The Elco girls’ soccer team has something special going on right now. And so does Kailey Eckhart.
As Eckhart goes, so go the Raiders.
This week, Eckhart continued to score goals, and Elco continued to win games. The tally: four Eckhart goals and three Raider victories.
On Thursday, the senior forward netted a pair of tallies in Elco’s 4-0 road win at Lancaster Mennonite. Then on Saturday, Eckhart scored both Raider goals in her team’s 2-0 triumph at Berks Catholic.
The strong week now has Eckhart challenging teammate Carsyn Boyer for the team lead in scoring. But most importantly, the 3-0 week has the Raiders steaming towards yet another Lancaster-Lebanon Section Three title and another District Three Class AAA playoff berth.
Eckhart and the Raiders are currently 11-2 on the fall and 7-1 in a section that they have finished first in each of the past six seasons. During her career at Elco, Eckhart has never not been a part of an L-L section championship.
During the winter season, Eckhart is also an accomplished scorer on the Elco girls’ basketball squad.
