Girls Soccer COE Captures Great Lakes Conference Title
  • Athletics

For the first time in program history, the Shattuck-St. Mary’s Girls Soccer Center of Excellence won the Great Lakes Conference championship, going undefeated in league play with a perfect 8-0 record this spring. The Sabres outscored their opponents 38-9 en route to the title.

The win qualifies SSM for the National League P.R.O. next season as well as inclusion in Elite 64 Showcases.

The Great Lakes Conference is one of 13 conferences in the National League of United States Youth Soccer. It is comprised of teams from Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.

The Sabres capped off the season with a 30-9-1 overall record and finished the year with an 11-game winning streak. Senior Mia Bosch led the team in goals (64), assists (42), and points (106).

Head Coach Darian Powell ’12 summarized what the win meant for the team. “Winning the conference really encompasses all the work we put in throughout the year. We started in August with seven new players, worked tirelessly learning new formations, and players playing new positions. We had a team-first attitude, which is why we had success. This team deserved everything they got this year, and there’s no better feeling than going out on top.”

Athletic Director Michele Cornish echoed Coach Powell’s sentiments. “Our girls had a great soccer season. Their commitment to development and improvement every day definitely paid dividends over the course of the year. They held their own at major showcase events against some of the top teams in the country, and finished strong by going 8-0 in their spring league. They scored a hefty 169 goals this year which is reflected brightly in their winning record. I’m so proud of these young women and all that they accomplished this year!”
