For four years, Jaden Terrana has been the epitome of consistency on the soccer pitch.
Bishop Gorman’s senior forward has had nearly identical goal and assist numbers in each season of her decorated high school career.
Terrana, who was selected the Review-Journal’s Athlete of the Week for girls soccer, had seven goals and six assists in a 3-0 week for the Gaels. One of those goals, however, stood out. It was Terrana’s 75th of her career, making her the most prolific goal-scorer in Gorman history.
“It was a fantastic moment for her,” Gorman coach Doug Borgel said. “She has been an absolute star for us for four years, and her goal and assists numbers have consistently been equal. She broke my daughter’s record, so we had some fun with that, too. It’s well-deserved.”
Hannah Borgel scored 74 goals for Gorman from 2014-17, and Terrana also has the marks for assists (65) and total points (215).
After Terrana put in the record-breaker, she was taken out of the game so the crowd — which included many of her family and friends — could properly recognize the accomplishment. She was also presented a ball with the date to mark the milestone.
“If you look back in the history of the state at every school, very few have (the balance of goals and assists) she has,” Coach Borgel said. “Most players either have a ton of goals and few assists or a few goals and a ton of assists. It just shows the kind of player and person she is. She’s just as happy to assist on a goal as she is to score one of her own.”
Three others earned Athlete of the Week honors.
Ramon Green, Democracy Prep: The running back had six carries for 160 yards and three touchdowns, and two receptions for 58 yards and a score in a 58-32 loss to Lincoln County.
Anthony Gonzalez, Las Vegas: The midfielder scored three goals and added an assist in a 2-0 week for the Wildcats.
Leah Miller, Rancho: The right-side hitter had 41 kills, six blocks and 19 digs in a 2-0 week for the Rams.
