Congratulations to the Lady Cru soccer team on a successful season. The team finished as District champions and Regional runners-up.
The Crusaders’ post-season run came to an end on Saturday when the Cru fell to the NDA Pandas in the Regional finals at Dixie Heights High School. The Crusaders fell behind early and were never able to gain any traction. They lost 6 – 0.
The trip to the finals came after the Lady Cru defeated the Bluebirds from Highlands in a nailbiter game that went into overtime and eventually came down to penalty kicks. The winning goal was made by Erin Cheek and was captured on video by James Weber for the Cincinnati Enquirer.

The team advanced to the Regional tournament after defeating the Dixie Heights Colonels 3 – 1 and taking home the District championship trophy. Erin Cheek was awarded the tournament Most Valuable Player award and Cori Riegler and MacKenzie Kent were both named to the All Tournament team.
Congratulations ladies on a great season. Go Cru!
