MECHANICSBURG — While Loren Gehret draws a lot of attention for the Southern Columbia girls soccer team, the defense has been a large reason that the Tigers have won three straight PIAA Class 1A Championships.

After Gehret completed a hat trick, giving Southern a 4-2 lead with just more than 35 minutes remaining, junior goalie Quinn Johnston came up with some crucial saves as the Bulldogs got close on multiple occasions.
