Georgia Lee Leads Lejeune Soccer

Lejeune High's smallest player comes up big on soccer field

Camp Lejeune, NC | March 11, 2019

Georgia Lee is one of the smallest players on the Lejeune High School girls soccer team. However, she came up big in the team’s first match of the 2019 season.

Lee scored four goals, including one on a penalty kick, as the Devil Pups defeated Southside 5-1 at Lejeune High School on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Feb. 27.

“Georgia plays a big game, but she is tiny,” said Charles Teegarden, LHS soccer head coach. “She takes a lot of physicality, but the game takes a lot out of you. As long as she is not getting beat up in the middle, then she will be fine. Georgia is going to find a way.”

Lee is in her first season playing soccer for the Devil Pups (1-0-1). She played soccer last year at Abilene Christian High School in Texas.

“It is amazing playing soccer here,” Lee said. “I am really excited for this season, and it was a great start to the season. I know that we are going to make it far.”
