Potomac State Women's Soccer Coach Mark Sprouse led his Lady Cats to an undefeated season last year, as they didn't lose a game until the post-season.
This year he hopes to get over that post-season barrier and he has found a stellar candidate to make it happen in Abby Lantz from Buckhannon-Upshur High School.
Lantz comes to Potomac State from the ultra-successful Lady Bucs program that finished last season with an overall record of 19-2-0 and had a Big Ten Conference mark of 11-0.
The Lady Bucs dominance was evident during Lantz's time as they recorded a sterling 71-12 record over the past four seasons, losing only eight regular season games over that span. This year, the Lady Bucs outscored their opponents an amazing 138-15.
Coach Sprouse hopes the success Lantz had at the high school level translates to post-season wins this fall for Potomac State.
