Conference Champions!

The Lady Mustang Soccer Team at Merriwether Middle School finished their season as conference champions! 
The Lady Mustangs dominated Lakeland’s Middle School Conference. They ended their season with a record of 10-0. Through the course of the season, the ladies managed to only have three goals scored against them. 
Captains Analiese Bell (goalie) and Riley Schlachter (stopper) led the team. Bell stayed strong in the goal by defending what came her way, while Schlachter controlled the center of play on the field. Lauren Strock, Makenzie Tullis, and Brecken Abney joined Bell and Shlachter on defense. Schlachter’s knowledge of the game and ability to see the field helped the Lady Mustangs in the forward attack on their opponents. Kaylee Tomago (center mid-fielder) was instrumental in pairing with Schlachter to control the center of the field. Tomago’s killer throw ins helped move the ball forward. Joining Tomago in the mid-field were J’Myah Brannon and Elaina Clarke. The Mustangs were able to capitalize on their precise ball movement up the field by putting over 60 balls in the net. The leading scorers for the Mustangs were Kiersten Thatcher, Azelinn Hall, Natalie Feyan, and Riley Schlachter. Also attacking for the Mustangs were Janet Rodas and Layla Williams. 
“I am so proud of these young ladies and the hard work they put in on the field. I am saddened to see my eighth graders go, but I am excited for the new journeys that lay ahead for them,” shared Coach Melissa Melick.
Congratulations to the Lady Mustang Soccer Team!
