SOCCER: Claremore opens the season against Sand Springs

CLAREMORE — The Claremore High School varsity soccer teams kick off their 2014 season tonight in a doubleheader against Sand Springs at Lantow Field.

Under the coaching of Robin Sutherland, the Lady Zebras will take to the field at 6 p.m.; and the Zebras will follow at 8 p.m.

This year's Lady Zebras are led by four-year starting midfielder and Northeastern State University signee Katelin Teter. Teter brings a wealth of experience to the Lady Zebras lineup, as well as speed and tenacity.

In 2013, Teter scored 10-plus goals to help lead the Lady Zebras to the Class 5A State Quarterfinals.

Teter will be joined in the starting lineup by forwards Taylor Williams and Bailey Bacon, as well as midfielders Emily Parkinson, Jordan Pettay, Jentry Cruce, Bailey Minor and Dailey Thomas.

Claremore's Anna McGuire, Bailey Steckline and Brylee Brasher will join the soccer team once the basketball season is over with. All three players are returning starters.

Claremore junior sweeper Maddie Murray returns to anchor the defense and will be joined by sophomore Chandler Payne.

According to Sutherland, "This is the most experience and depth that we've had during my time as coach at Claremore. We are excited for the season and our goal is to make it back to the state playoffs."

This year's Zebras will be led by the senior leadership of sweeper Nick Hrdlicka and freshmen forward Alex Faught.

Claremore graduated 13 seniors from last year's Class 5A State Playoff squad. Also, the Zebras will be without forward Bear Hope and midfielder Jared Vincent, who have decided to concentrate on their football careers.

The Zebras also return midfielders Alberto Tinoco, Spencer Gill and Braden Harris, as well as senior defender Garrett Bossert.

Former Claremore Zebra and current Rogers State University midfielder Tommy Howe is back to serve as a volunteer assistant coach.

Both Claremore teams will also play in a round-robin on Saturday at Lantow Field.
