Lady Norse Soccer is on a three game winning streak with an overall record of 10-2. Currently ranked 18th in the NJCAA poll, NEO’s high-powered shooting has led them to victories over Paris, Rose State, and MCC-Maple Woods. The Lady Norse have shut out their opponents seven times behind the goalkeeping of Demi Schlageter (So) and Darista Herrera(Fr). The pair has a save percentage of 82.7% and Demi Schlageter was recently names the Division I Women’s Soccer Goalie of the Week after saving five shots on goal.
“We’re really excited with the progress we’ve made and we think the season is going really well,” said Lisa Bell, head women’s soccer coach. “We’ve consistently been ranked in the top 20 this year and we recently climbed to number 18.” Coach Bell has led the Lady Norse soccer program since its inception in 2008.
The soccer team ranks tenth in the division in shots. Sophomore forward Paige Logsdon leads the team with 39 shots on goal. Combined with freshman midfielder Mariam Bartlett’s 31 shots on goal, the pair has put more shots on goal than all NEO’s opponents combined.
“We still have our kinks to work out, but the girls are working really hard,” Bell added. “We have another big conference game against number 10 ranked Northern Oklahoma Tonkawa, so that’s our next big challenge.”
