Last week, United Soccer Coaches announced the High School Scholar All-America Teams for the 2017-18 school year, with 82 male and female student-athletes from around the nation receiving the honor.
Bishop Lynch graduate Chase Malone '18 was on that short list, receiving major recognition for her work in the classroom as well as on the pitch.
"I feel this award is the highest individual award a high school soccer player can receive because it represents an elite level of playing ability while maintaining a rigorous academic commitment that Bishop Lynch High School embodies," said women's soccer coach Darrin Hedges. "Chase is at the top of her class in academics, one of the top players ever in our program and the perfect ambassador for what a Bishop Lynch student-athlete should strive to be."
Malone won a state championship as a freshman and bounced back from a major knee injury to receive 1stTeam All-State, 1stTeam All-District and District Defensive Co-MVP honors as a senior. Malone spearheaded a defense that allowed just 25 goals, helping the Friars finish 19-6-2 overall and advance to the Final Four in TAPPS Division I.
