The athletic department is proud to announce the hiring of Phillie Kealy. Mrs. Kealy will be playing a huge role for the students here at Highland, as she will not only coach girls’ soccer but will also play a significant role in the Physical Education department. Highland is excited to have Mrs. Kealy join both the faculty and the athletic department.
A brief background of Coach Kealy:
Coach Kealy comes to Highland from Southern California. Phillie graduated high school in 2013, where she was a standout athlete in numerous sports including soccer. After graduating high school Mrs. Kealy continued her athletic ambitions in college by playing a key role in both cross country and track at California State University, San Bernardino.
Post-graduation from university, Mrs. Kealy lived in New Zealand for a year where she was able to explore outdoor activities like surfing, snowboarding, mountain biking and white water kayaking. Upon departure, Phillie set her eyes on teaching and coaching. This is where she decided to move to Ogden, for both the landscape and the teaching opportunities. Mrs. Kealy and her husband, are settling in and absolutely love being so close to the mountains.

The final score of today’s game ended up 8 – 0 for Mount Ogden. I feel as a team we did much better this game at communicating and this showed at the end of the first half with the score being 2-0. We took a total of 10 shots on goal and Stephani had 20 saves. The B team did good as well. They are learning as they play more and more each time. They are gaining experience. I am proud of the work the girls are putting in.
Our girls unfortunately fell to Syracuse and despite not having enough subs the entire team came together and learned to play on the go. Our keeper was great! For being her first time ever playing, she looked like a pro! I am so proud of everyone. I thought the second half was much better. We were able to understand our formation and how to cover for each other. We are excited for the season!
I Can, I Will, I Must!!!…. This was our motto for the year!
Last night our girls soccer team took on Mount Ogden in the semi-finals. It was a great game played by both teams, with Highland coming out on top 3-2. Highland jumped out to a quick 2-0, while Mount Ogden fought their way back to tie the game up at 2-2. Lindsey Cummins scored late in the second half to give the Hikers a 3-2 lead, and the girls were able to hold off a tough Mount Ogden team down the stretch for the win. Our girls will play Wednesday night at 4:15pm at HighMark for the championship.
I’m so proud of the girls they came out strong today, we played HighMark as equals!! The game was tied 0-0 by the end of first half the other coach did not know what to do, we got tired at second half and they out ran us on 2 of their goals. We had a total of 15 shots on goal vs their 9. Final score was 0-3
The B team played for 10 minutes each half, I pretty much had to beg the coach. They are doing well and are learning a lot.
