DICKSON – With nine returning seniors and 13 new incoming freshmen, the Dickson County Lady Cougars plan to “shoot for another 10-win season” and “reach the district finals,” coach Chris Cardona said.
This 2019 Lady Cougars soccer team returns with a plethora of talent but there is one question mark where last season’s leading scorer, Kelsie Wall, has left some big shoes to fill.
“We return most of our midfield intact with Payton Louth, Annabeth Woodard, and Megan Hodi leading that group,” Cardona said. “Our defense is experienced with Cardona, Reynolds, Craft, and Emma Johnson on the back line with Heath returning as our keeper. We had a great camp and are looking forward to having a great preseason to sort out other questions too.”
The Lady Cougars were scheduled to begin preseason play on Tuesday, Aug. 6 against Fairview. The regular season is scheduled to begin Aug. 20 as the Lady Cougars will head down the road to Creek Wood to start against their county rivals.
