Another successful season on tap for SMS girls soccer
The Snoqualmie Middle School Eagles girls soccer team continues to amaze. Once again they are on pace to win the Seamount League championship, and in doing so, go undefeated for the second straight year.
The Eagles defeated their Valley rivals, the Chief Kanim Hawks, last Monday 5-0. SMS has been dominant again in 2008, as they only have been scored on twice all season. The Eagles, for their part, have scored 29 goals, and are on pace to break their mark from last year, 38.
Leading this years cast is Miranda Rawlings, who is having a stellar start to her campaign. Rawlings leads the team with 12 goals and two assists, and is aiming to break the SMS single season scoring record, set by Mariana Zanella, who scored 16 in 2002. Zanella went on to have a very successful high school career with Mount Si; she will graduate this spring.
Snoqualmie and Chief Kanim will hold their annual game at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 26 at Mount Si High Schools stadium. Parents are invited to come to the game and support the future of Wildcat girls soccer.
