June 1, 2016 — The all-time points record has (we think) fallen

Soph Turchetta, the senior midfielder from Harvard Bromfield School (Mass.) had a seven-goal, one-assist performance yesterday afternoon against Chicopee Pope Francis (Mass.) in the Trojans’ first-round win in the MIAA Division II Central/West tournament.

The output has given her an all-time record of 767 combined goals and assists for her five-year varsity career, surpassing current Northwestern sophomore Corinne Wessels, who had 765 combined goals and assists in her four years at Manassas Osbourn Park (Va.).

Now, there’s a certain degree of uncertainty here, given the fact that Turchetta was on varsity during seventh grade (yep, all the way back in 2011), but the numbers she recorded that season are, as yet, unknown, given the fact that season was two coaches’ ago.

In addition to breaking Wessels’ mark, Turchetta reached her 100th goal of this season in the playoff win over Pope Francis. She now has 100 goals in five consecutive varsity seasons, a record which may never be equaled.

Bromfield will take on the winner of the match between Lunenberg (Mass.) and Dalton Wahconah Regional (Mass.) in the quarterfinal round.
