Southlake Carroll’s roster was loaded in 2016. Bringing back
plenty of firepower from last year’s team that went to the 6A Regional Finals,
Coach Matt Colvin’s Lady Dragons had no issue getting production from an
experienced group of athletes. Texas A&M commit Ally Griffin had a stellar
junior campaign leading the team with 49 goals and 109 points, the star forward
earned district 7-6A forward MVP honors.
Forward Allie Luna received 7-6A district MVP for an impressive senior
season. The Kansas State commit led the team in assists (30), while finishing
third on the team in goals (15). Southlake Carroll’s stingy defense was the
best in the state and played a huge part in their success. Thanks in part to
freshman goalie Madison Martin’s 0.55 goals allowed per game, the Dragons
outscored the opposition 143-15. With so many positives to take from this
season, the future in Dragon Land looks mighty bright. Losing 13 seniors from
this year’s team, Southlake Carroll will surely reload as they look forward to
next season. With a few key contributors back in the fold for the Dragons, the
future continues to look bright.
The Dragons entered the 2016 season with sky-high expectations. Named as the No. 1 high school girl’s soccer team in the country by USA Today’s preseason rankings, Southlake Carroll lived up to much of the hype going undefeated in a very competitive 7-6A district. The Dragons faced some of their toughest tests before the postseason even began. Beating nationally ranked Coppell twice and out-of-state powerhouses Monteverde Academy (Florida) and Santa Margarita (California), scoring wasn’t an issue for the Lady Dragons in 2016 as they averaged a whopping 5.64 goals per game. After opening the postseason with a 10-0 victory against South Grand Prairie, Southlake Carroll saw their season end in heartbreaking fashion. Losing in penalty kicks to Flower Mound Marcus in the Region 1 Area round of the playoffs, Carroll suffered only its second loss of the season. “We had an amazing season and we really stuck together to build on last year’s success,” says Head Coach Matt Colvin. “We will be back next year and are looking forward to making strides in the off-season.”
