The Potomac State Women’s Soccer Team added to their arsenal, Morgan Turley, one of the area’s top players. Turley, a four-year starter at Frankfort High School was named Defensive Player of the Year, by the Cumberland Times-news. Besides playing superior defense, Turley is also a scoring threat, scoring 22 goals with 5 assists last season. PSC’s Coach Sprouse commented, “Morgan is a tremendous defensive player, but really she’s a great player at any position. When she comes into a game you can see the difference immediately. Right now I see her as more of an offensive player for us, we need another finisher. I could also see her perhaps playing defense in special circumstances.”

Turley has led the Falcons to winning seasons for all four years and several trips deep into the West Virginia playoffs. “Morgan was definitely one of the best soccer players in the state, her Father, Scott Turley, was her head coach, so you know she knows the game inside and out,” added Coach Sprouse. In the four years she was a starter, she led the Frankfort girls to a record of 51-27-2, with a record breaking 15 wins in her senior year.
