Cambridge Academy excelled in the spring, with two teams earning second in the state. The Cougars closed a successful chapter in girls soccer, with the last of the school’s program-starting seniors moving on.
Soccer takes state runner-up
Beaufort’s Holy Trinity Academy was no match for any team in the state this year. Holy Trinity sent Cambridge’s girls soccer team packing in Charleston with an 8-0 loss in the state championship.
The Cougars, who won the state championship last season with a 1-0 win against the same team, said goodbye at the end of the season to four seniors who helped start the program from scratch.
Molly Wanning, Grace Clegg, Gracen Price and Katherine Dorn were the last four remaining players who joined coach Robert Rooney as Cambridge set out to establish a girls soccer team. Cambridge is the only SCISA Class 1A girls soccer team in the Upstate, which brought even more challenges in fielding a competitive team.
Wanning signed at the end of the season to play soccer at Southern Welseyan. She was named the Index-Journal Player of the Year in girls soccer.
Wanning was also named All-Region during the winter in girls basketball. Her teammate, Lindsey Lee, was also named to the All-Region team.
Golf finishes second at state
Cambridge’s boys golf team inched closer to its goal of a state championship this season.
The Cougars took second at the state championship for the second consecutive year. Spence Hagood finished in the top five at the state championship tournament at Hacklet Golf Course in Conway.
Price makes it 6 career titlesSenior Gracen Price finished her career at Cambridge the right way. In addition to spending the spring season as the starting goalkeeper of the Cougar’s girls soccer team, she continued to dominate in track and field.
Price won the shot put and discus state championships at the SCISA Class 1A state title meet in Charleston. The state championships are Price’s fifth and sixth. She won the shot put and discus competitions for the third consecutive time.
