The TPHS Girls JV Soccer team ended season play last Friday with a 3-1 win against Canyon Crest Academy and clinched the league title with a 15-0 record. The team scored an incredible 76 goals during the regular season, and 91 goals including the Barons holiday tournament in December. Coached by Jackie Busch and her son Brandon, the girls continued the winning tradition of the Torrey Pines soccer program. Jackie Busch has coached girls soccer for 14 years at Torrey Pines, and has won league every year! Despite a season plagued with injuries, the girls were able to adjust and step up to allow only 12 goals in the 15 regular season games. Special recognition was awarded to key players over the weekend, with Chelsea Lloyd winning the Best Defender award, Kelli McKinnon chosen as the Best Midfielder with 18 goals, Kate Thomas winning Best Offensive Player with 20 goals this season, and Sophia LeRose selected as the Most Valuable Player.
