    Four seasons, four trips to the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Tournament.

    Those are all great accomplishments, especially for a program that before the recent surge, had very little success in girls’ soccer. The recent past, including last season’s 15-6-2 record, has been good for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles, but they are looking for more in 2016.
