Emily Monroe and the St. Dominic girls soccer team are on quite a run. The Crusaders are in the Final Four of the Class 2 State tournament after back-to-back wins last week. Both wins for St. Dominic came in impressive fashion—on May 22, the Crusaders won 6-0 and on May 26, the girls won 8-1. The offense has been pretty spread out among the team, but the biggest contributor last week was Emily Monroe. Against Union, Monroe netted two goals to pace the Crusaders' offense. In the next game against Visitation, Monroe was at it again. She scored another two goals, including the game-winner to put St. Dominic into the Final Four.
