Unioto starts the season with win
In last yearâ€™s opener â€“ a year that eventually watched Unioto make a regional run during the postseason,
the Lady Shermans traveled to Cleveland Orange, and the two teams played to a 2-2 tie. Monday night,
Cleveland Orange returned the trip to Unioto for the 2011 opener, and the Tanks recorded a 2-0 win.
Unioto got on the board early when Jenny Campbell scored on a header. The goal was assisted by Morgan
Gumm on a free kick. Gumm later scored the second goal on a second half penalty kick.
Obviously in a shutout win, the Unioto defense was outstanding. Lydia Simpson anchored that great play from her
sweeper position, and Ashley Flautt recorded seven saves in goal.

|UNIOTO'S GUMM NAMED DISTRICT PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Unioto senior Morgan Gumm has been named Distirct Player of the Year â€“ an honor that will make her All-
Ohio First Team as well. The Mount Vernon Nazerene-bound soccer player recorded 46 goals and 77 assists in
her outstanding career. Gumm, who also is a key member of the highly successful Unioto girlsâ€™ basketball
program, scored 15 of those goals during her senior season.
In 2010, Gumm helped Unioto to the regional final, and then, this year â€“ despite Unioto losing some key players
to injury â€“ Gumm and the Lady Tanks finished just one win shy of returning to the regional tournament.
SVCsportszone.com would like to congratulate Morgan. I do not know Morgan, but from watching her compete
on the soccer field and the basketball court, I would describe her as a great leader and simply as a winner.
