|WM girls soccer sets school record in wins|
The West Monroe High School girls soccer team set the bar a bit higher this season as they posted their best record in school history.
West Monroe (25-6-2) lost 1-0 in the second round of the Division I playoffs last week to Baton Rouge Magnet School. The hotly contested game saw Baton Rouge come up with a bigger offense than the Lady Rebels.
"We had the most wins in school history," West Monroe head coach Trey Long said. "The girls just never quit the entire year and worked extremely hard for the team all year long."
The total also marked another record for the Lady Rebels. After posting 20 wins a year ago, West Monroe now has recorded 45 wins in two seasons. That is the most in consecutive seasons for the program.
Morgan Huggins, the lone senior, was the backbone of a squad that was right in the middle of things for a state championship when few thought the program would accomplish as much as the 2008 team.
"She was a leader," Long said. "Morgan held us together. She was great for us on and off of the soccer field."
A pair of freshmen, Simone Willis and Becca Dupuy, led the Lady Rebels statistically from start to finish.
Willis was the hot-shot of the team, finishing with 25 goals on the year with nine assists. Dupuy added 22 goals and seven assists in her first year on the team.
Defensive honors for the team went to last season's district 1-5A defensive most valuable player, Tori Redding. Freshmen K.K. Foster, Mollie Sims and Aly Laygett also contributed this season.
Other scoring options for the Lady Rebels included sophomores Anne Muckleroy, Layci Gray, Devon Mitchell as well as junior forwards Megan Moore and Kirstie Anyan.
In 2001, Long took over the program at West Monroe Junior High School where many of the current players were in the program. Long also coached for two seasons at Good Hope Middle School in West Monroe before a short stint at Farmerville High School led him back to the Lady Rebels program.
"We are getting to the point to where the athleticism and backgrounds in soccer are coming together," Long said. "They are playing on a high level, and the skill level is so high."
The Lady Rebels will now start off-season work-outs concentrating on strength training and ball-handling skills. The team also plans to go to a summer soccer camp either at Ole Miss or Auburn University over the summer months.
