Photos: Dayspring Christian girls’ soccer falls to Fresta Valley in triple overtime
Competing in the Virginia Association of Christian Athletics league, Blacksburg’s Dayspring Christian finished a great season with a tough loss to defending VACA state champion Fresta Valley (Warrenton). The Lions (12-5-1) suffered a 2-1 loss in triple overtime when Fresta Valley scored a break-away goal three minutes into the first golden-goal period. The Lions, who finished second in the VACA South Region, were eliminated by Fresta Valley in the state tournament for the second-straight season, both overtime losses.
Dayspring was led this season by several young players, including freshmen starters Leah Hairfield, Geneva Hutchinson, Christina Ribbens, Anna Fagan and eighth-grader JoHannah Buehrer. The Lions only lose one starter from this season’s team and hope to come back strong in 2013.

- Freshman Leah Hairfield – first-team all-Southwest District, first-team all-South Region, and first-team all-State
- Eighth-grader JoHannah Buehrer – first-team all-Southwest District, first-team all-South Region, and second-team all-State
