Fighting Irish News · Experienced, Talented Irish Look to Build on Success

The Cathedral High School Lady Irish soccer team enters the 2015 season ranked 17th in the Indiana Soccer Coaches Association pre-season poll. The Lady Irish are coming off a regional performance Coach Marc Behringer called possibly “just as memorable” as the 2007 and 2009 Lady Irish State Championships he has coached. The team played several games into the season last year without key players and had to overcome numerous injuries, but again advanced to the regional where they fell to their opponent on penalty kicks for the second year in a row.

The team returns many crucial players, including Seniors Sophia Lipka (All-American Watch List, ISCA All-District, Jr./Sr. Showcase, and 2nd Team All-State) and Nicole Shoaf (City All-Tournament Team, ISCA All-District, Jr./Sr. Showcase, and Honorable Mention All-State). Other returning seniors include Casey and Claire Beidelman, Hannah Brennan, Libby Hendricks, and Jackie Mooney. Sophomore Maggie Carter also returns having been named to the City All-Tournament Team. The 2015 season is also Coach Behringer’s 20th as Cathedral’s head girls soccer coach.

“The coaches are looking forward to a wonderful season,” comments Coach Behringer. “Senior leadership has been outstanding and the overall talent level on the team is as high

as it has ever been.  Returning a large number of experienced players will be beneficial as the team attempts to build on the success of last season.”

The Lady Irish hold the longest current streak of IHSAA Girls Soccer Sectional Championships at 10, and look to capture the Indianapolis city title for the 16th time in the 18 year history of the City Tournament.
The Lady Irish soccer team kicks off their season at home against #7 Noblesville on Monday, August 17 and #5 Avon on Wednesday, August 19. Start times 5:30 PM for JV and 7 PM for Varsity. Senior night is planned for Wednesday, September 9 vs. Roncalli.

2015 Opponent Overviews

Lawrence Central – The Bears were 4-7 in 2014. Their losses came to teams who finished the season with a combined record of 58-18 (.763) including Class 6A tournament champion Ben Davis and runner-up Carmel. LC will be led by senior running back Gerrid Doaks who rushed for 1,242 yards and 15 touchdowns last season. The Irish have a 7-4 record in the all-time series with the Bears.

Cincinnati Archbishop Moeller – The Crusaders have won the last two outings against the Irish after Cathedral had won the previous three games in the series. Moeller finished the 2014 season with a 10-4 record, losing in the post-season for the first time in three years. Quarterback Thomas MacVittie has verbally committed to play college football at the University of Pittsburgh.

Mishawaka – The Cavemen were 9-3 in 2014, suffering regular season losses to Class 6A schools Crown Point and Penn before losing the 5A sectional final to eventual state tournament runner-up LaPorte. The Irish defeated the Cavemen in the 2012 Class 4A state title game. Mishawaka could have dropped to Class 4A in football this season according to its enrollment, but chose to remain in Class 5A.

Indianapolis Bishop Chatard – The Trojans will return to Class 3A this season after competing in Class 4A the past two years due to the IHSAA success factor. In 4A, Chatard had its state record of 12 consecutive regional titles end and, last season, lost in the sectional round for the first time since 2000, a string of 40 consecutive wins. The Trojans finished with an 8-3 record in 2014 including a 28-20 loss to the Irish.

Cincinnati St. Xavier – The Bombers were 10-3 in 2014 losing to Archbishop Moeller in the Division I quarterfinal round of the Ohio state tournament. St. X shut out the Irish 27-0 last season at Lucas Oil Stadium. It was the first time Cathedral had not scored in a game since 2004. Junior quarterback Sean Clifford will lead St. X. He threw for 159 yards and two touchdowns against the Irish as a sophomore.

Rhea County (Evensville, Tennessee) – The Golden Eagles were 13-1 in 2014, reaching the Class 5A (second largest class) semifinals in the TSSAA state tournament. Rhea County fell behind in the game 28-0, but fought back to tie the score 28-28 before losing on a touchdown pass with just 13 seconds remaining. The Eagles were 10-2 in 2013.

Fishers – The Irish have never faced the Tigers in varsity football during the regular season or IHSAA tournament play. Fishers was 7-4 a year ago. Head Coach Rick Wimmer is sixth on the list of most wins among active coaches in Indiana with 234. This is the tenth anniversary season for the school which first played football in 2006, winning the Class 5A state title in 2010.

Brebeuf Jesuit – This will be the first meeting between the Irish and the Braves since 2002. Cathedral is riding a six-game winning streak against Brebeuf and holds a 13-3 lead in the all-time series dating back to 1971. The Braves are coached by former Cathedral assistant Mic Roessler (1999-2012). Brebeuf was 7-4 in 2014 after advancing to the Class 3A title game in 2013.

Center Grove – The Trojans defeated the Irish in 2014 on the way to a 9-and-4 record. It was the first meeting between the two schools since 1992. Cathedral leads the all-time series 2-1. Center Grove has advanced to the semi-state round of the IHSAA state tournament four consecutive seasons. Senior Defensive Tackle Jovan Swann already has scholarship offers from seven Big Ten schools.
