Fox Chapel girls soccer eyes successful season
TribLIVE Sports Videos
The Fox Chapel Area High School girls soccer team had a 16-2 record overall and went 10-2 in the section last season.
Coach Erik Duffy is looking for another great campaign and hopes the Foxes can make some inroads in the playoffs.
“We lost two senior starters but we have eight returning starters and four of them were all-section performers last year,” Duffy said. “One of our areas of concern is replacing the great scoring ability of Jessie Thiessen.”
The Foxes will return seniors Sarah Friedland (defender), Janelle DeBaldo (defender), Theresa Scheiffarth (defender) and Lauren Kelly (midfield).
Kelly was chosen to the All-WPIAL team last year.
Joining them will be returning starters Genna Kasian, a junior defender, and sophomores Elayna Burdelski (goalkeeper), Alexis Schwartz (defender), and Taylor Cohen (midfielder).
“We will be solid defensively,” Duffy said. “We've got a lot of experience and leadership.
“There are a lot of strong teams in the section and we should be in the playoff battle again.”
