Soccer - Girls - Varsity
- Mercersburg fielded its first girls’ soccer team in 1990, though Mary Curtis ’86 actually set the standard for the program five years earlier, when she earned the starting goalie position on the boys’ team in 1985. Curtis went on to play collegiately and was the head coach at Holy Cross. The Curtis-VerStandig Soccer Award is awarded annually to the Mercersburg player who makes the most outstanding contributions to the team.
- The varsity team has won five IPSL championships since the league was founded in 2011. Recent alumni have competed at the NCAA Division I level, including at Furman University and Idaho State University. The schedule features high-level competition in the Mid-Atlantic Prep League and regionally against some of the top programs in West Virginia and the greater Washington, D.C. area.
- Two of the school’s 11 athletic fields are dedicated to training and competition for the girls’ soccer program. Upper Field, the primary competition venue for the varsity team, is a full-size, natural-grass facility equipped with in-ground irrigation.
