Athlete of the Week:  Amanda Strahm

The thing about soccer is that it’s a low scoring game, by and large. When Brazil lost to Germany 7-1 back in the 2014 World Cup the six-goal margin indicated a loss of monumental proportions.

Of course that game was at one of the very highest levels of the sport. At the high school level, it’s much less of a shock for one team to hang crooked numbers on another, but even so the 20-6 margin the Holtville girls’ soccer team has enjoyed over their past five has to qualify as pretty good.
