Training with Tar Heels
Placeholder Image
After posting a 16-5 record and winning District 6-AAA last year, it’s hard to imagine the Warren County High School girls soccer team could do any better this upcoming year.If there was room for improvement though, a trip to the University of North Carolina to learn from legendary coach Anson Dorrance could surely bring out the best in the Lady Pioneers.Coach Todd Willmore and the majority of the Lady Pioneer varsity soccer team made the trip to Chapel Hill last week, spending five days working with the top college program in the country.Dorrance has coached North Carolina to 20 national championships in the last 28 seasons and the Lady Tar Heels have won the ACC championship 20 of the last 22 seasons.Just getting an invitation to the prestigious camp was a big honor for the Lady Pioneers. Warren County was one of only three school teams to attend the 20-team camp. The rest were national select teams, ranging from Colorado to New York and everywhere in between.A team from Canada added an international flavor to the event, which coach Willmore thought was an incredible experience for his squad.“It was a great opportunity for us to learn from the current UNC players and coaches, as well as former players and coaches from North Carolina who have branched out across the nation to work with other collegiate programs,” said Willmore.
