Girls soccer coming to Crisfield High as an official sport this fall

Posted

Coming this fall, for the 2022-2023 school year, Crisfield High School will have the first ever girls varsity soccer team in Somerset County history.

It’s something Somerset County has needed for a while.

Coaching the team will be Erin Walbert, eighth grade social studies teacher. She graduated from Salisbury University and has been teaching at Crisfield High for four years. Ms. Walbert played soccer and lacrosse while she was in high school and wanted to coach a girls soccer team ever since she started teaching. For the past two years, she ran a women’s soccer club in anticipation of becoming a recognized team.

According to Greg Bozman, athletic director for both Crisfield and Washington high schools, the decision was made official by the directors of the Bayside Athletic Conference and then the schedule was reworked to include the CHS team.

“I think it’s a monumental moment,” said Bozman. “It gives our girls another sport to participate in. They are excited to be working on the design for the uniforms.”

For the girls participating, it will definitely be a huge moment when they step on the field this fall as the first girls soccer team in Somerset County history.
