WHS Girls Soccer Off to 2-2 Start
The Lady Spartans advanced to 2-2 on the season with a home victory Tuesday night over CJ.  Waynesville jumped out to an early lead when sophomore Sam Erbach finished junior Allie Freese's cross.  Erbach followed up with a second goal set up by sophomore Caroline Stupp making the score 2-0 at halftime.  In the second half, sophomore Jillian Layne scored goal #3 for the Spartans by crashing hard on a goalkeeper's deflection and finding the back of the net.  Then, senior captain Savanna Amburgy played a pass through to freshman Baylee Williams who scored the breakaway goal.  The 4-0 victory was the Lady Spartans' first shutout of the season for junior goalkeeper Gracyn Armstrong and defenders Amburgy, senior captain Kate Handle, sophomore Emme Greely, sophomore Kayann Whitt, and junior Alyza Camp.
The win over CJ came one day after Waynesville beat Fenwick 8-1 at home.  Freese scored first off of Erbach's assist.  Erbach then scored the next 4 goals for the Lady Spartans off of assists from Layne (2), sophomore Brooke Woody, and senior Emma Whitaker.  Whitaker followed up with 2 goals of her own assisted by Erbach and off of a penalty kick.  Sophomore Kyla Harvey scored her first goal of the season off of a pass from Williams.
The 2 victories came after tough losses to Wyoming (2-0) and Miamisburg (3-5).  Against Miamisburg, the Lady Spartans scored their first goal in the first 30 seconds of the game off of a beautiful string of passes starting with the defense and finishing with Freese centering the ball to Erbach for the goal.  Erbach scored the second goal off of an assist from Freese again and the third goal off of a direct kick.  The Varsity team comprises seniors Savanna Amburgy, Maddie Beuchat (captain), Lillian Crumback, Kate Handle, and Emma Whitaker, juniors Gracyn Armstrong, Libby Bulach, Alyza Camp, Allie Freese, Laine Kuhns, and Emmy Lezotte, sophomores Sam Erbach, Emme Greely, Kyla Harvey, Jillian Layne, Caroline Stupp, Kayann Whitt, and Brooke Woody, and freshman Baylee Williams.
The JV is also off to a good start with 1-1-2 record.  The Lady Spartans grabbed their first win of the season beating CJ 3-1 at home.  In the two previous games, they tied Fenwick 1-1 and Wyoming 2-2.  Playing for the JV are juniors Alyza Camp, Katie Dick, and Emmy Lezotte, sophomores Samantha Boswell, Addison Hardyman, Makayla Kamp, Reagan Russell, and Danie Scamorza, and freshmen Natalina Capozzolo, Olivia Crumback, Rebecca Drew, Abigail Foley, Adelynn Harrison, Leah Hart, Lillian Hart, Lynsie Kuhns, Aleigha Post, and Avery Whitaker.
