Hrdlicka, Teter pour ‘heart’ into Zebra soccer program

CLAREMORE — For the past four years, Claremore High School seniors Katelin Teter and Nick Hrdlicka have represented the ‘heart and soul’ of the Lady Zebra and Zebra soccer programs.

The soccer duo will join seven other seniors on Friday night for Homecoming against Collinsville at Lantow Field.

Hrdlicka, a four-year starting sweeper, and Teter, a four-year starting midfielder, were voted on by their teammates as the 2014 Claremore High School Soccer Homecoming King and Queen.

The ceremony will take place during halftime of the Zebras game, which should start around 8:30 p.m. The Lady Zebras will start at 6 p.m., followed by the Zebras at 8 p.m.

So far this season, the two senior leaders have played important roles in their team’s overall success. Teter and Hrdlicka are both captains, as well as, scoring threats for their teams.

Currently, under Teter’s leadership and the help of seniors Anna McGuire, Jentry Cruce, Emily Parkinson and Bailey Bacon, the Lady Zebras (8-1) have won eight consecutive games since falling to Sapulpa in the season opener.

The Lady Zebras are also ranked No. 4 in Class 5A heading into Friday’s Metro Lakes Conference showdown.

In February, Teter signed a NCAA Division II national letter of intent to play college soccer for Northeastern State University in Tahlequah.

A year ago, Teter played an integral part in sparking the Lady Zebras to a Class 5A State Quarterfinals appearance against Booker T. Washington.

Hrdlicka, meanwhile, brings a wealth of soccer knowledge and quickness to the Zebras this season.

On the season, Hrdlicka has scored four goals — including two in the season opener against Sapulpa — to lead the Class 5A No. 12-ranked Zebras, who are 5-5 on the season. Behind Hrdlicka’s defensive prowess, Claremore has become a force to reckon with in 5A over the past four years.
