Katie Leonard, a sophomore, plays for the Seaforth girls’ soccer team.


Seaforth girls’ soccer’s Katie Leonard earns athlete of the week honors for the week of May 27.

In No. 4 seeded Seaforth’s state title victory over top-seeded Pine Lake Prep, Leonard, a sophomore goalkeeper, kept the Hawks alive with stellar play in the net. The Pride sent constant shots Leonard’s way throughout the game, and she saved every one that came her way in regulation, even the ones shot at her from close range.

During the penalty kick shootout, Leonard knocked in a PK herself while making the final save in the ninth round to set up Elizabeth Platt for the winning score. Leonard was named the 2A state championship game MVP following the win.
