Easton, Pa - EASTON, Pa- With the squad getting ready to come back to campus in the upcoming weeks, summer was no time for relaxation for six members of the Lafayette women's soccer team. Two incoming freshmen, a junior, and senior found their way to the championship games with their summer club teams in their respective age brackets.
Sophomore goalkeeper Lauren Smedley (Montclair Aristocats) faced off against Leopard teammate Allison Stone '13 (Bethesda Sharks) in the U-19 Region-Semi-Finals, with Smedley's club getting the best and advancing to the title game.
The championship game also had some Leopard flavor with Smedley taking on junior Julie Bell's squad (FC Buck Vipers) for the U-19 Region 1 championship. For the second consecutive year, Bell's team took the title.
Caitlin Kennedy (FC Delco Fury) also captured the championship title in the U-23 Region 1. Both Bell and Kennedy advanced to play in Overland Park, Kansas.
In addition, sophomore Liz Cole (CFC United) ended her club soccer season in the Region 1 semi-final contest.
Two incoming were also part of successful club seasons. Freshmen Rachel Baer (Colorado Storm Copa) and Avery Jackson (PDA Fire) made their way to a championship game. Baer's squad came out on the short end of the title contest in the Region 4 final and while Jackson's team fell in the U-18 Regional final.
Lafayette returns to campus in mid-August to prepare for the 2010 campaign.
