Both McNicholas’ Men’s and Women’s Soccer Teams found great success this past season, and many of the individual players also had their achievements recognized. Most notably are those of senior Trevor Hogue and sophomore Sophie Gorman.
Hogue was named to 1st team GCL Co-ed, 1st team All-City, 1st team All-State, and the All-region team, which is made up of Ohio and five other states. He took home the honors of GCL-Co-ed Co-player of the year and Division II Southwest Player of the Year. He said long, hard work has led to his success.
“Summer conditionings at 7 a.m. every morning and doing things on my own outside of practice all paid off,” Hogue said. “It is nice to see everything I have done for the past four years pay off in my senior year. It was a nice way to end my career here.”
Gorman also took home many awards and honors, headlined by being named to the NSCAA High School All American Team. In addition, she was named to the 1st team GCL Co-ed, Division II Southwest Ohio 1st team, and 1st team All-State. She won the team MVP, GCL Co-ed player of the year, and Division II Southwest Ohio player of the year. She additionally led the women’s team to a Division II state championship, and was one of only two sophomores in the country named to the All-American Team. Gorman said that she’s excited to have more time to add to her success.
“It’s an awesome feeling knowing that I’ve accomplished things in my soccer career of high school and I still have two more years,” Gorman said. “I’m grateful because without the support around me, I wouldn’t be where I am today.”
Hogue said he hasn’t decided what his plans are for next year as far as playing next season.
“I don’t have anything concrete yet, but I have options,” Hogue said.
Gorman, however, is very interested in taking her talents to the next level.
“I definitely want to play at the next level in college,” Gorman said. “Ever since I was five years old, I’ve had the dream to play soccer in college and even after college.”
