Kaitlin Phenix healthy for Montgomery Academy

Kaitlin Phenix couldn’t help but think back to last season.

That April, in the second round of the Class 4A-5A playoffs at UMS-Wright, Montgomery Academy girls soccer’s leading scorer tore her right ACL. Tuesday, Phenix took the field in the second round once again.

But she wasn’t worried about what would happen if history repeated itself.

“We prepared ourselves pretty well,” Phenix said. “I know my teammates. … If anything were to go down, they’d have my back.”

Everything went accordingly this time. Phenix scored a goal and assisted on another in a 3-0 win over St. Michael Catholic, sending the four-time defending state champion Eagles (15-2-1) through to the state quarterfinals, where they’ll take on St. James this weekend (date and time TBD).
