WARREN OH- Junior, Ava Yannucci of Howland has had a start to her career most could only dream of. Winning All District as a sophomore and countless other awards. Ava’s been the teams leading scorer this year and has been heavily depended on early in her career for a very good soccer school, It can be overwhelming for all that pressure to be on you as an athlete, but ava has been more then up for that challenge. Leading her team to a share of the conference last year as a sophomore she showed great humility when I asked about why she’s been able to be so dominant. Yannucci states a huge part of her success has been her team and the coaches who put her in that situation to succeed.
Howlands team this year is off to a great start being 8-2-2 in a really tough league. Big games coming up for them is GlenOak on 9/23 and Canfield on 10/2, Yannucci states “We have four tough conference opponents left to play, we’ve played all four teams already once this year, it’s going to come down to us staying focused and playing our game”. Howland is looking to win the conference for a second year in a row, the Tigers definitely have the talent to do so and we’ll be watching them closely as the season goes on.
