Destiny Schmidt and Wisconsin Heights' girls soccer team have raced to a 6-1 start.

The Wisconsin Heights/Barneveld girls soccer team improved to 6-1 after a pair of wins last week.

The Vanguards defeated Lakeside Lutheran, 4-1, last Monday. Heights also toppled Lake Mills, 2-0, last Tuesday.

The Vanguards are also 4-0 in the Southern Capitol Conference.

In Heights' win over Lakeside, senior co-captain Karlee Adler opened the scoring with a free kick goal from 25 yards out. Senior co-captain Sammie Bollig later gave Heights/Barneveld a 2-0 lead with a deflected ball off a Lakeside Lutheran defender.

Sophomore Kassidy Frame closed out first half by dribbling through several Lutheran defenders and beat the goalie to give the Vanguards a 3-0 lead. Bollig closed out the scoring with penalty kick goal after junior Brenda Rettenmund was brought down in the box.

The following night, Heights/Barneveld notched an important Capitol Conference win over Lake Mills.

Junior Emma Leece scored 12 minutes into game, falling to the ground while shielding off a Lake Mills defender. Brenda Rettenmund assisted on the play.

Later, Frame beat the goalie in lower right corner off a pass from sophomore Natalie Hering.

The Vanguards' game at River Valley last Wednesday was suspended due to the thunderstorms. Prior to the storms, Heights/Barneveld had built a 5-0 lead.

Sophomore Kelsey Handel had a pair of goals and Frame had a goal and three assists. Freshman Gwen Childs and Rettenmund also added goals.

"Even with the shortened game, I really liked our offensive pressure," Heights coach Bartlett Holmes said. "Our speed and much improved passing resulted in our successful finishes."
