"It literally made me cry because that's my first goal in high school," the North Mason senior said. "I normally play defense, but Coach Mitch (James) likes to play two defenders up for cor- ner kicks. It was really exciting. Prob- ably the on-field highlight of my high school career." The moment was even more special for Engel because she knows her team- mates helped. "When I'm forward, all the girls make it a point to try to get the ball to me because they know it's important to me," Engel said. "I thought it was im- possible." The goal happened in the 16th minute of Engel North Mason's game against Kingston on Oct. 7 at Phil Pugh Stadium. "I'd love to score again, of course. Who doesn't love scoring?" Engel said. "I can definitely go out of this soccer sea- son proud to say I scored as a defer/der." Engel began playing soccer through the South Mason Youth Soccer Club when she was in first or second grade, she said. "I love the sport and it kind of runs in the family," Enget added. "My mom still plays. We sometimes play together in an indoor league. My dad played. My little brother was interested in it for a while." Although Engel and her mother aren't official players for any singular indoor soccer league, she said they oc- casionally receive calls or texts from players asking them to sub in at the Olympic Soccer Center in Bremerton. Engel described indoor soccer as a faster-paced game with more scoring. "I really like the outdoor soccer, but it's fun to play indoor sometimes,~ she said. As an indoor player, Engel often plays as a forward. Although she doesn't have definite plans to continue playing the sport, En- gel is considering her options. "Coach Mitch actually talked to the Olympic College Bremerton coach about me and that could give me a spot there if I decide to continue going to school there," Engel said. For the past two years, Engel has been a full-time Running Start student at Olympic College. She is on track to graduate in the June with an Associate of Arts degree. see ATHLETE, page B-5
