ARCHBOLD, Ohio (WTVG) - Andi Peterson is in only her second season of playing high school soccer, but she plays an important role for the Blue Streaks as the team's holding midfielder.

"That position is hard to fill because they are constantly moving," Archbold center back Brooke Kohler said. "They're main role is to make the rest of the team look good. Whether it's feeding them or passing it back.

"She definately makes our team look good."

Peterson has many assists and not many goals for Archbold this season.

"My role is to kind of to be that person that I can get the ball and then I can switch sides of the field," Peterson said. "I can give it to my teammates for them to attack or I can play it back to kind of regroup."

Peterson did not play soccer her freshman year and instead played volleyball. However, this is not her first time playing soccer. Peterson also runs cross country for Archbold and also played softball.

Archbold assistant coach Jen Kidder calls Peterson a true athlete.

"Last year, she came off of being a volleyball player," Kidder said. "That was what she was going to do. She changed her mind and came out (to play soccer). She's been a huge asset to our team.

"I can't imagine us being where we are today with her on the field."
