“Lauren was one of the most important players the last couple of weeks,” head coach John Bowen said. ‘She was named captain, works real hard, and she embodies a lot of what we try to emulate as a soccer player at Starr’s Mill.”
As a senior, leader, and captain, Gutshall assists her teammates, points the way, and helps other players see what they should be doing.
“I think I am a positive leader,” Gutshall said. “I help the team offensively and defensively, and off the field and on the field.”
Next year, Gutshall will play for University of Tennessee-Chattanooga and plans to major in marketing.
Starr’s Mill recently defeated Whitewater, 4-0. Varsity girls followed up that win with victories over Riverdale and LaGrange. The Lady Panthers are currently undefeated in region play.
After a pair of away games next week, Starr’s Mill returns home to host North Clayton on March 21.
