The South Plainfield Girls’ Soccer Team is in a rebuilding year. The Lady Tigers are continually improving as the season progresses. Last week the Girls’ Soccer team shocked GMC Division rival Spotswood. The Chargers came into the game at 5-1. The Lady Tigers did not defeat Spotswood, but played them to a 2-2 tie. This was a huge improvement from their previous loss of 5-0. One of the leaders of this year’s team is senior captain Courtney Smith.
On the season, Courtney has 1 goal and 1 assist while being a defender. She scored the tying goal against Spotswood after being pushed to the forward position. Courtney has been a three year varsity starter and is one of the hardest workers on the team. She will continue to guide the Lady Tigers on their quest to qualify for the NJSIAA State Tournament.
Each week the South Plainfield High School Athlete Department will feature an athlete of the week.
