Curtin ready for fourth year at the helm of Lady Mavs’ soccer

Lady Mavs face Clinton in season opener Aug. 20 season Aug. 20

Anderson County’s girl soccer team is gearing up for the season. This will be head coach Chris Curtin’s fourth year at Anderson County.

“I’m excited,” said Curtin. “You know, some of these girls have been with me for almost 10 years now. I was their soccer coach in the fourth grade, then middle school, and now high school.”

Curtin said he was most impressed with the ball handling skills and the depth the girls have showed this season.

“Everything’s looking really well.

“We had camp at Lee [University] this year and I was super impressed.”

The team has a relatively even number of freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors, which Curtin hopes will keep them from being too top heavy and help them perform at the same level in the years to come.

“I think one of our best advantages is that we’ve got a good balance.”

Coach Curtin said he’s had a good group of around twenty new girls coming in and he’s really excited that so many are showing an interest in the sport.

Anderson County’s first game of the season is Aug. 20 against Clinton.

It will be an in-school game that will start at 2:15 p.m.
