Notable: Chelsey Haney scored a career-high five goals in Hopewell's 6-3 victory over Blackhawk on Monday. Haney also scored a goal in a 3-1 loss to Center on Sept. 7, and she had two goals in a 4-1 victory over Butler on Saturday.
"It was big," Haney said of the start to her season. "(The first few games) went good. I was getting good passes and a couple breakaways."
Haney, who scored Hopewell's lone goal in a 1-1 tie against Montour on Monday, has 11 goals on the season.
Have you selected a college yet?
I'm going to Youngstown State. I (verbally) committed two weeks ago.
What stood out about Youngstown State from the other schools you considered?
They offered me money (partial scholarship). I chose them over Maryland and Robert Morris.
Has the coaching staff given you any idea as to what your role will be as a freshman?
The coach said I will play outfield-mid to start and push up to forward. He said it looks like I could start, yeah, and I can work my way up to the top.
Who has been your biggest role model?
My parents, because they took me to all my tournaments to make me reach where I'm at. I was on a Cup team so they had to take me to all my tournaments and practices.
What is one thing people may not know about me?
I used to be a cheerleader.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
