Fanning didn’t have any offensive statistics but was an elite defender. Coach J.C. Brown was comfortable having her mark the opposing team’s best player and Fanning would effectively limit their production. She was a huge asset in the postseason.
sr., Prairie Ridge
Whitehouse made more than 100 saves and allowed only 19 goals in 23 matches and led the Wolves’ stingy defense, which frustrated teams throughout the regular season and playoffs. She kept her team in many matches and posted 14 shutouts including nine straight.
