High school girls’ soccer Player of the Season

SARAH CARLSON

S chool: Bow High

Class: Senior

Honors: The midfielder was a scoring ace for the undefeated Division III champions, and won the title for the Falcons with an overtime penalty kick goal in a 1-0 win over Hopkinton.

Describe the season in one word: Memorable.

Did it make the win any sweeter to come against Hopkinton, who beat you in that game last year? It certainly did, after they took the title from us last year, it made us want to work that much harder to earn it back, which paid off nicely.

What were you thinking going into that penalty kick? I was just telling myself not to mess it up, and not to look at the goalie because if I did, I would have psyched myself out.

Was it a different feeling winning this year after also winning a title in your sophomore season? It’s definitely a lot sweeter this year than my sophomore year, considering I’m a senior now and leaving behind a perfect season.

What would you consider to be your top skill on the field? Probably my ability to see the whole field.

Who was an unsung hero for the team this year? Julia Currier. She came up to varsity this year strong and ready to go. She was a huge part of our defensive line.

What’s Jay Vogt’s coaching style? My favorite type: laid back and quiet, and he gets the job done well. Four finals appearances in four years says it all.

This team made four straight championship games, winning two of them. What’s made this team so successful? I think our team chemistry is what has made us so successful. It’s been so strong over the past four years.

What soccer teams do you follow, if any? I don’t actually watch soccer other than high school games.

If you didn’t play soccer, what would be your fall sport? I’ve been told many times I should be the field goal kicker for the football team.

Do you like playing on real grass or turf more? Real grass.

Do you follow the Winter Olympics? What sport do you watch closest? For the most part I like to watch snowboarding, alpine and downhill skiing.

If you could bring back any show no longer on TV, which would it be? Boy Meets World

Do you have any hidden or unknown talents? Yes, but if I told you, they wouldn’t be hidden anymore.

What’s your favorite movie? S pace Jam

If you could snap your fingers and be in any place, where would you want to go? Where wouldn’t I go? But if I had to choose, I’d like to go to Ireland.

Do you have a favorite band or musician? I like a lot of different types of music but Eminem gets me pumped for the big games.

What are your plans for next year? Do they include soccer? I plan to attend Castleton State College next year to play soccer.
