[August 24, 2016]
Second year head women's soccer coach Syd Baker is ready to get
the 2016-17 soccer season underway. And so are her players. The Lady
Lynx will get that chance as they will open up play at home on
Wednesday, August 24 at 4:00pm against Indian Hills Community College at
The Lady Lynx have plenty of experience on their side as they
return nine sophomores to the field, led by sophomore defender
Abigail Marquez (Rochelle, IL) and returning sophomore Amanda Villa
(Aurora, IL) in goal. "We have a solid defense with experience and
are hoping to improve on last year's season," said Baker. "The girls
have been putting in the hard work the past couple of weeks and are
hoping to build a bright future for Lady Lynx Soccer."
Offensively, the Lady Lynx will be led by former Lady Railsplitter
and incoming freshman Alexis Beard who will help control the middle
along with sophomore Miriam Lopez (Waukegan, IL). Sophomore Jazmin
Herrera (Waukegan, IL) and freshman Logan Paige (Chicago, IL) will
help lead the offensive attack for the Lady Lynx this season.
There will be plenty more local flavor taking the field this season
for the Lady Lynx as former Lady Railers Ashlyn Marthers (sophomore)
and Jaylee Swinford (freshman) look to improve on last season's win
total. The 2015-16 season was a learning and rebuilding season for
Coach Baker and her squad, and she and her coaching staff are ready
to get things rolling.
