“This is my last year playing the sport at Farmington High School,” Kohlbeck said. “I have really high expectations for us.”

So does Pickens. He is quick to point out how his squad resembles his standout goalkeeper.

“Almost the entire team is like her now,” Pickens said. “That’s because of the culture she has set up.”

Pickens hopes this year’s squad as well as future ones will always remember two things Kohlbeck brought to the program.

“No. 1 is attitude,” Pickens said. “She is unlike a lot of players. She has overcome so much adversity, and has always remained positive.

“No. 2 is leadership. She has always been a leader for her class. She is also a good student and fun to be around.”

Even in the toughest of times.

  • Farmington goalkeeper Maddie Kohlbeck has persevered despite injuries throughout her career. “She is what you want in all of your players,’’ coach Dan Pickens said.

  • Farmington relies on scoring from, among others, senior midfielder Rachael Welzin, who lead the Tigers with 42 goals last season.
