The Wilde Lake boys and girls soccer teams brought home a joint victory in the state semi-final games against Mt.Hebron and Chesapeake High this past Saturday.

In the boys 2-1 victory against Mt. Hebron High, junior Ousman Touray scored both goals in the 2nd half. Junior Tyriq Umrani said, “It’s great. We haven’t won a state final since 1998. So for us to even be in a state final is a great achievement”, he said.

In the girls 1-1 victory (5-3 in penalty kicks) game against Mount Hebron, junior Aicha Wilson scored the leading goal in the first half, with senior Angie Geralis scoring the winning penalty kick. “It feels pretty surreal. We’ve never gotten this far before. It felt like years ago that the program make it to states and came up short, so we are really hoping to win this one”.
