Success is something many people look for, but only a few achieve. Led by head coach Jonathan Garbar and his staff, the Franklin Pierce University women’s soccer team found success last year by winning their league-leading eighth Northeast-10 Conference title and advancing to the second round of the NCAA Soccer Championship. If you ask the team, they’ve already started to find success this year.
The ball sailed through the uprights cleanly, a 20-yard chip shot off the foot of then high school senior Morgan Smith. Smith and friends were down at the football field after school. Nobody else was there and so for fun her friends told her she should try and kick a field goal. Smith attempted and succeeded, but the idea of Smith, a five-year varsity soccer player, playing football was only something that was joked about. But then it suddenly wasn’t a joke, and soon she earned a spot as kicker for South Glens Falls High School in upstate New York.
