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.
Margaret Britton (East Ascension)
East Ascension won the district title last season. Many of those victories were the result of their defense and superb goal-keeping by Margaret Britton. As a sophomore, Britton earned both first-team all-district and All-Metro honors. Throughout the course of the season, she only allowed nine goals, and she pitched 14 shutouts.
