Fellowship Grad Looks to Close Out Career Strong

After three years on the field for the Berry College soccer team, it's hard to imagine that Jake Williamson really debated about whether or not to play collegiate soccer after graduating from Fellowship Christian School in 2016.

"I really wasn't sure if I wanted to play soccer in college," he said. "After my senior year at Fellowship I thought should I pursue going to the University Georgia like my friends, or should I go to a Division III school to play soccer?"

Well a lunch with his brother Drew and the former "Voice of the Soccer Paladins" Jeff McClendon changed that idea.

"He's really wise," Williamson said about McClendon. "He gave me the best advice. He told me that after watching me play during my senior year [and the team's run to the state title game] that he could tell I was not ready to give up soccer yet. He said 'I want to encourage you to try and least give it one year.' Well going into my fourth and final year at Berry, I know it was a great choice. Mr. McClendon gave me the best advice. It has been challenging at this level, but rewarding too. The talent is great here in Division III soccer. And the coaches are great here too."

Now Williamson is one of two senior leaders on the Viking squad.

"It's crazy to look back on my career at Berry as I get ready to go back to school for my senior year," Williamson said. "I am one of two seniors on the team. I'll have even more of a leadership role than I had the last couple of years. I feel really good as I head into this season. I know what to expect on the field and against our conference opponents."

Williamson appreciates the advice he received, and as a result takes the opportunity to encourage others. In fact, he's often shared the same advice with Berry recruits who are not convinced about a potential Division III career.

"It's all about the people you meet, and how they impact you," he said. "I have met with a lot of recruits, and some are in the same spot I was. So I always say 'give it a try for a year.' "

Last year's Berry squad had 13 seniors, while the program is adding 9-10 freshman for the fall 2019 season. The team's roster is expected to include eight sophomores and five juniors. Williamson led the Vikings with a career-best 31 points, four game-winning goals and seven assists, 66 shots and 38 shots on goal, and shared the lead with a career-best 12 goals. His assist, shots and shots on goal totals were also career bests.

Williamson played in all 17 games, including 16 starts, and was All-SAA as a junior.

"It'll be a big change this year," Williamson said. "We will be a much younger team. I came into the program with four other freshmen, but now there are only two of us left [for our senior year]. So we'll need a lot of young guys to step up."

The Berry squad went 10-5-2 in 2018, including a 3-2-2-conference mark. The club went 8-8-1 overall and 3-3-1 in Southern Athletic Association contests in 2017, and was 10-9 overall and 3-4 in SAA games in 2016.

"It was such a great season in 2018," Williamson said. "Our record really doesn't reflect on how good we were. We had two overtime games that were ties, and all of our losses were one-goal games that could have easily gone the other way. We had a super run that ended in the semifinals with a loss to Oglethorpe. Their center back scores on a long 30-yard shot [to tie the game] and we lose in overtime. We were definitely the best two teams in the league."

Oglethorpe went on to win the SAA Tournament in 2018. Williamson hopes it is Berry's turn this time.

"We want to keep the momentum going [in 2019]," Williamson said. "We will have to work pretty hard to get back to the playoffs, but we know we can do it. We'll have to work on team chemistry with a lot of new freshmen coming in, but the upperclassmen know what we need to do. We have reached the conference semifinals for three straight years. We want to win the conference tourney this time."

During Williamson's three years as a Viking he's put up some very solid numbers. The team has a combined 28-22-3 record during that stretch, while Williamson has collected 60 points (23 goals, 14 assists).

During his sophomore year, Williamson was All-SAA First Team and led the team with six assists, 18 points and 64 shots (30 on goal), and shared first with six assists. In 2016, he was third on the club with 11 points (five goals, one assist).

The 2016 graduate of FCS is looking to close out his career strongly.

"I want to score as many goals as I can," he said. "But I also want to be more of a balanced player. I want to help out more in the middle and the back third of the field. Being a leader is a symbol on the field of doing what's right to help your team win."

FCS Graduate Wraps Up First Collegiate Lacrosse Season at Presbyterian College in SC

Fellowship Christian School graduate Meredith Moore had a little bit easier adjustment academically than athletically during her first year in college. But overall it was a big success.

Moore, a 2018 graduate of FCS, completed her first year at Presbyterian College in Clinton, S.C. this spring for the Blue Hose Division I women's lacrosse team.

