Lafayette Commodores

Gatorade POY caps Houghton’s banner year

Alley Houghton was in for a surprise Tuesday morning. Lafayette High’s rising senior soccer player joined the rest of her teammates for a meeting called by coach Melinda Scruggs.

Gatorade is in its third decade of selecting players of the year in each state in partnership with USA Today High School Sports, and Houghton is the first player in school history to receive the prestigious honor in girls’ soccer. (May 25, 2015, Page 6)
