Stacey & Mike's Happy News: Local HS Senior Makes School Sports History

Thanks to KPTV for covering this amazing story about a Glencoe High Senior who's "a ‘burn my own path’ kind of gal.”

Phoebe Retzlaff is burning that path during her senior year playing in two sports. “I was the kicker for Powder Puff, and so [they said] ‘you can kick for the football team if you want. You can go talk to coach,’ and I was like, ‘really?’” Retzlaff recalled.

Retzlaff booted her way into the Glencoe record books as the first female to score in a varsity game by drilling five points in her starting debut under the guidance of Glencoe head coach Ian Reynoso, who played offensive guard at Oregon for the Ducks from 2001 to 2005.

Pretty awesome for a girl who underwent surgery for scoliosis at 13.

The 17-year-old “Jack of all trades” is also an artist, selling her homemade jewelry at the Hillsboro Market.

“My grandma taught me how to knit, my nana taught me how to sew,” she said. “It’s more of a therapy, pastime kind of thing I really enjoy and it’s something that other people like what I make, so I just started selling it.”
