Some of Louisville’s top soccer players are honored

The Louisville Catholic Sports Network All-Catholic Teams recognize student-athletes who played at the top level during the regular and postseasons within their sport. Players are selected based on nominations and feedback from local coaches and the Louisville Catholic Sports Network staff that covered the teams during the 2012 season.

2012, a season to remember in the local girls’ soccer world. Assumption, after losing six straight years in the post-season to Sacred Heart, finally defeated their archrival in the seventh region semifinal. Mercy advanced to the state tournament for the first time, and a lot of goals were scored in between.

Sydney Morabito (30 goals), Morgan Riggs (35 goals), and Kayla Richardson (47 goals) were three of the most prolific scorers in Kentucky prep soccer.

Not to mention the terrific defense each of these teams presented. Kelsey Kaiser (13 shutouts) anchored a tough Assumption defense. The duo of Corrine Peabody and Callie Taylor from Sacred Heart who split time in the net each game and recorded 11 shutouts. Then, there’s Lauren Lee who played an instrumental role in Mercy’s historic run to the sixth region title this past year and Izzy Sherman, Presentation’s goalkeeper who was the heart and soul of the Toppers.
