The Science Hill girls’ soccer team left for Murfreesboro on Tuesday morning where they will compete in the upcoming Class AAA state soccer tournament.

The Lady Hilltoppers were supposed to play in the state tournament last week, but wet weather pushed the tournament back one week. Science Hill qualified for state by scoring a 2-1 win over Powell back on Oct. 26. Megan Burleson and Ellie Luna provided goals for the Lady Hilltoppers, who head to the state tournament with a record of 19-3-1.

Science Hill will open play on Wednesday afternoon against Maryville. This marks the ninth trip to state for Science Hill’s girls, who won the regular-season title, the district tournament championship and the regional tournament title before their victory in the sectionals. A group of well-wishers gathered on Science Hill’s campus on Tuesday morning to help send off the Lady Hilltoppers in style.
