“With 91 career goals in high school, you are going to get people's attention,” Anderson said. “I know this sounds odd, but she is a better scorer now than she was as a freshman. This year we've had a harder time getting her the ball.”
Dike is not the only soccer star in her family. Her older brother, Bright, was a standout at Edmond North, played collegiately at Notre Dame and now plays professional soccer for the Portland Timbers. He also played on the Nigerian national team because their parents are natives of Nigeria.
Courtney also was a two-year starter for the Lady Huskies' basketball team.
“She is physically a beast whether on the basketball court or the soccer field,” Anderson said. “You are not going to push her around. She stands in there and takes it. You are not going to knock her off the ball.”
The Lady Huskies have their youngest soccer team as a whole in four years. Dike is only one of four seniors on the team.
Even so, Dike doesn't think she has to carry Edmond North to victory, but she is the player the Lady Huskies depend on the most.
“Some way or another she is involved in every goal, whether it shows up in the stats or not,” Anderson said.
