While so many college seasons have been canceled or postponed, the show will go on for the Point University women’s soccer team.

For the moment, the season is a go, meaning former Callaway High standouts Kelly Carlisle and Ashley Bowden will get an opportunity to play this fall.

Point’s season, assuming nothing changes, will

begin on Sept. 16 with a home match against Truett-McConnell University.

While Carlisle is in her third season at Point, Bowden is heading into her freshman season.

Carlisle has enjoyed two successful seasons at Point scoring a combined 20 goals, and that included 17 goals during a memorable freshman season.

“My freshman year, I was lucky enough to be the leading scorer, so that was nice,” Carlisle said. “This past year I didn’t score as much, but I’d say that I improved on my passing, and being more in shape and getting up and down the field, and being in the right spot at the right time.”

Bowden, meanwhile, comes to Point following a successful prep career at Callaway High.

“When I went there (to Point), everyone was super-nice and I felt at home and comfortable,” Bowden said. “Sometimes you go to college and feel a little out of place, but I didn’t feel out of place at all.”

Point’s schedule has been shortened to 15 games, and eight of those games will be at home.

Point’s men’s soccer team will also play this fall, although it will only play 11 games, beginning with a game against Truett-McConnell on Sept. 16.
