Seymour girls soccer team wraps up season


Lizzie Lenart accomplished a lot for the Seymour girls’ soccer team during the past four years.

She helped the Owls not only post winning records, but also set school records, and she earned All-Jackson County, All-Hoosier Hills Conference, All-District and Academic All-State honors.

“In my seven years coaching at Seymour, she’s the most feisty player I’ve coached,” Owls coach Greg Musser said before presenting her with the most valuable player award Tuesday night.

Musser said Lenart had a big hand in the Owls recording a school record 11 shutouts this season, and posting a record of 13-5-2 this fall after winning 12 matches a year ago.

The Owls placed third in the HHC with a record of 4-2-1. Lenart, Mallory Moore and Alyssa Perry were named All-HHC first team, and Aidan Hiester, Bailey Lykins and Lillie Wessel were named honorable mention.

Lykins topped the team in scoring with 13 goals and she had 3 assists, and Wessel had 10 goals and 2 assists.

Lenart was also named to the All-District team. She was selected to play in the soccer showcase at Indianapolis’ North Central High School Nov. 17-18, but won’t be able to play due to other commitments. Musser will coach the District 4 girls’ team.

Lenart, Haley Carpenter, Carmin Smith, Kristina Griffin, McKenzie Bailey, Hiester, Kate Snook and Elizabeth Hartman were named to the academic all-state team.

Musser said the girls had to be juniors or seniors, and have a GPA of 3.7, and be on the sectional roster to make academic all-state.

Moore received the coaches award, and Sydney Musgrave and Snook were named co-repentants of the most improved award.

Snook, who replaced Hiester in goal midway through the season, had seven shutouts.

Perry was named the top team player. That award is presented by the Indiana Soccer Coaches Association.

Haley Westfall was the most valuable junior varsity player.

Lenart, Smith, Griffin and Carpenter received their fourth varsity award, and Musser said, “That is a pretty good accomplishment.”

The other senior on the team was Kelsey Lentz, and Musser said the five seniors “were amazing young women.”
