Considering Loren Gehret was recently named the first USCA Girls Soccer All-American in District 4 history and became Southern Columbia’s first two-time All-Stater in program history, selecting her as The News-Item’s Girls Soccer MVP was a no-brainer.
“It was a huge surprise,” Gehret recalled of finding out she was tabbed an All-American. “At first, I didn’t think it was real and to this day it still doesn’t. It’s such an awesome accomplishment, but none of this would have happened without the constant support from my coaches, teammates, friends, and family. I couldn’t be more thankful to be able to have this experience.”
