Girls tie, win, and lose against top ranked teams


The CHS Girls Varsity Soccer Team had a busy weekend. They started it off with an away game against Evansville Memorial, where they met some skilled competition. The girls found themselves lagging behind their opponents at the beginning, but they trooped on. The final score was a 0-0 tie, but nonetheless, our prowess was on display. The CHS Girls team created three exceptional scoring opportunities, and Adie Schnieder successfully eliminated Evansville’s chances of scoring and taking home the win. Their weekend continued in a game versus Homestead High, where they met their most distinguished challengers. Our girls lost with a final score of 0-5; however, considering Homestead’s ranking as the third-best team in the state, and the fact that they have a player from the US Women’s reserve team, our girls came away with a positive attitude and learned plenty. To wrap up their long weekend, CHS came back strong in their final game. In their game against Fort Wayne Carroll (yet another skilled school), our girls played their hearts out. Junior Gina Geenen led the day with a goal in the first half, and Kaitlyn Kogl sealed Caroll’s fate with a second goal during the second half of the game. The final score was 2-1. This year holds a great deal of promise for our Varsity Girls Soccer team as the preseason Coaches Poll slotted them at #17.  Coverage for girls soccer will continue all season long, as they continue their season tonight (Tuesday 8/24) at home against the Michigan City Wolves.
