Rep. Lynda Schlegel Culver (R-Northumberland/Snyder) welcomed members of the Warrior Run Girls Soccer team to the state Capitol on Tuesday, where they were honored by the Pennsylvania House of Representatives for capturing their first state championship title. 

“It is my great privilege to recognize this team of remarkable young ladies, their coaches and support staff for their remarkable victory to earn the Class A Girls Soccer Championship,” said Culver. “As we all know, championship seasons are never solo accomplishments. It takes a unified team effort to lead a group to the championship and bring home the trophy. Because of this, all of us here today are proud of each and every member of the Warrior Run Girls Soccer Team.” 

The Lady Warriors earned their first state title by defeating Sewickley Academy by a score of 4-0. Their overall record for the season was 21 wins, four losses and one tie. 

The girls, along with their coaches and volunteers, were recognized on the House floor during afternoon session and received House citations for their victory. 

Leading the team to their state title were Head Coach Jen Allen, Assistant Coach Alecia Gold and Volunteer Coaches Kelly Landis and Elle Hammeetman. Also offering assistance to this team of fine young ladies were Dayl Housner and Tim Haluck, scorers; Athletic Director Dave Hahn; and Principal Patti Cross. 

“On behalf of the House of Representatives, I extend our heartfelt congratulations to you all, as well as all those who assisted the team, upon your stellar season and championship victory,” Culver said during the citation presentation. “We commend you for skillfully using your abilities with unflagging dedication in pursuit of athletic excellence, and we offer best wishes for success in all your future endeavors. Congratulations!”
