The Springville-Griffith girls’ soccer team called six of their players to the 2020 Erie County Interscholastic Conference IV teams this month.
Nyah Solly, Jacy Schelble, Erin Dreweiga and Logan Lukert were named as the selection of the first team. The selection of the second team went to Hannah Goetz and Mabel Robinson.
The team won the ECIC IV regular season title for coach Kerri Voit from the first year with a 9-1-2 record. In the postseason, the team suffered a heartbreaking 2-1 loss to Albion on November 9th.
Lukert was named as the first team selection in goal after registering eight shutouts that contained blank sheets in the last five regular season games. “Logan has achieved the position of the best goalkeeper in Section VI. Your savings averaged 95 percent per game. She is an incredible leader and communicator in the field. Your commitment to the team is 100 percent present every day, ”said Voit.
Solly and Schelble were both named first-team midfielders after scoring 36 points based on information provided by coaches on the girls’ soccer section’s website. Solly had seven goals in the team lead and was tied six points ahead of the team’s assists lead, while Schelble scored half a dozen marks to get 16 points with four helpers.
“Nyah is a natural leader. She is very calm with her teammates and sets the tone on the field of every game. Your work ethic is amazing and all of the girls try to match. She is very humble about her talent, but very hungry when it comes to getting involved in the field. She creates teaching opportunities for her colleagues and leads them to learn from her, ”said Voit.
“Jacy is a great addition to our midfield. It has shown immense growth this year because it is versatile. She has the ability and understanding to play any position on the field and willingly does so for her team. “
Dreweiga was named as the first-team defender. Despite her position, she contributed four goals and six assists from the backline, the latter being synonymous with overall leadership in this category. The junior scored a goal in the last minute of the team’s lone playoff game at Pop Warner Field to send the competition into overtime.
“Erin is a great addition to our team. She scored important goals for us last season. She is very versatile in the field. Erin’s dedication and determination are qualities that her teammates admire and learn from, ”added Voit.
Although no position designations are given for the selection of the second team as for the selection of the first team, Goetz is listed as a defender / midfielder. She ended the season with four goals and four assists while Robinson received one assist after being listed as a midfielder / striker for the Griffins.
“Hannah is an excellent athlete. Not only does she play soccer in autumn, but she also manages to break records with her cross-country team. Her offensive presence has helped create dangerous games and scoring lots of goals while Mabel is a natural leader. Mabel sets a good example in the field. She always gives 110 percent every day and tries to constantly improve her game. She has been a great addition to defensive play and her aggressiveness in clearing and winning balls in the field has helped her team thrive this season.
