TJCA soccer downs Highland Tech


GASTONIA — The Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy (TJCA) girls soccer team entered Monday’s game with Highland Tech needing a win to remain in a first-place tie with East Gaston in the 1A/2A Southern Piedmont Conference (SPC). Thanks to a strong effort, led by four different goal scorers, the Lady Gryphons did just that, beating Highland Tech 7-1. 

Selma McMurry scored three goals in the win, while Margaret Schweppe added two more. Kaitlyn Rowe and Sophie Smart were responsible for the other two goals as each scored once. 

The Lady Gryphons close out regular season play today at Bessemer City. TJCA would capture at least a share of the conference championship with a win.
