Girls varsity soccer has the best DCL season in years

The girls varsity soccer team had a successful season this fall, making the state tournament and having the best Dual County League record in years. The team's DCL season record was 9-8-2, seven losses of which were by a one-goal margin, due to the great defense played by Concord goalie Julie Gray. The team made the twelfth seed in the state tournament, and played a tough first game against the fifth-seed team Lincoln-Sudbury in the first round. Four Carlisle girls were on the year's varsity team, senior Tara Callahan, junior Sam O'Keefe, sophomore Elise Lehotsky and freshman Lisa DeBruzzi. Callahan was on the varsity team for four years and played starting stopper and outside back after her teammate Whitney Sharp got injured. Callahan was a versatile player as well as a great team leader. O'Keefe has played on the varsity team for two years now and was one of this season's leading goal scorers. She will be a co-captain of next year's team. Lehotsky was on the team for her first year and played midfield. DeBruzzi was one of the two freshmen to make it on the varsity team this season, playing back.
