Rothert breaks Woodmore soccer record

Andrew Barringer

The Woodmore girls’ soccer team has one particular athlete who has been shining on the soccer field this year, senior Claire Rothert. Rothert recently broke the record for most goals in a career at 79, formerly held by Taylor Avers at 76.
Rothert has been playing soccer for Woodmore since she was a freshman, and she scored enough goals along the way to become the new record holder. “I had no idea I was even close to the record until this season,” said Claire.
Her success on the soccer field is owed in part to her dedication to the team. “I am motivated to do well in soccer because I know my team needs me, so I always have to give it my all every second I am on the field,” she said. She contributed to many of the girls’ team wins: scoring four goals against Riverdale and Otsego and three against Port Clinton.
Rothert was also recognized for her hard work and skills by being named 13 ABC’s Athlete of the Week in early October. She was also named Alan Miller Jewelers All-Press Co-Player of the Year and Northern Buckeye Conference Player of the Year, plus she earned first team all-district and second team All-Ohio.
The Woodmore girls soccer team finished the season 7-9-1 overall.
Claire Rothert is now the all-time leading goal scorer in Wood­more history, and she acknowledges she has had a strong team behind her. Two other players had an exceptional season as well. Junior Autumn Beaudoin broke the assists per game record with 6 as well as the career assists record for Woodmore at 21. Senior Phoebe Jackson earned the career saves record with 494 and 26 career shutouts.
The soccer program was under the direction this year of first year head coach Lauren Colangelo.
