Wando girls take second straight state title in soccer in overtime thriller
The Wando High School girls’ soccer program won the South Carolina High School League AAAAA state championship for the second year in a row, with an overtime victory in the state finals. The Warriors (19-1) captured the 2022 crown with a 2-1 victory over T.L. Hanna on Saturday, May 14, 2022, in Irmo.
Kylie Cino found the back of the net in the second overtime period to give Wando the victory; Cino actually had the assist on the game-winning goal in OT for the Warriors in the state finals last year. Ansley Douty scored the other goal for Wando, which now has 12 state championships in girls soccer overall.
Shannon Champ now has eight state titles in her 17 seasons as the Warriors' head coach.
