Athlete Of The Week: Holy Redeemer’s Annie Bagnall
Holy Redeemer junior Annie Bagnall scored a lot of goals over the first two years of her Royals career, and it paid off early this season, as her third goal in Thursday’s game against Wyoming Seminary put her at No. 100.
For her achievement, Annie was selected The Citizens’ Voice athlete of the week.
Was it a relief to surpass 100?
Yes, the building up to it was kind of stressful.
What it was like to be able to celebrate that with your teammates?
It was fun, everyone was happy for me.
Do you have some other goals now that you’ve reached 100?
Districts is the next goal, but we have to take it one game at a time.
What do you think it will take to get to the district final?
Hard work, dedication from everyone on the field, lots of teamwork. That’s the most important.
The team’s been playing really well. Do you feel like the program’s been growing over your last few years?
Yeah, we’ve gotten a lot better, and we all could still get even better than we are.
What’s been clicking this year?
I don’t know, our team this year is really well-bonded, and that’s rare. It’s helping us on the field. There’s no, “I’m not gonna pass to this person.” Anyone will pass to anyone.
