Girls Soccer Lands Seven on All-Middle Georgia Team

MACON, Ga. – After another historic season, the FPD girls soccer team (19-1) saw its hard work honored by The Macon Telegraph with seven players named to the All-Middle Georgia Girls Soccer Team.

Highlighting the list was senior Katey Griggs, who picked up the Player of the Year honors. Griggs’ player of the year nod is the fourth in girls soccer history, the last in 2012 when Kim Caitlin Alderman took the honor.

Griggs was a mainstay at midfield for the Lady Vikings in 2014, pacing FPD back to the GHSA Class-A State Championship Match vs. Pace on May 17.

During her time as a Lady Viking, Griggs has made girls soccer a force to be reckoned with. The squad had an astounding 96-8 record with Griggs on the team. She started 102 of those matches.

Fellow teammates were also honored with senior Amy Morgan and juniors Jane Howell, Sara Robertson and Maisyn Samples earning a spot on the All-Middle Georgia First Team.

Morgan scored the game-winning goal in FPD’s Final Four match against Fellowship and finished the season with 20 goals and 10 assists while Howell punched in 24 goals of her own.

Robertson anchored FPD’s back line as mid-defender, helping the Lady Viking secure 13 shutouts on the campaign.

Samples was also a member of the defense and scored three goals and racked up nine assists.

Rounding out FPD’s All-Middle Georgia players are keeper Megan Sparks (second team) and mid-fielder Baylee Heard (honorable mention).

Head coach Josh Trieste was named the All-Middle Georgia Girls Soccer Coach of the Year. The skipper picked up his 500th career win on April 8 when the Lady Vikings bested Griffin 4-0. He has also lead FPD to an unbeaten home record since joining the GHSA in 2011 and his squads have advanced to the state title match three of the past four years.
