against Providence last year, the lady Knights of Marian led
by coach Djamel Charmat defeated Providence 2-0 in this

Whereas, In contrast to last year, the Knights were able to score early to win in regulation, thanks in part to goals scored by D.J. Veldman and Shannon Hendricks;
Whereas, Marian's goalkeeper, Makaela Douglas,
Marian's defense were superb in their efforts to protect the
lead and shutout Providence's offense;
Whereas, Shannon Hendricks and Gabby Veldman, of the
Marian Knights, displayed great courage and determination
to return from injury and perform at a high level; and
Whereas, Star forward Gabby Veldman finished her career as the all-time leading scorer for the Marian Knights and a state champion: Therefore,
SECTION 1. The General Assembly congratulates the Lady
Knights for winning the Class 1-A state championship for soccer.
SECTION 2. The Secretary of the Senate is directed to transmit a copy of this resolution to Marian High School Principal Carl Loesch and Lady Knights head coach Djamel Charmat.
