Lady Highlanders Advance to Region XVI Semifinals

The Forest Park women’s soccer team, after defeating Meramec 2-1 in the opening round of the Region XVI Tournament on Oct. 23, will face top-seeded St. Charles Community College in the tournament's semifinal round at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 29, at MCC-Blue River in Independence, Mo.

The Meramec match marked the third meeting between the schools this season, with each team earning a 1-0 victory during the regular season. The Lady Highlanders' victory in the regular season meeting gave them a conference win, while Meramec won the regular season match that counted toward the region standings. Meramec's victory earned the Magic the No. 4 seed and the chance to host No. 5 seed Forest Park in the opening round.

The first half was tightly played, with each team having numerous scoring chances. Meramec had a goal called back as the referee ruled that the Lady Highlander goalkeeper, Beth Hatley, had been fouled. The game was scoreless at halftime.

Meramec struck first in the second half, as Magic forward Amy Gaurino snuck behind the defense and scored to give the Magic a 1-0 lead. Forest Park answered back within seconds, as freshman Katie Morris poked a loose ball past the goalkeeper to tie the game 1-1. With 25 minutes left to go, Carrie Stone, the 2009 Co-Region Player of the Year, beat the last defender and calmly netted the game-winning goal for the Lady Highlanders. Hatley made some key saves down the stretch as Forest Park held on for the 2-1 win.

Stone has now scored in all four regional games the Lady Highlanders have played in the past two seasons -- all victories. In 2009, the Lady Highlanders were seeded fourth and won the tournament.

St. Charles and Forest Park met two times in the regular season, with St. Charles winning both games by scores of 2-0.

Women Win Home Opener

The Lady Highlanders opened the 2010 season with a convincing 7-0 win over Coffeyville, striking early and often en route to the win.

The Lady Highlanders poured in five first-half goals to take a commanding lead. Carrie Stone (St. Pius X), a 2009 All-America selection, notched the first goal of the year on a strike from just inside the goal box. Freshman Lauren Spina (Loyola Academy) added two first-half goals. Katie Morris (O’Fallon) and Erin Weilmuenster (McCluer North) also tallied goals in the first half. Freshman Erica Kaiping (Waterloo) scored both goals in the second half. Goalkeeper Beth Hatley (Mascoutah) earned the shutout.

STLCC-Forest Park’s Stone named NJCAA All-American

Almost a month after the Forest Park Lady Highlanders played their last game of the season, they are still making school history. The Highlanders captured their first Regional XVI title in 2009 and now can lay claim to their first ever All-American in the sport. Freshman Carrie Stone (St. Pius X) earned honorable mention on the NJCAA Women’s Division I Soccer All-America team. Stone, named co-player of the year for Region XVI, led the Lady Highlanders in scoring with 13 goals and four assists and tallied a goal in each of the Highlanders wins in regional play. Stone also was one of four Lady Highlanders named to the All-Region team and one of five to be named to the All-Conference team. Stone returns for the 2010 season for the Highlanders, as she and Region XVI Coach of the Year Juergen Huettner look to repeat last year’s success.

Lady Highlanders SIGN Waterloo’s Top PLAYER

Erica Kaiping from Waterloo High School signed a letter of intent to play soccer for the Lady Highlanders team. Kaiping led the Bulldogs in scoring last spring with 15 goals and 12 assists on a team that finished 18-4.

Kaiping marks the first signing of the Lady Highlander offseason for head coach Juergen Huettner. Huettner is ecstatic to add a quality scorer like Kaiping to his roster.

"I watched her play in high school last year and she immediately stood out" he said. "She has been on my radar for a long time and is one of the top recruits at Forest Park. We are very excited to sign such a fine student athlete.”

In Huettner’s first season at Forest Park, the team captured the school’s first-ever Region XVI championship and also accounted for the most wins (10) in the program’s history. Seven Lady Highlanders also received conference and regional accolades, three of whom will return to the team next year. Heading the list of returning players is All-American and Co-Region XVI Player of the Year Carrie Stone.

Congratulations to the Lady Highlanders on winning the 2009 Region XVI Championship
