back “has been excellent…has fought hard to win balls, play feet, and shut down opponents’ chances,” says her coach Caitlyn Casey. Claybrook is a leader in changing the culture at Kenwood soccer, who was winless in three games this week.
Payton Clapsaddle, Rossview—The Lady Hawks senior keeper “has been aggressive and consistent in the net,” according to her coach, Connie Castleman. The Lady Hawks lost their only game this week, 5-2 to Gallatin.
