Marion soccer star Chloe DeLyser made all of Western New York proud when she broke the high school national goals record for girls soccer Tuesday night.
Except, she didn’t officially break the record. It’s complicated.
The official record, according to the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), was 316. DeLyser scored five goals Tuesday to go from 314 to 319.
However, a young lady was discovered in Kansas City named Kassi Ginther who scored 319 goals in her career.
The NFHS contacted New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA), who passed along to us, that they only recognize a high school career as 9th through 12th grade.
“For purposes of high school records through the National Federation of State High School Associations, a high school career is limited to four seasons, grades 9-12,” was the statement texted to News 8’s Alexa Ross.
DeLyser scored 66 of her 319 goals in 7th and 8th grade.
