Ludington Girls Soccer Looks to Defend Lakes 8 Activities Conference Title in 2022

LUDINGTON – The Ludington girls soccer team is coming off a solid season in 2021 after going undefeated in the Lakes 8 Activities Conference on their way to a conference title.

The Orioles capped off the year with a trip to the district semifinals where they fell to Fruitport 3-1.

With a new squad that features seven new players, the team said there will be plenty of learning to do in the first few weeks. Many of the girls were also on the basketball team that made it to this year’s Division 2 state semifinals.

“The experiences they had, what they learned, the pressure of the postseason. The leadership things that they gained from it, they can bring that. And that just makes your program stronger. Once we get some playing time and we kind of get together with each other, it’ll build as the season comes along,” said Ludington girls soccer head coach Kris Anderson.

“We have some really aggressive, talented girls on the defensive end and the offensive end. We have some freshmen that are in the middle now and they’re going to fill that gap that the seniors left. And we can have some success with scoring,” said Ludington senior Abi Bandstra.

After falling to Big Rapids 0-3 in the season opener, Ludington picked up its first win of the year against Tri-County,3-2, to move to 1-1 overall.

The Orioles will face Cadillac next on Wednesday, April 13 at 6:45 p.m. on their home field.
