Junior Bearcat forward Addison Hill is now the highest-scoring soccer player in Bainbridge High School history. Hill broke the record for most career goals, surpassing the previous mark of 61 goals, in a four-score effort against Brookwood School on Feb. 15.

“It feels really good,” Hill said. “That’s a really exciting thing, especially because I know how hard it is, breaking that record.”

Hill came into the 2024 season with 52 career goals, scoring 42 in 2023. She said she knew she was in striking distance of the record at the start of the season and that breaking it came sooner than expected.

“I knew last year after I had a really good season I had like 20 goals left, maybe 15 left to go before I would break the scoring record,” Hill said. “But I never knew when that would be, and the first few goals at Brookwood were really quick,”

Ladycats’ head coach — and Hill’s father — Brian Hill, said he’s glad he can share the special moment with his daughter.

“I’m proud of her,” Coach Hill said. “I’m proud of her for [breaking the record], but I’m also proud of the way she plays the game. She hustles and competes… I like her overall game and being a leader.”

Hill said she’s proud of her accomplishment and that she wouldn’t have been able to make history without the help from her father and her team.

“Especially with [Coach Hill] being my coach,” Hill said. “It makes it like a family thing. Also how close we are as a team is really good. Even though it’s me breaking the record, I couldn’t do it without my team or without my dad. My dad’s always pushing me to be the best soccer player I can be, so I definitely would not have done this without him.”
