Wando girls defeat Academic Magnet 3-0 in soccer
MOUNT PLEASANT--The Wando girls’ soccer team picked up a 3-0 victory over Academic Magnet tonight in the regular-season finale. The Warriors own an impressive 15-1 record, but still have some unfinished business.
The school celebrated Senior Night at Wando Stadium, and three of the six seniors -- Melissa McCool, Rachel Torlay and Alex Hayes -- have been letter winners for four years. They’ve played on teams that have combined for an 83-4 record in that stretch and produced two Class AAAA state championships. The other seniors are Hannah Ross, Grace Gore and Suzi Vallez.
The past is impressive, but what’s on their minds is the future, mainly May 17 when the Class AAAA state championship is contested at Memorial Stadium in Columbia. The Warriors lost to T.L. Hanna in last year’s state match, and the seniors want revenge and another championship ring.
