When the Oak Hall girls soccer team first took to the field for the 1995-96 season, the Eagles scored only one goal the entire year.

When this year's senior captain and reigning Sun Small-School Player of the Year Katie Roark joined the squad for the 1997-98 season, Oak Hall was outscored 55-14.

This week alone though, the Eagles found the back of the net 24 times in three 8-0 wins, improving to 13-5 on the season, while outscoring opponents 91-17.

After entering the season with a school-best 70 career goals, Roark has added 30 more in her senior campaign, including six this week to reach the 100-goal mark for her career.

Next on the list is freshman standout and 2002 Sun first-teamer, Liz Theurer, who finished the week with 61 career goals.

"Katie is attacking more and playing off the ball," Oak Hall coach Basil Benjamin said. "She can score a lot, but she has been doing so much else for us too. She's also doing a tremendous job heading our team and helping the younger players feel more comfortable."
