The Baldwin girls soccer team has had a successful year so far, and they are ready to fight for the spot in the state tournament.

The Baldwin girls varsity soccer team has been on a roll throughout the entire season. They have beat teams such as Bishop Seabury, Louisburg, Cair Paravel and Bonner Springs.

“I knew we had to come out strong from last season and show everyone how talented we actually are,” junior Anna Burnett said.

The captains for the team this year are Burnett, Josie Boyle, Caitlin Countryman and Paige Ellis. They have been working hard with not only their team but with the JV team.

This season has been one of the best in my high school career. We are undefeated with only one tie. We all work really well together and make a well-rounded team, ” senior Paige Ellis said.

The varsity team is made up of many talented and athletic players. They have a great standing defensive and strong attacking line. Burnett has really put herself out there this year with 18 goals and 7 assists within 9 games.

“Our team defense has been great so far, allowing only 5 goals in our first 9 games,” coach Drew Ising said. “There have been so many standout players this season, but Anna Burnett has been having a really great start.”

The girl’s record last year was 8-6-1 and this year they are crushing that record and giving it their all every game to hopefully take that record all the way to state.

“I can’t imagine a harder working group of kids,” Ising said. “Our girls are involved in so many other school activities in addition to soccer, and we are still crushing it in the classroom. As a coach, I can’t imagine a much better, or harder-working group of kids.”
