To go along with their team successes in 2015, the Harlem boys and girls soccer squads pulled in top individual honors as well.
At the top of the list is Lady Bulldog Katie Essick, who was named the Region 3-AA Offensive Player of the Year.
Essick had 38 goals and 11 assists heading into the Lady Bulldogs’ (12-4) first-round game in the GHSA Class AA state playoffs against Bleckley County. She showed why she was the offensive player of the year as she added three goals, helping the team advance to the second round. She was somewhat surprised by the honor.
