With a 5–1 win against Agnes Scott College on Saturday, October 24, the Salem Spirits soccer team took home their fourth consecutive Great South Athletic Conference (GSAC) Regular Season Championship.
Six member of the Class of 2016 who have been on the team since their first year at Salem were celebrated at the game: Jocelyn Evans, of Newport News, VA; Jacqueline Hogg, of Centreville, VA; Heather Huffman, of Winston-Salem, NC; Sierra Hutchins, of Lexington, NC; Paige Ketchum, of Jacksonville, NC; and Summer Rich, of Morehead City, NC. These student-athletes have assisted in claiming the GSAC championship each year of their collegiate soccer careers, and finished their regular season career with a 23–1 record.
In the current season, the team is 12–2. Earlier this month, in a match against Wesleyan College, the Spirits won their tenth game. This marks the seventh straight year that they have won at least ten games. The Spirits are the only GSAC school and only Division III school in North Carolina to achieve this.
After winning a non-conference game against Roanoke College, the team will compete with Washington Adventist University and Trinity Washington University to wrap up the season.
