DID YOU KNOW Patrick ran the third leg on the Lady Mounties' Class 7A state champion mile relay team this season. Three has been a special number for a long time for Patrick, going back to her father's love for NASCAR superstar Dale Earnhardt. She also wears jersey number three in soccer. The Lady Mounties also ran in lane three in the mile relay finals at the state meet.

QUOTABLE "I've always wanted to play soccer since I was four. I know that's really young, but I've always loved it. It's always been serious with recruitment and everything. I just got to enjoy it this year. Rogers is just so great; they build great teams. It's a family atmosphere, and I made best friends there" Patrick said.

DID YOU KNOW Haley played on a team for the first time with her sister, Payton, who will continue her soccer career at Kentucky.

SCHOOL Siloam Springs

THE SCOOP Crenshaw guided the Lady Panthers to the program's fifth straight Class 6A state girls soccer championship in 2018, with the last three coming under his leadership. ... Siloam Springs defeated Benton 1-0 to win the 2018 6A state championship. ...

Siloam Springs is 59-14-3 (.776) in three years under Crenshaw. ...

His overall record as soccer coach at Siloam Springs is 112-33-7 (.737). ... Crenshaw was All-NWADG Girls Soccer Coach of the Year in 2016 after leading the Lady Panthers to the state title that season.

He also started as center midfielder for the soccer team and participated in running and field events for the track team.

QUOTABLE "I believe we're in this together as coaches and players. It can't be a battle coaches versus players. At end of day I have to make tough decisions. We all have the same goal. That's what's been really good about this group is we've had the same goal to win the last three years. Whatever we needed to do, the girls have done. It hasn't always been easy. They haven't always agreed with me, but we've all had the same goal. They just had to trust in me that I made the right decisions for the team," Crenshaw said.
