Swainsboro High School’s varsity girls’ soccer team ended last season on a high note, finishing fourth in the region and qualifying for the state playoffs. Coach Chang Hua Lin returned a strong core for the 2022 season, and the team, winning its opener on Monday, appears to be well-oiled to handle a ringer of a schedule.
The Lady Tigers traveled to Treutlen on January 24 and came out strong in the first half, despite the Lady Vikings putting up a fight. Swainsboro led 2–1 going into the half and ran with the lead in the second, scoring 5 unanswered goals.
The win was a complete team effort as offensive stats credit multiple contributors. Kaylee Cox had a hat trick with 3 goals, Dekota Mason scored 2 goals, Crystal Hernandez had 1 goal and 2 assists, Alexis Ray scored 1 goal, and Brionna Coleman recorded 2 assists.
Moving forward, the Lady Tigers will play just a handful of opponents despite multiple games on the schedule. Woodville-Tompkins, East Laurens, Bacon County, and Vidalia have historically fielded quality teams and should make for some interesting rematches this year.
