The Dexter girls’ soccer team hits the pitch with a young team, an experienced coach and high expectations. The last two are a given for a program that has scored incredible success over the past decade.
Dexter went 11-8-2 overall last season, including 9-1-0 in the league and an SEC White Division championship. Dexter lost to South Lyon East in the Districts.
Back from that team is Hannah Tarnaski, who was the Dreads’ team MVP and Third Team All-State last year.
With a sophomore laden team, the experienced leadership of senior captains Tarnaski and Riley Doll will be a major factor.
Junior forward Emily Zeitunian and sophomore forward Morgan Esch return for a quality scoring punch. They will be supplemented by sophomore Emma Ripka and senior Beth Pederson.
Defensively young, they will be led by the experience of junior central defender, Louisa Judge and sophomore keepers, Caitlin Micallef and Nicole Tuzinowski.
Sammi Corcoran, a solid dynamic playmaker, will help patrol the midfield along with returning sophomore Kianna Marquez.
The core of the team’s success will develop out of it’s midfield.
After winning their opener 8-0 over Harbor Springs, Dexter travels to Ypsilanti Lincoln for their first SEC match on April 14.
