---- — The Lebanon Tigers girls soccer team did everything they wanted to Wednesday night when they hosted Frankfort in a Sagamore Conference match-up. Lebanon jumped out to a 4-0 first-half lead, allowing them to play all their seniors big minutes in the second half. The Tigers then cruised to the 4-0 win on Senior Night. "I am super happy for the girls, every single one of the them," Lebanon head coach Rachel Becker said. "We have been fighting through a great season and we have been working really hard. We had two girls get their first goals of the season today in Carli Leavitt and Nora Wornhoff so that was exciting. Just to see all the seniors out on the field together was really great. It was good to see the girls come out strong and do some things we have been working on too; overall, it was just a fun night." Before the game, Lebanon honored its eight seniors: Stephanie Smith, Toni Perez, Destiny Muniz, Gaaelya Colligan, Kylin Schoeff, McKenzie Lawrence, Sierra Dale, Madison Newby and Tarissa Abraham. Becker had nothing but good things to send about the group. "These seniors have so much heart and character," Becker said. "They have really led a mission in terms of friendship and camaraderie on this team. None of them are hot shots or in it for themselves — they really love the team, giving to the team and mentoring the team. To have nine girls that act like that is a blessing."
