McClure has been one of the top goalkeepers in the area this season for the Statesmen, compiling a record of 18-1 for Webster Groves during the season with 13 solo clean sheets.

Webster Groves coach Thom Champion told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that McClure had been asking to take free kicks all season. He finally gave her a chance to show him what she could do on Tuesday during practice.

McClure plays her club soccer for St. Louis Scott Gallagher under coach Ralph Richards. She’ll continue her soccer career next season at Arkansas State.

Webster Groves will host Visitation next Tuesday in the sectional road of the MSHSAA Class 3 Girls Soccer State Tournament.
