Sierra Parsons, the captain of the Foster High School girls soccer team, was voted the Seamount Athlete of the Year by the league’s soccer coaches.

The senior forward was also named to the all-league girls first team. This is Parson’s fourth year playing soccer for Foster.

Parsons is also an outstanding hurdler and runner in track who has competed at state.

The Bulldogs ended the soccer season 3-4 in league play and 5-9 overall.

Nashir Tura has coached Parsons for three seasons.

“Sierra Parsons distinguished herself by her personal hard work, but Sierra also earned much respect for her demonstrated ability to foster growth in her younger teammates,” Tura said.

“At the high school level it takes much courage to lead, and Sierra possessed such courage.”

Parsons was team captain her junior and senior years.

During her four-year career at Foster, Parsons scored 57 goals and made 18 assists.

Her statistics broken down by year:

• Freshman: 9 goals, 2 assists

• Sophomore: 8 goals, 6 assists

• Junior: 21 goals, 4 assists

• Senior: 19 goals, 6 assists

Parsons can play both defense and offense; this year she was especially called upon as a defender.

“She is fast, strong, skillful with the ball and she is a finisher on the goal,” Tura said. “Most importantly, she will always give you 100 percent.”
