    Tawny Stowell Signs with Southwestern Christian

    tawny-stowell-logan-rogersville-soccer
    Logan-Rogersville’s Tawny Stowell signed her National Letter of Intent to play soccer at Southwestern Christian University in Bethany, Okla., recently. The South County Mail offers a nice story on the decision and opportunity the senior has to look forward too.

    The four-year starter has been a part of 35 wins with the Lady Wildcats, including back-to-back winning seasons. She’s pictured above on the right (#22) after scoring against Marshfield in 2011.

    Rogersville head coach Brett Wubbena was excited to see his player have the opportunity to continue her career, but, he said, “it’ll be hard to see her go. We’ve had her since she was a freshman, and she’s gotten better every year. (This is) well deserved,” Wubbena said.

    Perhaps the biggest of those 35 wins was a 1-0 victory over last year’s Class 1 state champions Springfield Catholic, in which Stowell scored the winning goal. If not the biggest, it’s certainly the most memorable of Stowell’s career in Wubbena’s mind. Read more about Tawny’s adventures

    Evan Loyd, Evan Garrad and Evan Craig Sign For College

    Springfield SC U11, Gateway Classic 2004
    Champions U11, Gateway Classic, September 2004. 1st tournament after merger of United, Soccer Select, and Cobras.

    An opportunity to look back while looking forward. First, check out this early Springfield SC U11 squad with their Gateway Classic championship trophies from September 2004. This was the first tournament they played as U11’s after the merger of three Springfield teams; Springfield United, Springfield Soccer Select, and Todd McCutcheon’s Cobras. Thanks to Duane Moses for sharing the photo and Debbie Loyd for helping me pull this together. Now I need some more help, let’s complete this roster.

    Back Row: Elliott Williams, Taylor Pedigo, Josh McCutcheon, Jakob Neidig, Evan Garrad, Evan Loyd, Robbie Oslica
    Center Row: ?, ?, ?, ?, Danny Renner
    Front Row: Dallas Moses, ?, Drew Kennedy, Evan Craig, Matt Call, ?

    The three Evan’s of the SSC 94 Red Team… Evan Garrad, Evan Craig and Evan Loyd will all be playing next year in the GLVC. Garrard at UMSL, Craig at Rockhust, and Loyd at Bellarmine. They began playing together on a U8 Team, coach by Rich Garrard and Tim Flavin, known as Springfield Soccer. Then on and off for years together on the SSC 94 Red team.

    Evan Craig, who joined the #1 ranked Raytown Billy Goat squad after helping Springfield SC win the State Title in 2011. The team lost to SLSG Elite in the 2012 Final but as noted go into this season ranked first in the State, as the defending champion SLSG Elite squad has joined the NPL and will not compete in State Cup this Spring/Summer.

    He was named to the Class 1 All-State 1st Team and 1st Team All-Ozarks in 2012 .Evan is also a member of the Region 2 ODP Team. He was named to the Region 2 roster for the 2012 Boys NCAA Interregional which took place in Birmingham Al, in December 2012. He is still using the trophy pictured to hang the many medals he’s earned.

    Evan Garrad joins the UMSL Tritons from Glendale and Springfield SC. A captain for the young Falcons, he moved into a central midfield role this year following three years on defense. The Falcons earned a District title before falling to Kickapoo in the Sectional game. Evan was named to the Class 3 Southwest Region 1st team and All-Ozark Conference 1st Team as well.

    The Tritons reached the GLVC Championship last year, falling to Rockhurst. I know he’s got some academic chops and UMSL offers a nationally recognized school of optometry that is being considered.

    Evan Loyd, goalkeeper for the Greenwood Blue Jays, also earned a State Championship with Craig and Garrad with Springfield SC. He’s since moved to Total Demize SC where he’s been honing his craft, including the recently competed Futsal Regional Tourney. Evan was named to the Class 1 All-State 2nd Team along with Southwest Regional honors.

    He joins the Bellarmine Knights, who finished 4th in the GLVC in 2012 on a team with a large St Louis influence. Bellarmine is located in Louisville, KY.

    All three players have been named to the 2013 All-Star game roster as well.
