The Dripping Springs High School girls' soccer team concluded an impressive season on April 18 with a 4-0 loss to Mansfield Legacy High School in the state tournament semifinal game held at Georgetown's Birkelbach Field. DSHS concludes its season with a 22-5-3 record. DSHS senior midfielder Jessica Carmichael and senior forward Zoe Flores were each selected to the Texas Association of Soccer Coaches State All-Tournament team for their efforts against Mansfield Legacy.


The Lady Tigers advanced to the state tournament after winning two games at the 5A-Region IV Tournament in Corpus Christi on penalty kicks. On Friday, April 12, in the regional semifinals DSHS and Gregory-Portland HS battled to a 2-2 tie during regulation time and the overtime periods, then DSHS outscored Gregory-Portland 4-2 on penalty kicks. On Saturday, April 13, the Lady Tigers faced Alamo Heights HS in the regional final match. After playing to a 1-1 tie through regulation and the overtimes, DSHS advanced to the state tournament 3-1 on penalty kicks.

Following the regional tournament, team members learned of the tornado that hit Franklin, Texas, on Saturday, to which one player had a personal connection. The team quickly assembled donations of bottled water and canned food to send to Franklin. It was loaded in a truck on Sunday and will be delivered to the town Monday morning, April 15.
