Soccer season ends on high note

By Keenan Gray

Whatcom Community College women’s soccer team capped off the 2018 season finishing second in the Northwest Athletic Conference North Division and clinched a playoff spot, only to lose it in the first round of the playoffs in double overtime to Tacoma Community College 3-2.

The women’s soccer team made the playoffs for a second consecutive season and compiled a winning record of 10 wins, 8 losses, and 1 tie.

“We played a lot of competitive teams at the beginning of the year,” said Coach Mary Schroeder.

“Heading into the regular season, I thought we did really well,” she said. “Definitely lost a couple a of games we probably should have had a better result from, but ended up being second in the North [Division] and making it to the playoffs.”

After losing 2-0 to Peninsula College on Oct. 6, Whatcom went on a four-game winning streak, averaging more than four goals per game against their opponents. They would play Peninsula, the eventual Northwest Athletic Conference champions, later in the same month. Although they lost 2-1, it was their most competitive game of the season.

Goalkeeper Erin Smith and defender Alexis Dettling were named Northwest Athletic Conference All-Stars as well as being awarded Northwest Athletic Conference Fall Excellence Awards for their work in the classroom.

Defender Jazlynn Ahrens, midfielder Christina Funk, and forward Payton Lunde were also given the Fall Excellence Award. Ahrens and Midfielders Katelyn Neher and Kylie Clark were named to the North All-Region team, representing the best players in the Northwest Athletic Conference’s North Division.
