IHSA Girls Soccer: meet the Galesburg team
GALESBURG — After dropping its first two cases, the Galesburg High School women’s soccer team is riding a two-game winning streak.
The Streaks opened the 2022 season last Monday night, losing 1-0 to Orion/Sherrard at CC Van Dyke Field.
Late last week, Galesburg took part in the East Peoria Invite. The Streaks were beaten by the Limestone Rockets 1-0 on Thursday, and Friday’s games were called off. On Saturday, Galesburg picked up a 3-0 win over Canton and a dramatic 1-0 shootout victory over Macomb for third place in the tournament.
Harmony Huntington is in his first season as head coach of Galesburg. The 44-year-old is not new to the program as Huntington has been around for eight seasons. She was an assistant to former coach Tony Miller for six of them. He took over the Streaks ahead of the 2016 season and retired in early November 2021.
“Right now everyone has a good, positive attitude and they’re working really hard,” Huntington said last Tuesday night inside the John Thiel Gymnasium during photo day for the Galesburg Spring Sports Teams.
