As a defender in soccer, Emily Cronise hasn't had her name in the newspaper very often, as she's not usually the one scoring the goals or making the assists. But that doesn't seem to bother the Boonsboro senior. What really bothers her is the opposition scoring goals, and that's why it rarely happens under her watch. This fall, Cronise led Boonsboro to an 8-4-4 record. While the Warriors only managed to score 19 goals on the year, they only had a mere seven scored against them as they posted 11 shutouts, including a 1-0 upset of Williamsport in the final of the Washington County tournament.
