Her coaches think Audrey Rose Kachin has enough leg to break the national high school record for a field goal kicked by a female. Field goals are rare in 8-man football, but Plateau Valley is hoping to get her a chance. Kachin, a college-bound soccer player, has kicked a

“She strikes the ball so consistently,” Plateau Valley coach Dave Bristol said. “I don’t know that I’ve seen anything like it.”
