Charleston – If the weather ever cooperates, the soccer season at Ashley Hall will finally kick into high gear.

Rain has been an issue in the first two weeks of the spring sports season. The Panthers were able to begin their regular season in late February, losing to Charleston Collegiate, 4-2. A scheduled game against region 3-AAA foe Pinewood Prep was postponed due to weather on March 5.

The 2020 team, coached by Marc Simpson, is a mix of veteran seniors and a bevy of underclassmen. Simpson expects to use several underclassmen in the starting lineup.

Senior forward Selie Feldman is the team’s top returning player this spring. Senior Mackenzie Brady, a forward, and freshman Lilly Morrison were responsible for the two goals scored in the opener.

Other senior team members include Morgan Davis, Maura Mooney, Riley Turner, Zoe Sutton and Annika Kernen. Mooney, Sutton and Turner will be key defensive players.

Junior Ana Capri Burke and sophomore Isabel Marshall will share time in goal. Each played in the season opener.

Other juniors include Annie Prochazka (midfielder), Emma Reuther, Amanda Panduro (midfielder), and Eliza Murrell (defender).

Freshmen include Morrison, Brice Tibbals and Joelle Kernan. Eighth-grade midfielder Martha Rivers will see playing time as well.

Ashley Hall has several region matches coming up. The Panthers play First Baptist on March 10, Northwood Academy on March 17, and Porter-Gaud on March 19.

Ashley Hall will induct six former athletes into the athletic hall of fame on April 16.
