The first girls soccer team from Chattanooga to ever win a Div. 1 state championship featured players from two states, four counties, and nine different schools. Some of those players have gone on to make immediate impacts on their college teams while several others are committed to college teams for next year.

As competitive soccer in Chattanooga became more organized and unified under one club, the Chattanooga FC 00/01 Premier team found success by sticking together. They’re not the only ones. Chattanooga FC Academy has had 17 teams make it to at least the Final Four of State Cup in the past two seasons, including three state champions.

This 00/01 team defeated Tennessee United 00 Red in the state championship game 1-0 in June. The win earned a spot in US Youth Soccer’s Regional Championship tournament. They advanced to the quarterfinals before falling 2-0 to a Florida team that won the National Championship.

Chris Hennessey coached the team from 2014-2017 followed by Luidgi Beauzile. Luke Winter is now co-coaching the team with Beauzile.

Bringing Success to their High Schools

The Chattanooga FC 00/01 Premier team has players from Baylor, CCS, Coffee County High School, Dade County High School, East Hamilton High School, GPS, Signal Mountain High School, Soddy Daisy High School, and Walker Valley High School. Eleven players also won at least one state championship with their high school teams and three of them played for CFC Women’s team.

college placement

16 players from that team have committed or signed with 11 colleges in five states representing NCAA Div. 1, NCAA Div. 2, NCAA Div. 3, and NAIA programs.

Schools include Berry College, Bryan College, Carson-Newman University, Christian Brothers University, Covenant College, Elon University, Lee University, Manhattan College, Samford University, Tennessee Tech, and University of North Alabama.

Five players have already graduated and have finished their freshman season in college. Caitlin Dickson, Avery Engels, and Julia Kaset were part of the NCAA Div. 2 Final Four with Lee University. All three players started as freshmen and finished as the #4 team in the country. 

Anna Salisbury appeared in all 17 games as a freshman for Berry College this year and started in 16 of them. Kailey Burrell started as a freshman for Covenant College and was named Div. 3 USA South Conference Rookie of the Year.
