Grace Neidhardt helped the Granite City Warriors girls’ soccer team get back on the winning track over the weekend at the St. Louis Soccer Classic at St. Joseph’s Academy in St. Louis.
The Granite City junior helped her team finish 3-0 in the 12-team tournament by scoring three goals. She scored a goal apiece in games against Fort Zumwalt East, Lafayette and Blue Valley Northwest (Kan.) The effort earned Neidhardt this week’s AdVantage News Athlete of the Week award.
With three goals in the St. Louis Soccer Classic, Neidhardt now has the team lead in goals with four. She also scored a goal against Triad on March 23 at GCS Ballpark.
Neidhardt is playing in her third season with the Granite City soccer team. Last year, she scored a team-high 10 goals to earn all-Southwestern Conference and all-sectional honors.
The Warriors improved to 3-2-3 with the three wins at the St. Louis Soccer Classic. Granite City won all of its contests by one goal, defeating Fort Zumwalt East 2-1, Lafayette 1-0 and Blue Valley Northwest 2-1.
