Newton girls place five on all-conference soccer squad

Freese leads LHC with 69 saves in conference play

Natalee Freese

Senior Natalee Freese and the Newton girls’ soccer team posted a shutout win and allowed just one goal in another conference match this spring.

But Freese was busy as the Cardinals goalie in the other four matches and her 69 saves led the Little Hawkeye Conference and allowed her to earn second team all-conference honors.

Aliviah Ross

Freese was joined on the second team by senior defender Alex Garvis and sophomore forward Aliviah Ross. Seniors Cailyn Doland and Estella Allen were honorable mention selections.

All-conference honors are based on statistics inside conference play only.

The Cardinals were 1-5 in conference play this past season with the win coming against Oskaloosa.

In that contest, Doland scored three goals to lead Newton in conference matches. Ross finished with two goals and Doland added one assist.

Alex Garvis

Freese, Garvis and Allen led the defense to one shutout win and the 1-0 loss to Indianola.

Freese had 26 saves against state-ranked Norwalk, 19 against state-ranked Pella and 18 against Indianola.

Dallas Center-Grimes won the Class 2A state title this spring, while Norwalk and Pella also spent all season ranked in the top five. The Lady Dutch joined the Mustangs at the state tournament.
