FIRST TEAM

Forwards

Delaney Pruitt

so., Johnsburg

Pruitt is the Northwest Herald Player of the Year after helping the Skyhawks to a fourth-place finish in the Class 1A state playoffs. She scored a team-high 24 goals and added 12 assists

Larissa Dooley

so., Prairie Ridge

The 4-foot-101/2 forward finished the season with a team-leading 17 goals and two assists. Dooley used her speed to stretch the field and scored several clutch goals, including the go-ahead goal in the sectional final and the game-winning goal in the supersectional to reach state.

Amanda Hoglund

so., Richmond-Burton

Hoglund led the Rockets in goals scored for the second straight season, even though she missed the postseason when she left for a college showcase. She was the main threat in a potent offense that outscored opponents 76-4.

Alex Zeller

jr., Hampshire

Zeller was the Whip-Purs leading scorer and had a few multigoal matches. She was an explosive option for Hampshire’s offense and forced teams to pay special attention to her.

Midfielders

Bri Fenton

sr., Prairie Ridge

Fenton was named the Prairie Ridge Female Athlete of the Year and was voted as the girls soccer MVP. She was a playmaker for the Wolves and gave opposing teams fits as she would consistently shut down the middle of the field. She scored 11 goals and had two assists.

Abigail Nordeen

jr., Huntley

She was Huntley’s team MVP and scored 23 goals during the season. She was the backbone for the Red Raiders and shored up the middle of the field. Huntley played one of the toughest nonconference schedules in the area.

Katie Beck

so., Crystal Lake Central

The leading scorer for the Tigers, she was their main threat. She kept the team in a lot of matches because of her ability to score quickly.

Defenders

Rachel Zobott

jr., Huntley

The Red Raiders posted 14 shutouts this season largely because of Zobott’s defense. Huntley rolled over opponents using a dominant defense.

Margaret Rivera

sr., Jacobs

Rivera scored five goals and added five assists while playing shutdown defense. She has one of the strongest legs in the area and opened up many opportunities for the Golden Eagles on free kicks and corners. She was the vocal leader of the team.

Ali Fanning

jr,. Prairie Ridge

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.

Goalkeeper

Whitney Whitehouse

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.
