5/6/17 – Detwiler leads undefeated Archbishop Carroll to 10-9 win over Springfield-Delco

Watch Archbishop Carroll play, and it won’t take you long to find Katie Detwiler.
The Patriots’ junior midfielder embodies everything that a true midfielder is and rare are the times where you’ll see her coming off the field. She’s the one taking the draws for the reigning Catholic League champions, but she’s also taking pride in her defensive game and checking in as the Patriots’ No. 2 scoring option after 200-goal scorer Sam Swart. So, coming off the field? Eh, not happening.
“I get tired sometimes, but (Carroll coach Lorraine Beers) always teaches us to push through it,” Detwiler said after Carroll beat host Springfield-Delco, 10-9, in a battle of two of the area’s best Saturday at Halderman Field. “We do sprints almost every day. She prepares us for this to always be mentally ready.”
