Heather advances to nationals

Published Oct. 4, 2005

The Town 'N Country Heather under 19 girls won the USYSA Southern Regional Championship with a 2-0 victory over the Georgia Lightning Saturday night in Greenville, S.C.

"I'm still kind of in shock," Heather coach George Fotopoulos said. "It was fantastic."

Robin Confer, who attended Clearwater Central Catholic before going to the University of North Carolina, scored the first goal for the Heather (54-1). Southern Methodist University's Danielle Garrett iced the game with a second-half goal.

The Heather advances to play July 26-30 in the nationals in West Palm Beach.

"Because of all the players we have, we'll probably be considered the favorite," Fotopoulos said. "But at that level, all four teams are deserving."

The Temple Terrace Spirit under-16 team recently captured the Regional Championship.

Playing for the side were Franklin Arroyo, Juan Avilez, Matt Gordon, Alex Haywand, Luke Heinz, Matt Lambert, Clark Scalera, J. C. Suarez, Jack and Pat Toohey, Jerry Thompson, Luis Rivera, Jack Schneider, Jesus Sira, Aaron Watkins and Angel Valezquez.


Dick Marshall scored a hole-in-one on No. 2 of the Kings Point Executive Course recently.

Don Corregan, Frank Madel and Norm Ricker were playing in the foursome.
