Girls soccer ready to kick off

(Continued)

Senior leadership will be important for the 2013 Hatchets as they try to take the next step toward winning a sectional championship, something they haven’t done since 2010 when Gretchen Miles was the coach. Bryant said he has seen one senior in particular take charge to lead the pack in open fields and preseason practice, and that’s goaltender Ally Hunsinger. Despite suffering an ankle injury during open fields, Bryant has been impressed by her leadership even from the sideline.

“She hurt her ankle and she’s going to be OK, but sometimes I might show an example on the field, and she’s over on the bench with her foot up and I don’t have to tell her anything and she hobbles over here so she can listen — that’s an example of what I have with the leaders,” Bryant said. “I’ve known Ally (Hunsinger) since she was a little girl and she’s always been a competitor, even as a little girl. It’s fantastic to have Ally. I’ve told her in her position, I need a leader there. She’s going to fit that role really nicely.”

The Hatchets have a tough road to start the season with three straight road games starting August 22 against Castle, Evansville Central and Evansville Memorial, before the Sept. 4 home opener against Evansville Mater Dei. Bryant said his expectations will stay small and focus on the details of each practice and game.

“For me, it really is just to get the best opportunity in every game that we have and then let the wins and losses fall wherever they may,” Bryant said.

Washington Catholic

The Cardinals enter the season with a nice mix of youth and experience as they try to expand on an 8-5-1 finish in 2012, which saw Washington Catholic fall to North Knox 2-0 in the first round of the Sullivan sectional. Cardinals head coach Kelly Neace thinks this season offers a nice opportunity to win now and build toward the future.
