  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER PREVIEW: Fort Knox (08/15)



    Second-year Fort Knox girls’ soccer coach Liz Barnes knows it’s been a while since the Lady Eagles have won a 10th District game.

    Since picking up a 1-0 win over North Hardin on Sept. 9, 2002, the Lady Eagles are 0-53-1 against district competition. But with a solid mix of new and returning players, Barnes thinks her team can turn things around.

    An improved defense which allowed 61 goals last season is a big reason Barnes is optimistic the Lady Eagles will have a better season.
