Ten parish soccer players to watch
Ascension soccer saw tremendous success last season as six of the eight boy’s and girl’s teams made the playoffs. With so many standouts returning in 2016-17, the parish’s impressive run to the postseason may just repeat itself.
Adelaide Gaffney (St. Amant)
As a freshman, Adelaide Gaffney proved to be one of the most dangerous offensive weapons in parish soccer. In helping lead the Lady Gators to a second-place finish in the district and a trip to the second round of the playoffs, she scored 23 goals and dished out nine assists. She was named Offensive MVP for both the all-district and All-Metro teams.
