GIRLS SOCCER PLAYER OF THE WEEK, games through September 12
Brayden Suiter, Sycamore High School—The Junior goalkeeper for the Lady War Eagles had six saves in Sycamore’s 2-1 win over current state champs Beech. “She is confident and assertive in goal, and she has become a strong voice in the back of the field. She is always alert and focuses on the ball in relation to the goal, even if it is at the other end of the field,” her coach Sheila Gaertner said.
Dahli Auguste, West Creek High School–In West Creek’s 9-0 win over Kenwood, the freshman midfielder registered two goals and two assists. In a tournament game over the weekend against Antioch, she tallied the game-winning goal in a 2-1 win. “She is a consistent threat to score from distance, and her growth throughout the season is promising for our program,” her coach Drew Smith said.
Jade Irwin, Rossview High School—The senior “has been jack of all trades for us so far this season, playing just about every position on the field. She ticks all the boxes- she’s strong, athletic, fast and aggressive. This week she was a vital part of our defensive game but also racked up a goal in our win vs. MCHS,” her coach Connie Castleman said.
Emma Woodall, Cheatham County Central High School—The senior defensive specialist was a huge part in controlling the Lady Cubs’ defensive line on Tuesday vs. district opponent Fairview in a 3-1 win. The Cheatham defense allowed one goal in 21 shots on goal. Woodall had 10 blocks herself. “She was able to transition the ball multiple times into an offensive attack herself or feeding the ball to the midfield,” her coach Susie Kephart said.
