Sydni Thatcher, a Lincolnview eighth-grader representing the Van Wert Elks Lodge 1197 in the 11-14 age group, recently won the state soccer shoot competition held on July 27 in Coshocton, Ohio. She will now advance and represent Ohio in the Mid-Atlantic Regional Soccer Shoot held in Frederick, Maryland, on March 8, 2014.
When asked how excited she was to be advancing, she replied, “I couldn’t believe it … this year was my last chance to do it and I did it!” She also added that she hopes everyone checks their newspaper for the date of next year’s soccer shoot at the Van Wert Elks Lodge so they can have as much fun as “I’ve had at the local, district and state competitions!”
Congratulations, Sydni, and good luck in Maryland!