The 5-foot-5 defenseman played in 16 games, including nine starts, for the Blue Hose. She collected a pair of assists (her first as a collegiate player came on March 8 in a home win over Delaware State) and had 10 ground balls. She also caused four turnovers, and earned her second assist at Wagner College on March 24.

"Lacrosse was very hard this year," Moore said. "The college game was a lot different. It was tough to play against girls a lot older. Some of my opponents were 22 or 23. It was really big jump in the game. I loved college [academically]. I am an undecided major, but I took a lot of general education classes. It was really the easiest part of my freshman season. It's a great school, and I am so happy to be at Presbyterian."

On the field, Moore quickly saw the differences between her years on the field for FCS and at Presbyterian, which competes in the Big South Conference.

"The biggest differences in the game are the speed, quickness and agility of the players," she said. "In college lacrosse you don't stop on the whistle. You run the whole time."

The Blue Hose finished 1-16 overall last season, and are in the middle of coaching transition.

"It was a tough year on the scoreboard," Moore said. "But it was an awesome experience overall. It was a joy to travel to games, prepare with my teammates and spend time with them. We are a recovering program, but we hope to make improvements this season. Our goal is to make the conference tournament."

The Blue Hose transitioned into a Division I program about five seasons ago.

Moore began her lacrosse career as a fourth grader and spent seven seasons with FCS middle school, JV and varsity teams.

"We grew the program with my class," said Moore, who played for head coaches Maddie Leathers Cason, Ali Senft and Tracy Morgan and assistant Jeff Buchweitz. "They were all awesome. They prepared me for college. The training with Tracy was unreal. They taught me a lot about being ready for college lacrosse."

During her career at FCS, she played middle school lacrosse for several dad coaches, including her own (Kent Moore). Kent happens to be the current middle school lacrosse coach at FCS.

Meredith was a four-year starter for the Lady Paladin program (JV and varsity), including its first two varsity seasons in 2017 and 2018. She helped the 2018 team finish 12-7 overall and advance to the GHSA Class A-AAAAA Girls Lacrosse Championships for the first time in school history.

Moore is spending her summer working at Camp Glisson in North Georgia.

Christina Bohler Joins FCS Cheerleading Program

Fellowship Christian School recently hired a new head varsity cheerleading coach.

Christina Bohler, who recently moved to Georgia, joins FCS from First Academy in Leesburg, Fla. An educator with 20-plus years of experience in Christian education, Bohler also brings more than 18 years of experience as a head cheerleading coach and choreographer for programs with various levels of sideline and competition cheerleading from youth to high school.

"I am excited about having Coach Bohler join our coaching staff as one of the varsity head coaches at FCS," Athletic Director David Lowery said. "We were blessed to interview qualified candidates in our coaching search and I was impressed with Coach Bohler's experience in cheerleading and her passion for the sport. However, more importantly to me, I was inspired by her faith and how it plays a tremendous role in how she runs her programs. She truly wants to use this opportunity as a way to impact and lead our young women for Christ."

Bohler has worked with the Fellowship of Christian Cheerleaders (FCC) as a summer staff coordinator, camp director, and competition coordinator. She has also coached All-Star teams in both coed and All-Girl Cheerleading for eight years. Some of her coaching accomplishments include coaching several Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) Competitive Cheer State Champions while taking three different schools competitive cheerleading teams to FCC National Titles.

Bohler has coached 10 National Championship Teams, been an FCC Coach of the Year, inducted into the FCC Coach Hall of Fame, and served as a former member of the FHSAA Competitive Cheer Advisory Board.

"I am thrilled to join the Fellowship family," Bohler said. "I'm excited to be playing a part in continuing to grow the cheerleading program, not only athletically but also as a servant leader to our school and community."

Bohler holds a Bachelor of Arts in elementary and middle education from Clearwater Christian College. Christina and her husband of 25 years, Dan, attend Riverpoint Community Church in Demorest, Fla. Their son Bryce is a sophomore at Piedmont College.

FCS will host a pair of "Meet & Greet" sessions with coach Bohler: Tuesday, June 18 or Session 2 on Tuesday, June 25 (both sessions are at 6 p.m.) in Studio 86 of the high school building. Cheerleaders and their parents are invited to attend.

Additionally, all high school female athletes are invited and encouraged to attend summer workout sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon to 1:15 p.m. through July 25 at the FCS Paladin Center (735 W. Crossville Road, Roswell, 30075) with the exception being the GHSA mandated Dead Week on July 1 – 5. These workout sessions are led by Coach Tracy Morgan.
