Young looks forward to her senior year in soccer


 Katelyn Young said the future is bright for White County Warriorette Soccer, and she hopes to be a part of a push for more success in the upcoming 2022 fall season.

“I think we are going to be really good. We have a lot more experience going into this next season,” Young, who has played soccer since she was 9, said.

Young is now a defensive player for the WCHS Warriorettes and admits her chosen sport isn’t one that is overly popular in White County, so gaining experience and momentum has taken awhile for the team.

“We got a lot of good quality time together last year, and we built close relationships with each other, and we have a really good dynamic,” she said. “I expect to see a lot of improvement due to that teamwork and our trust in each other.”

Young, who will be a senior by the time the Warriorettes take the field again, said she plans to take the need for the team to work together and bring their best skills to the field personally.

“I already saw myself as a leader since I was a captain,” she explained. “But I see myself expanding that role and taking on more responsibilities as a senior.”

Her advice to her teammates is to keep pushing forward.

“Don’t get discouraged. If we lose a game, or two, it’s OK. Keep going forward,” she said, and then added that the same advice can be applied to the program. “If you are enjoying soccer, keep doing it. Don’t let the fact that it’s not super popular discourage you. Have fun with it.”
