Ellie Antonson

Ellie Antonson races an Eau Claire Memorial player to the ball during the 2019 season. Antonson is one of five seniors Rice Lake has on this year’s roster.

A veteran defense, cohesive midfield and mixture of experience with young talent at forward provides the Rice Lake girls soccer team excellent balance as a new season gets underway.

The Warriors have waited nearly two years to get back on the field and quite a bit has changed since Rice Lake’s loss in a Division 3 sectional semifinal ended the 2019 season after a 11-6-4 overall and fourth-place finish in the Big Rivers Conference. First among those changes is a new coach. Veteran Rice Lake soccer coach Rich Holmes takes over varsity coaching duties for the departed Nick Merkt.
