Student Spotlight – OMHS Soccer Star


Hannah Faulkner, Staff Writer

A soccer star of Oak Mountain, Danielle Retief, was named on the second team all-state, all metro player, and given the opportunity to represent the north during the annual all-star game. Danielle Retief has been playing soccer since she was three years old and has been a vital role in the starting lineup since her freshman year season. Danielle was chosen to be on the all star level because of her outstanding offensive skills. 

Last year Danielle fell short of beating the school record of most goals in a season by one goal. Although she felt defeated, she is ready to try again this year. Danielle says, “I could not be more excited for soccer season because we are going all the way to state.” She believes with the starting line-up they have this year they will bring home the championship trophy.
