Generals in the Spotlight:Clemmons and Hunter

May 22, 2017 by

Graduating Senior Captain and Defender, Katie Clemmons is from Phoenix Arizona. Katie played for SC DEL SOL before joining the Generals. Katie competed in 67 career games, starting in 61 of them as a part of the backline. As a Defender, Katie is a very dedicated player who put in countless hours outside of practice to become a better player. Katie’s leadership and voice on and off the field will be greatly missed next season.

Rising Senior, Olivia Hunter is from Tallahassee, Florida. Olivia played club soccer for Lake Norman Soccer Club. Olivia has played in 49 collegiate games, starting in 27 of them. Olivia’s primary position is defender but will at times play in the forward position. Olivia is a hardworking individual who gives it her all day in and out. I predict 2017 to be Liv’s best to date.

May 19, 2017 by

The Generals in the spotlight today are rising Senior, Becca Morris and rising Junior Sydney Abrisz. Both ladies are currently studying abroad.

Rising Senior, Rebecca “Becca” Morris is from Nashville, Tennessee. Becca played with Tennessee Soccer Club before coming to Washington and Lee. As a forward, Becca has played in 31 games for the Generals, recording five goals and five assists. Becca is a leader on and off the field and was selected to be a Captain for the upcoming season.  Becca’s hard work and speed will be valuable attributes for the team as we look to repeat as champions.

Rising junior midfielder, Sydney Abrisz, is from Chesterfield, Virginia and the highly competitive Richmond Kickers Club.  Sydney is very creative and smooth with the ball at her feet and has made tremendous strides in the off-season to improve.

Generals in the Spotlight

May 17, 2017 by

Senior Captain and center back, Hollis Tardy from Dallas Texas played in 70 games, starting in 58 during the course of her four years at Washington and Lee. Hollis recorded 9 goals and 1 assist for a total of 19 points. In Hollis’ four year career, she played all across the back and also in central midfield. Hollis’ leadership, poise and competitiveness in the center of our defense will be a great loss next year.

Chandler Wickers is a junior forward from Portola Valley, California. Wickers played with MVLA before coming to to W&L. Chandler has played in 52 games, starting in 35. She is equally at home as a forward and also in central midfield. Chandler will be a senior this year and is looking to repeat the success the team had this past season.

Generals in the Spotlight: Kristen Castle and Caroline Peters

April 4, 2017 by

Junior Caroline Peters played in all twenty games for the Generals, starting in eighteen of those contests. “Peters” registered five goals and seven assists, finishing third on the team in points with seventeen. Peters is a versatile forward and a difficult matchup for opponents with her speed and ability to take players on down the wing. Caroline has an exemplary work ethic and is an exceptional teammate and role model.

Kristen Castle, a first year, is an outside back from Gambrills, Maryland. Kristen can play on both flanks and has become an extremely versatile back for the Generals. She registered her first collegiate point in the win versus Hollins on October 5th.  “Castle” is a strong defender, tackles hard and has great recovery speed. We anticipate Kristen to build on her progress from last season and go on to have an excellent soccer career.

Generals in the Spotlight: Two Southerners

March 31, 2017 by

The Generals in the Spotlight are two First-years, Laney Smith and Caroline Bailey.

Laney played in fifteen games for the Generals as a first-year, making the move from defender to a central midfield position. Laney is a tenacious player and loves to go hard into tackles. With a very competitive mentality, we expect Laney to battle hard on the field and have a breakout season in the fall of 2017.

Caroline Bailey is a forward from Decatur, GA that can play in the middle or out on the wing. She registered her first collegiate point in the win versus Hollins on October 5th with a great cross into the box. “Bailey” can strike a ball well with both feet and is working hard at her game to be a more complete college forward for the 2017 season. We are anticipating Caroline working hard over the summer to be ready for an excellent sophomore campaign.

The Generals in the Spotlight are two First-years, Kit Hamill and Caroline Coppinger.

Kit played in seven games for the Generals as a first year, making the move from defender to a central holding midfield position. Kit reads the game well, is a neat passer of the ball and we anticipate a solid spring season, so that she may establish herself in the Generals midfield for 2017.

Caroline (Coppy) played in all 20 games for the team as a first year from IMG Academy. Caroline played in central midfield and put her athleticism, grit and determination to good use for the team this year. We are expecting Coppy to continue to compete for spots in central midfield and become an excellent player for the Generals in 2017 when she adds a couple of key components to her overall game.
