Last month, sophomore Sara Jacobs helped Johns Creek High School’s varsity girls soccer team win the state championships. Jacobs, who anchored the team’s backline, helped the team to a record of 20 wins and one loss, only giving up nine goals all season, including 17 games with no goals given up.
Jacobs was the only sophomore on the team this year, as well as the only freshman last year. Playing outside back, she has been a two-year starter for the JCHS varsity team, including when it played rival Cambridge High School in the finals. JCHS won 2-0 in the 6A championship game.
Jacobs told the AJT, “After setting the goal in the beginning of the season to win state, we were determined and worked hard every day at practice. Once we won, I couldn’t actually believe we did it. After five months straight of hard work, it all paid off and we ended up champions.”
