[AWARDS] South Carolina-bound midfielder Koty Millard from South Carolina AAA champion Cardinal Newman School and
midfielder Lauren Lackey from Alabama Class 1A-4A champion Randolph School were named NSCAA/TopDrawerSoccer.com High School Players of the Week.
Millard, the 2012-13 Gatorade South Carolina Boys Soccer Player of the Year, led his team to a 20-6-2 record this past season and to the South Carolina AAA state championship. He had two goals and an assist in the semifinal game, followed by a hat trick in the final contest. Two of those hat-trick goals were in the final 119 seconds of overtime to win the state title.
Lackey was the most influential player on the field during her team’s playoff run at the midfield position. She also assisted on the game-winning goal in the Alabama Class 1A-4A State championship game and finished the season as Randolph’s leading scorer in goals, assists and points.
Lackey was selected as MVP for the state tournament and was also chosen to play in the AHSAA All-Star Game in Montgomery this summer.
