(Nov. 9, 2018) The Stephen Decatur girls’ soccer team’s season ended last Monday in the second round of the 3A East Region tournament.

The Lady Seahawks, seeded fourth in the 3A East Section II, took a trip to Salisbury last Monday to face the top-seeded James M. Bennett Clippers. Both teams received first-round byes. Bennett won the match, 6-1.

Decatur finished the season with a 4-9 record.

“Overall, the season was very up and down, but the girls ended making great improvements and playing the best they had all season,” Decatur Coach Maggie Berke said.

The team will graduate nine players, six of them starters.

“I think the team next year looks promising,” Berke said. “A lot of young, motivated girls are returning, so it should be a positive year.”
