Irish: Girls dominating scene...
By Robert Przybylo
It’s a good time be a part of Bishop McGuinness athletics, especially if you’re a girl:
Irish girls dominating
Bishop McGuinness goalie Elyse Hight is one of the loneliest soccer players lately.
In the last five games, the Bishop McGuinness girls soccer team hasn’t even come close to being tested, outscoring opponents 39-0.
The Irish beat El Reno 9-0 on Tuesday and the Indians failed to get a shot off. Abbey Akin continues to dominate, scoring four of the goals and adding an assist.
McGuinness, ranked No. 2 in Class 5A, will get a huge test Tuesday against third-ranked Deer Creek.
Irish looking for new tests
The Bishop McGuinness tennis teams weren’t on the court that much during the first month of the season. A combination of scheduling issues and cancellations had kept the Irish from playing.
Coach Vicki Connelly has always tried to play in the same tournaments every year as a sign of respect to the other teams competing, but the girls did something different this year by going to the Claremore Tournament on Thursday.
“We’re always looking for the best competition,” Connelly said. “We want to play the best, but it’s been tough this year with tournaments being canceled.”
