Lady Ads rolling as Dresen mended
FHS girls soccer wins Rebelette Classic

With one of its top players mended after six months of severe pain ending in emergency surgery, Farragut Lady Admirals soccer also is mending on the field.

Outscoring four Tri-Cities area teams by a combined 17-0 to win the Rebelette Classic in Kingsport last weekend, the No. 8-ranked Lady Ads enter the week 9-3 overall.

I think Mindy Hopkins, M-C [Mary Catherine] Suhocki and Ruth Cook have been catalysts for us, FHS head coach Dennis Lindsay said.

Six consecutive shutouts by a combined score of 22-0 included two District 4-AAA wins earlier last week before the trip to Kingsport Friday-Sunday, Sept. 26-28.

Farragut opened with a 2-0 victory against co-host Dobyns-Bennett Friday, then smashed Tennessee High (Bristol) 6-0 early Saturday.

Next victim was Science Hill (Johnson City), by a 3-0 count, Saturday evening.

Farragut breezed to the crown by destroying co-host Sullivan South 6-0 Sunday.


Alyssa Dresen, FHS All-state midfielder/defender, returned to action in a 3-0 win against Lenoir City last week for the first time since her emergency surgery Aug. 17.

The energetic senior standout had been suffering off-and-on severe pain in her mid-section dating back to February, but continued to run track last spring and soccer until late summer.

The problem, which turned out to be a twisted internal organ caused by cysts and cutting off blood supply, was not discovered until an emergency room visit Aug. 17 that led to surgery a few hours later that saved the organ.

They originally thought it was a muscle [problem], Dresen said. Ive never been out of soccer this long in my life. It was a hard thing, but Im glad I didnt let myself get down. I pushed through it.

About her playing time versus LCHS, I was just so pumped to be back and ready to play, Dresen said. I was so excited cause Ive been waiting so long.

I had not even practiced fully, yet.

Junior standout defender Mary Catherine Suhocki added, I think Alyssa will definitely help the team.

Meanwhile, junior midfielder-defender Lauren Ward said she is out indefinitely with a knee injury.


Beating Lenoir City 3-0 Thursday, Sept. 25, at FHSs Bill Clabo Field/Farragut Stadium, the Lady Admirals were led by two Ashley Reveiz goals.

Suhocki added one goal, while assists came from Suhocki, Morgan Brandon and Dresen.

Lenoir City had but three shots in a 17-3 FHS edge.

Blanking Maryville 2-0 Tuesday, Sept. 23, at MHS, Reveiz and Rachael Clark provided all the necessary offense with unassisted goals.

Farragut outshot Maryville 14-10.
