Sophia Kerns



North Fort Myers Red Knights

The Red Knights’ leading goal-scorer netted a pair to lead North over Osceola, and another versus

Parish Community, to advance to the FHSAA 5A-3 Regional Championship.

“It felt great being able to help my team get back to the regional finals. We’ve come so far looking back at the beginning of the season to now. There isn’t any other team I’d want to spend my last season at North with. We’re coming into this part of the season the best we have been all year with confidence and a good mindset.”

Mariner Tritons

The senior stand-out helped the Tritons again return to the FHSAA 5A-3 Regional Championship with an assist in the opening round versus Seminole, and a two-goal, two-assist performance against Naples in the semifinal.

“We felt confident going into the game and felt ready. We had multiple players scoring an assisting on goals, which just speaks to our depth. But I’m really happy we came out and got on the scoreboard early.”
