Roberson is going into spring break as the only undefeated girls team in the Mountain Athletic Conference and a new entry in this week’s N.C.. Soccer Coaches Association rankings for NCHSAA 4-A.
The Rams improved to 8-0-3 and 3-0-0 in the MAC with Wednesday’s 7-1 win at North Buncombe.

Nine of their 24 players are seniors — Metcalf, Pritchard, Widman, Alex Mahoney, Anna Spake, Emily Fuller, Lauren Croft, Lily Talley and Maddie Hiriak.
