The Winfield General’s Girls Soccer have won yet another state championship this time in AA competition. This marks five consecutive state championships for the Generals.  Winning 2-0 against a stout Charleston Catholic team, the Generals dominated the game outshooting their competition 17-1. “I really thought we could of won by more, the girls played amazingly the whole game,” said assistant coach David Bailey. The Generals impenetrable defense limited the Irish scoring possibilities and lead to more offensive opportunities on the other side of the field. One defensive player that helped lead was junior center back Camille Frye.  One of five captains on the team, Frye and the defensive unit only allowed 16 goals and a totaled 12 shutouts for the 24-game season. The General’s defense saved their best game for the post-season as they only allowed a single goal in all of sectional, regional, and state tournament play combined.

“We started out a little tough this season, we lost our first 2 games, but we were able to come together as a team, settle some issues and bounce back.” said Frye.  “It was tough losing some of the leaders we had last year, but girls stepped up and played great as a team.”

Head coach Marshal Hoff has had many great players that have gone on to play on the collegiate level while at the helm for Winfield’s girls’ soccer team. Coach Hoff would count himself lucky to have his junior defensive back for another year. When asked about Frye he said, “She is a great competitor and brings the best out in herself and her teammates. Cami is the glue that holds our defense together on and off the field. The girls in this program make great sacrifices to be where they are and Coach Bailey and their parents couldn’t be more proud of their dedication and achievements from the fruit of their labor.” The Generals will have some time to enjoy this year’s firth consecutive state championship, but you can bet they will be back to work in no time and preparing to defend their title. 

Cami keeps a busy schedule and with soccer now over she is going to give swimming a try for the first time before she returns to the track for the Generals in the spring. 

  Frye currently carries a 3.6 GPA, and while she is having success in both athletics and academics she is not sure yet where she will be attending college.  Even with her accomplishments, she is remaining humble, crediting God, her coaches and teammates as well as her parents Laura and Donnie for allowing her to accomplish everything she has.
