By Ryan Brockschmitt

The 1998 Trojanette Varsity girls soccer team had a tremendous season that included breaking or matching 5 team records and 2 individual records before losing to Ft. Zumwalt North in district play on May 19.

The girls had the best record in school history at 7 wins, 12 loses, and 4 ties. 4 of their loses came against area powerhouses in Francis Howell, Francis Howell North, Duchesne, and St. Charles West and 1 of their ties came against eventual GOTC champion Lutheran-St. Charles. The 7 wins were the most in the history of the program. Their record earned them the 4th seed in the district tournament, which was the highest ever for the program.

The team also broke the records for most goals in a season with 34 and most assists in a season with 22. The two individual records were both accomplished by junior midfielder Brooke Nett. Nett scored 11 goals on the season to beat the old record by 2 goals and tied Jessie Wren's record for most assists in a season with 6.
