(Treynor) Tri-Center and St. Albert will meet up this evening for a trip to state in Class 1A Girls Soccer. That's been a familiar regional tournament matchup in recent years with St. Albert getting the last laugh each of the last few years.
Tri-Center comes in at 15-3 overall, they are ranked 9th in the state, and have won 8 in a row. The Trojans are led by Kaylee Grote, one of the state's elite offensive players. Grote has 161 goals in her career including 37 this year. St. Albert enters at 12-8, the Falcons upset #13 Underwood 6-1 in the regional semi's.
This will be the 2nd meeting between these squads this year. Tri-Center beat St. Albert 1-0 in the regular season. Coach Jeff Lefeber admits his team cleared a mental hurdle in that matchup and adds that the tough schedule with games against Glenwood, Spencer, and Abraham Lincoln should be a benefit tonight.
