Lady Zebras move up to 2nd in 5A State Soccer Poll

CLAREMORE — Claremore Lady Zebra soccer has raised some eyebrows across the state this spring thanks to the leadership of senior captain Katelin Teter.

A four-year starting midfielder and future Northeastern State University player, Teter has picked up where 2013 graduate Cailin Caldwell left off and continued the Lady Zebra soccer dominance in Class 5A.

The Lady Zebras (10-1) moved up two places in the Class 5A state rankings Monday, going from No. 4 to No. 2 in the girls soccer poll.

After recording a 2-1 win over Skiatook a week ago, in which freshman forward Olivia Maulsby scored the game-winning goal, the Lady Zebras moved within four points of the top spot in Class 5A.

Edmond Deer Creek currently sits in the driver’s seat with 134 total points, while Claremore is second with 130 and Carl Albert is third with 119. Coweta and Skiatook round out the Top 5 placements.

Under veteran head coach Robin Sutherland and seniors (Katelin) Teter, Emily Parkinson, Jentry Cruce, Bailey Bacon and Anna McGuire, the Lady Zebras are riding a 10-game winning streak going into the Class 5A state playoffs.

Also, the Lady Zebras closed out their conference season, outscoring the opposition, 31-1. They also completed a regular season with a perfect 7-0 record at Lantow Field.

Claremore dropped the season opener to Sapulpa; but since then, the Lady Zebras have pieced together one of the most impressive seasons in school history.

Claremore’s winning streak holds victories over three-time Class 4A state champion Verdigris (3-0), Class 6A Bixby (6-2), Class 4A Claremore Sequoyah (8-1), Class 5A No. 10 Pryor (2-0) and Class 5A No. 5 Skiatook (2-1).

For the fourth-straight season under Sutherland, the Lady Zebras are back in postseason play and aiming to go further than their state quarterfinal berth in 2013.

The Lady Zebras will open the first-roundof the 5A state playoffs on May 6 against Tahlequah at Lantow Field. Game time is still yet to be determined.
