Darby Bailey-Sophomore
EHS Girls Soccer
We are excited to officially begin the Elkins High Athletes of the Week series! Hard to believe fall sport season is upon on us! This the first week, we head to the soccer field where sophomore Darby Bailey gets things “kick” started for us! Darby recorded the lone goal for the Lady Tigers as they traveled to Winfield WV and defeated a very good and historically strong Winfield team 1-0.
Darby found the net actually twice, but one was called back on a questionable offside penalty! But one was enough for the Lady Tigers as their defense and goal play helped secure the win! Congrats to Darby and the Tigers! We wish them continued success this season!
