CHS girls adjust to 4A, new strike force



At the head of that attacking push forward many times this season will be junior Tara Arnold. Goble said while she expects all of her team to rise to the occasion again this season, she's expecting Arnold to rack up plenty of goals.

"Tara Arnold is one I would throw out there as one of our offensive attackers," Goble said. "She's going to be my goal scorer, because of her speed, strength, and her want. But there's quite a few girls. They all do their job, and that makes us successful."

The Lady Chicks are dealing with a few injuries coming out of preseason, and depth could be an issue if that trend continues. Over her six years at Chickasha, Goble said she's seen them come up against teams closer to the city where there are more opportunities for year-round club soccer. She's developed a way to overcome this.

"We're probably not the best technically, we don't have many club players, but if they all do their job, that makes us successful," she said. "The year before we lost eight seniors, so I have no fear. It is hard. To fight these other teams is constant work, touch of a soccer ball, keeping them fit; that's our philosophy."
