Findlay High girls soccer coach Jon Hayfield, who had the Trojans in the thick of the Three Rivers Athletic Conference race until the final night of the regular season, has been named the TRAC Coach of the Year in selections recently released by the league.
Hayfield, in his second season as FHS head coach, had the Trojans sitting 5-1-1 in the TRAC and tied with Oregon Clay in the standings. Toledo St. Ursula was 5-1 heading into its final game with Toledo Notre Dame, and won that contest 2-1 to edge Findlay and Clay for the league title.
Seniors Celia Johnson, Kaelyn Couch and Alivia Benjamin were first-team all-TRAC picks for the Trojans.
Johnson made 99 saves in goal and registered seven shutouts as the Trojans went 8-8-2 overall. Couch (12 goals, 3 assists) led Findlay’s offense with 27 total points, while Benjamin (2 goals, 1 assist) was one of the team’s top defensive players.
Senior Madison Berry (2 goals, 3 assists) and junior Sophia Yu, who led the Trojans with 12 assists, were second-team all-TRAC selections. Seniors Emma Heidlebaugh and Ellie Zawisza and sophomore Colette Seager received honorable mention all-TRAC recognition.
St. Ursula’s Grace Turski was named the TRAC Player of the Year, with Clay’s Kennedy Slovak taking home Goalkeeper of the Year honors.
