TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOR THE MEMBERS OF J. L. MANN HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS VARSITY SOCCER TEAM FOR AN OUTSTANDING SEASON AND TO CONGRATULATE THEM FOR CAPTURING THE 2015 CLASS AAAA STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE.
Whereas, the South Carolina House of Representatives is pleased to learn that the members of the J. L. Mann High School girls soccer team of Greenville County won the state competition held at River Bluff High School in Lexington on Friday, May 15, 2015; and
Whereas, to the delight of their fans and the disappointment of their foes, the Lady Patriots carried home the state trophy by defeating longtime rivals Wando High School 3-2; and
Whereas, for the first time in three years, J. L. Mann bested Wando's Lady Warriors to become the Class AAAA state champions in soccer; and
Whereas, with a 25-1-1 record, the Lady Patriots entered the final game of the season more determined than ever and emerged victorious when J. L. Mann junior Marian Wolski beat a defender and then the keeper with a rapid-fire shot with only four minutes left to play, giving her team the lead; and
Whereas, J. L. Mann improved the team record that game by one and posted an extraordinary season record of 26-1-1; and
Whereas, in a sport that demands speed, skill, and dexterity, Head Coach Steve Georgopoulos and his talented coaching staff capitalized on their own athletic ability and training to forge a championship team and teach these athletes valuable skills that will last a lifetime; and
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives are grateful for the pride and recognition that the J. L. Mann High School soccer players have brought to their school and their community and expect to hear of their continued achievements in the years ahead. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, recognize and honor the members of J. L. Mann High School girls varsity soccer team for an outstanding season and congratulate them for capturing the 2015 Class AAAA State Championship title.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Principal Charles S. Mayfield and Coach Steve Georgopoulos.
