Clinton High School girls soccer coach Suzanne Stout knew that she had a rebuilding project with the Lady Dragons in 2022.
It’s been rough as Clinton (3-5-1, 0-3 in District 5-AA) but the coach has hopes that the team can pick up some late wins as the regular season enters its home stretch.
“We have a young and inexperienced team and things got tougher because we had some injuries,” Stout said. “But our girls are working hard and we have some games left and I think four of those are winnable games and we can have a winning season.”
In their last match, the Lady Dragons dropped a 9-0 decision against Kingston on Tuesday, Sept. 20.
Clinton will be the No. 4 seed in the district tournament and it will have a rematch against crosstown rival and regular-season champion Anderson County.
Before the District 5-AA Tournament, the Lady Dragons have regular-season non-league games against J. Frank White, South-Doyle, Fulton and Lenoir City.
“Some of those games are winnable games but the Lenoir City game will be tough,” Stout said.
