CCHS soccer team receives letters, special awards

CROSSVILLE — The Cumberland County High School Lady Jets soccer team received their letters and special awards during their annual banquet Sunday afternoon at Forte's Restaurant.

Assistant coach Andrea Marshall, substituting for Coach Cub Whitson, thanked the booster club, the school administration, parents who drove to the games, Jack Daniels (bus driver) and the families of the coaches.

After that, she presented some gag awards to the players, before presenting letters to the team. Receiving letters were Kristy Rose (manager), Allison Graham, Angel Perry, Anna Holt Shaw, Baile Houston, Brianna Taylor Brooke Golden, Emily Monday, Jennifer Hedgecoth, Jordan Hedgecoth, Kayde Johnson, Kirsten Cox, Kyndell Johnson, Maddi Potter, Marian Meeks, Marissa Vincent, Mia Mijatovic, Savannah Kerley and T.J. Godsey.

Golden was the All-Around MVP "because she played everywhere and played well wherever we stuck her," noted Whitson, whose remarks were read by Marshall.

Houston was the offensive MVP.

"I knew she had it  in her and finally towards the end of the season, she cut loose and led the team with three goals," according Whitson.

Kerley was the defensive MVP.

"She got a lot of practice this season, but I saw a lot of improvement from her in the goal. She made some very spectacular saves. She was so creative in the goal. She even blocked a couple (of shots) with her face," according to Whitson.

Taylor was the midfield MVP.

"She was a calming presence on the field, and she played her role well. She understood what her role was and accomplished her jobs," noted Whitson.

Monday was the Most Improved Player.

"From day one, she showed a lot of promise, even though you could tell she had no idea what she was doing. A lot of it was just her work ethic. She worked so hard that she was bound to get better. And she did, she got a lot better. But my favorite thing about Emily is that she enjoyed (playing soccer), and you could tell because she was always giggling and smiling on the field," noted Whitson.

The Lady Jets Awards went to Jordan Hedgecoth and Maddi Potter, both freshmen; Anna Holt Shaw and Mariah Meek, sophomores and Jennifer Hedgecoth, junior.

Coaches awards went to Kirsten Cox and Marrisa Vincent.

"Kirsten is an amazing young lady. She does everything we ask of her to the best her abilitities. I talked Marissa into playing. She showed lots of determination, even when she was sick. I describe her as fighter. She wouldn't give up," added Whitson.

Mijatovic won the Natalie Dawkins Award.

"She played all four years and is the only player left on the team from the year we went to the region. The ideal teammate. She never caused problems. She has a great sense of humor," concluded Whitson.
