Women’s Soccer Back and Better Than Ever
After doing something incredibly special and making the tournament for the first time in Beloit College’s history, the Women’s Soccer team maybe could take their foot off the gas. After losing your coach after that took you there, maybe you feel sorry for yourself and take the foot off the gas.
These ladies however have not. Under first year head coach Lisa Collogan the Women’s Soccer team has continued their success starting off the year with a 2-1 record. If that is not impressive enough the team has not allowed a goal yet this season.
A lot of credit goes to Beloit’s unrelenting defense. The way they play the game is with such tenacity it sets a precedent. A lot of the credit though goes to the goal keepers themselves.
Audrey Ketter has made the most headlines as Beloit’s Goalkeeper. She was named 2nd team all conference last season and she didn’t stop there. She already was named to the Midwest Confernce’s defense performer of the week this season.
Beloit also brings back two more all conference performers in Lauryn Volza and Sydney Ortiz. With the way the team has been playing already this season that list is set to grow this season.
They opened up the season at home against Marion on September first and beat them one to nil. The lone goal in that game was scored by previously mentioned Lauryn Volza. Her first as a Buccaneer.
The Second game of the season was played against the very gritty Wisconsin Lutheran College at their place and handled them. The Buccaneers won the game pretty handily four to nothing.
Two girls each had two goals. Potenional all conference player Mikalia Davis had two goals. Each was assisted by Abigail Membrino. Sydney Ortiz, the only first teamer from a year ago, had two as well. The first one assisted on by Abbey Scott, while the second was from Dakota Thompson.
The team marched on to take on Cartage on September 7th and fought them to a nothing, nothing final score. Not the result they wanted but taking into consideration that Carthage beat them in the 2021 season three to one it shows the greatest thing in sports. Improvement.
With such a young team and bringing back a lot of great players, the Buccaneers looked primed to fight for the Midwest Conference once again.
