Kylie Powell: Athlete of the Week

Posted:
LA PORTE CITY (KWWL) -

After a freshman season that garnered a 1st team all-state selection, scoring 34 goals and ending as state runner-up, most sophomores would be content. But not Union's Kylie Powell; she strives to get better each day.

Union head coach Lizzie Zondo says, "A big part of our offense weather it was crossing the ball or scoring off crosses and she bring a ton of energy with really creative play, she's really good at penetrating the other teams defense, so she's well rounded and has a lot to offer."

Playing on a premiere team in Cedar Rapids that won the state cup last fall and since the age of 12 playing on the Iowa Olympic Development team, she was able to spend 15 days in China last summer.

"The experience was awesome." Kylie Powell says, "Totally different than here. The food wasn't the best but we had a lot of fun."

After the experience in China she and the Knights are ready for another run at a title this season.

"Were going to work hard, hope for the best, take one game at a time and hopefully get to state and praying for a win."
