Sherwood Christian girls' soccer team started the season knowing they had a good team, however what they didn't know was, by the end the season they were going to be winning the school's first athletic state title.
The Lady Eagles entered the GISA Class AA State tournament as a number one seed hosting Arlington Christian for round one of the playoffs, and after a huge shut-out their quest for a title continued. Round two began, when the number two seed in their bracket Trinity Christian tried to put an end to their run, but failed. Sherwood would host another shut-out over Trinity Christian for the 3-0 victory.
Entering the final four Sherwood Christian would host First Presbyterian Christian Academy and Head Coach for the Lady Eagles knew it was going to be a challenge.
Head Coach Jason Schultz said, "We knew going into this match-up that they were big and physical, but if our defense could keep playing like they have been we should be fine."
Once again the defense came through hosting a 2-0 shutout for the win, and more importantly setting up the state championship match between Sherwood Christian and Monsignor Donovan. Once the match started Katelyn Cuff scored the first goal in the first half, giving the Lady Eagles the 1-0 lead at the half. The second half was no different; Hannah King and Kylee Harrod would soon follow with goals of their own for the 3-0 victory in the GISA Class AA State tournament.
Sherwood Christian girls' soccer not only won the state championship, but won the school's first state title in history for the entire athletic program. They finished the season with an overall record of 21-2-1 and they won 15 straight to earn the state crown.
