Bruisers Take State in Soccer

 TSSAA Division II AA championship goes to GPS
After amassing a 14–2–1 record this season, with a ranking of number six in the nation, the GPS Bruisers defeated the Briarcrest Christian School Lady Saints from Memphis 4–1 in the final game on Friday, October 28, at CHI Memorial Stadium, with a hat trick by senior Sasha Carbone and a lone goal by senior Kennedy Ball. Freshman keeper Farah House allowed only three goals the entire tournament. 

This is the third state final for the Bruisers in the past five years and the third state title for GPS. The senior class has tallied a remarkable 57–9–2 record over the past four years.

The Bruisers are coached by head coach Patrick Winecoff, who has led the team since 2014. He is assisted by coaches Nick Nelson, Liz Moore, and Alec Reddington plus team trainer Michael Loving. The team captains are seniors Ally McVay, Hayden Wise, and Kennedy Ball.

Congratulations to the GPS Bruisers Girls Soccer State Champs!
