Unbeaten Lady Jags Clinch Division with 2-1 Victory at Wootton
The Northwest girls’ soccer team won the 4A/3A West Division with a 2-1 victory at Wootton on Thursday night.
“Winning the division means a lot to us,” said Head Coach Josh Kinnetz. “This is the second division title in our program history and it has happened within the last three seasons. It's vindication of the hard work the girls have been putting in and the progression of the program. The program is owning a champion's mentality. It's a stepping stone and dress rehearsal for the process of winning a state championship.”
