College Soccer: Mount Pleasant grad a scoring machine at W&J

Joe Bendel profiles Mount Pleasant graduate Jordan Toohey, who is now a standout soccer player at Washington & Jefferson.

"Jordan Toohey sprinted toward the back goal post, eager to catch the attention of teammate Mariah Lockard. And then it happened: The pass arrived on cue, and Toohey drove it into the net.

"Relief," she said.

This was no ordinary goal for Toohey, a sophomore super-scorer at Washington & Jefferson College. It was the official renewal of a soccer career that hit rock bottom a year earlier while playing at Division I Saint Francis, Pa.

"I thought to myself, 'I can do this again,'" said Toohey, a Mount Pleasant High School graduate who transferred last winter. "It was a great feeling.""
