Trinity are the powerhouse of San Antonio College Soccer, and that is also true of their women, coming off their fifth conference title, with a perfect 10-0-0 record, it’s all about reaching the next level for the Tigers women.
2010 saw the Tigers reach the NCAA Division III postseason tournament for the sixth time in the past seven years losing in the second round to eventual national champions Hardin-Simmons (who Trinity will host on Saturday September 3rd). The result saw the Tigers finish with a 18-2-0 record, good enough for a No. 10 ranking.
Abby Loar (Senior, Forward), who earned All-America honors last season and lead the goal scoring, with 16 goals, will be a crucial player yet again for the Tigers. All-Region team selection Kelly Watts (Senior, Forward) will also be a crucial part of this team, which should be playing at its peak with 11 juniors and seniors in the ranks.
Defensively Katie Garrett (Junior) will be starting in goal, and looking to improve on her No. 22 national ranking last year for goals against average. Fellow Junior Lindsay Euers (Defender) will be crucial at the back, earning all-conference honors and being a target on set pieces, scoring three goals.
Lance Key has set very clear goals for this team “We want to play an attractive style. Yes, we want to be able to pass and receive. And yes, we do want to be able to score fantastic goals that are enjoyable to the spectator. But, in the end, we have to get results. The only way we will get results is by working very hard on a regular basis, and doing everything we can on an individual level to develop ourselves into our collective effort.”
Trinity is a college that demands success, and these girls will be keen to take that extra step and find themselves in the Final Four, and playing at Blossom Soccer Stadium on December 2nd and 3rd.
It’s not enough to play attractive soccer, Trinity has to win.
