The Fort Madison Community School District cancelled spring sports due to the COVID-19 shutdown. FMCSD wants to recognize the senior athletes who were supposed to compete this year. The girls’ soccer team has four seniors, Sarah Bernhardt, Kenya Davis-Robinson, Anna Kester, and Madison McVey. Coaches Sebastian Seifert and Carrie Burken shares their thoughts on the four seniors on the girls’ soccer team.
Sarah has been a part of the team since her freshman year. She is one of the few players on the team that has been playing soccer pretty much her whole life. She brought a lot of soccer knowledge and grit to the team. Sarah is a player that isn’t afraid to get physical on the field. She has played everything from goalie to forward but her strongest position has been as a fullback. Sarah plans to attend SCC in the fall and play soccer for the Blackhawks.
Kenya joined girls soccer her sophomore year and her quiet calm demeanor has been a joy to have around. She is a player that does anything you ask of her. She brings a fun energy to the team, making everyone laugh and smile. Kenya never complains, is willing to help the team in any way she can, and is a force on defense.
Anna joined the team never having played soccer before, but that didn’t stop her from making an immediate impact on the team. She joined girls soccer her freshman year and immediately established herself as a leader. Through her relentless dedication and hard work, Anna became a solid player, on whom her teammates and coaches could always rely. Over the next three years she would join the leadership team, become a team captain, and compete in nearly all varsity matches. Anna has decided to continue playing soccer at SCC and we wish her all the best.
Madison McVey (Maddy)
Maddy joined the team her sophomore year and has missed nearly no games. She has been a great asset to our team and has been instrumental on the wing both on offense and on defense. Maddy is one of the hardest working athletes we have had the privilege of coaching and we are thankful she joined the team.
