Miranda Keaton of Linganore Girls Soccer Named US Army Impact Player of the Month
Miranda Keaton, a member of the girls soccer team at Linganore High School in Frederick County, has been named the US Army Impact Player of the Month for October!
Keaton, a senior, was nominated for the award by her coach at Linganore, Howie Putterman.
"She is a leader off the field, creating unity for our team and is a constant competitor, both in games and practice- raising the level of intensity for everyone on the team," Putterman wrote in his nomination.
Keaton, a senior, has enjoyed an historic campaign as she's helped lead the Lancers to a 12-2 mark this season. She set program records this year in goals scored in a single season with 22, as well as points accrued in a single season with 48. Keaton has netted hat tricks on three separate occasions.
As a junior, Keaton was named to the second team All-Area team, and second team All-Conference.
Away from the field, Keaton makes an impact as well. She performs a lot of community service through programs like Alvarado's Angels and Hayden's Heroes. Keaton has also volunteered at local elementary school fairs and soccer camps, where she shares her soccer expertise with young players.
With Linganore's playoffs starting today against South Hagerstown, the Lancers will be relying on Keaton to continue to make an impact if they want to reach the MPSSAA 3A state final for the third straight season.
"She has been a leader for us both on and off the field," Putterman wrote. "Miranda is our emotional leader, the engine that drives us."
County Sports Zone would like to thank the US Army for sponsoring the Impact Player Award!
