Gabby Hart, Skyline High School junior forward, plays Sept. 9 in a soccer match against Jackson High School. Hart scored the opening goal as the Spartans defeated the visiting Timberwolves, 4-0.

Skyline substituted freely throughout the match — particularly at midfield and forward — and put the game away early in the second half on goals from Kelli Sullivan and Lindsey Fujiwara.
