Girls Soccer

 

Private School Girls SoccerAfter serving as the middle school and junior varsity head coach, and varsity assistant in 2015-16, Andrew Sopher takes over the varsity Falcons and inherits a program filled with emerging young talent. Although they fell short of a district championship in an upset on a penalty kick in the closing minutes of last year’s semifinal, SSES posted another strong season and one upon which to build.


The Falcons lose first-team Sarasota Herald-Tribune All-Area honoree Lindsey Leskinen (team-high 20 goals in 2015-16), but appear poised to return to their regular winning ways behind skilled players such as juniors Katie Pierce, sophomore Kendall Miller (pictured), eighth grader Julianne Dunbar and others. SSES fielded a junior varsity program for the first time last season and that should pay dividends in the near future as a developmental stop for future varsity players.


A standard of success has already been established. The program has had just one losing season and captured nine district titles since 2000, including a string of five consecutive from 2008-12.


Those teams were led by a group of stars who went on to play collegiately. Goalkeeper Shannon Morrish was 76-23-5 in five seasons as a Falcon and was part of four straight district champions. She was the team MVP in 2010 and played in 16 games during her career at Vanderbilt. Morgan Fragapane starred for the Falcons as a forward and then appeared in 51 matches at Presbyterian College in South Carolina. Hannah Howell was the Bradenton Herald player of the year in 2013, scored 101 career goals at SSES – including 39 as a senior – and signed with Georgetown University.


The Falcons play their home games on the state-of-the-art field turf at the Moore Athletic Complex.
