High Schools: A Familiar Name Continues to Make a Name for Herself
If you pay attention to our high school sports coverage at all, the name Elyse Hight is a familiar one.
(And if you don’t pay attention to it, what’s wrong with you? Yeesh … )
Hight’s name is familiar because we’ve written all sorts of stories about her in the past few years. That’s because, well, she was a prep stud. During her time at Bishop McGuinness, she was a first-team All-City soccer player twice, a first-team Big All-City basketball player once and was a four-time state track meet qualifier, not to mention being a honor student who won our scholar-athlete of the year award this past summer.
Full disclosure here: Hight’s dad, Joe, works for The Oklahoman.
But I can guarantee you, we’d have written all those stories about her and bestowed all those accolades upon her these past few years regardless of who her dad is.
She was just that good.
And now, we’ve got backup for that opinion.
Hight has been named the starting goalkeeper for the Notre Dame women’s soccer team. Yes, she’s a true freshman, and at Notre Dame, true freshmen don’t often get to start much less start in goal. That’s because the Fighting Irish are among the stalwarts of women’s college soccer, having won three national championships in the past two decades and claiming their last title only two seasons ago.
