Girls soccer: young team, good skill set

By Mark Robinson
Courtney Hudnall, girls soccer coach at Greenbrier East, says she has about 24 girls out for the team this year, which is the same number she had last year. “We lost nine players,” says Hudnall, “but we got nine eighth graders who came up. We’re a young team. I’m really excited for this team, the girls who’ve moved up have proven a lot. I’ll have to work with them, but it won’t take long. Their skill level is right there.”
Practices began Aug. 1. There is a scrimmage in Princeton on Aug. 13 and another in Nicholas County, depending on the progress of flood recovery there. The first home game is Aug. 23 against Oak Hill.
“It will be an exciting year,” says Hudnall. “Last year was an older group. With a little work, we might come out as strong as we did last year.”
