With a new group of girls trying to gel together and play as a team, head coach Rick Adolph looks to break in the new soccer complex on campus at the beginning of the 2019 Girls’ Soccer season. After years of sharing a facility with the football program, OHS was able to build a soccer stadium on the south end of the property. Now that the fence is up, the goals are set, the grass is green and the lines are painted, all that is left is for our great OHS students to sit hillside and support our Lady Owls.
