(ABC 6 NEWS) -- With the turnover at the high school level, teams have to replace their best players almost every year.

The Kasson-Mantorville girls soccer team is no exception.

"We're a different team this year, because we lost a dynamic scorer," Komets head coach Chris Soderberg said. "Instead of that one 25-goal scorer, we potentially have four or five girls that can score ten goals."

Count junior midfielder Brooke Kollman among them.

Kollman is off to a great start in 2013, after she spent most of last year on the sideline.

"I injured my toe, so I had surgery on that where they cut the bone," Kollman said. "I was in a cast, in a walking boot, so it was a long haul."

"She came back in January, when she really started lifting weights, and she's such a stronger player this year," Soderberg said. "Physically, she doesn't get bounced around out there."

"(The surgery) paid off. I worked really hard, and I think I'm better than I was," Kollman said.


Kollman has a goal and four assists in the Komets last two games, both wins.

"I want to get our team back to state. That's definitely the top goal," Kollman said.
