Sarah Nader- snader@shawmedia.com St. Edward's Megan Kearney is guarded by Johnsburg's Delaney Pruitt while she dribbles down field during the second half of Friday's Class 1A Richmond-Burton girls soccer sectional final May 23, 2014 in Richmond. Johnsburg was defeated 0-3.

First Team


Delaney Pruitt, jr., Johnsburg

Last year's Player of the Year was a dominant force up front for the Skyhawks this season. The junior tallied 23 goals and added five assists this year, constantly providing problems for any defense she went up against. Pruitt led Johnsburg went to the sectional final this season.

Taryn Jakubowski, so., Huntley

Jakubowski was a concern for any team that Huntley played this season. She was a central point of the Red Raiders attack, scoring 22 goals and 13 assists. Jakubowski will headline a Huntley team next year that gained much experience from their supersectional loss to St. Charles East.

Avalon Senn-Raemont, sr., McHenry

Senn-Raemont was the leading goal scorer on a McHenry team that won a regional title. The senior led the area with 26 goals, along with seven assists. She was always a top priority of opposing defenses and will be heading to Loyola-Chicago to play soccer next season.


Abby Nordeen, sr., Huntley

Nordeen was a rock in the middle of the Red Raider midfield. A lot of what Huntley did both offensively and defensively went through the senior captain. Nordeen broke her nose in the sectional final and did not miss a game. She will play soccer at D-II Minnesota State next year.

Alexis Morales, sr., McHenry

Morales was a key part of McHenry's success this season. Along with Senn-Raemont, Morales was a crafty player, providing the Warriors offense with a variety of chances. The Western-Illinois bound midfielder scored nine goals and had 13 assists this year.

Katie Beck, jr., Crystal Lake Central

Beck was a large part of everything the Tigers accomplished this year. On a team that struggled to score goals, the junior tallied 14 of the team's 25 goals. Beck led Crystal Lake Central to a share of the FVC Fox Division title.


Audrey Collard, sr., Crystal Lake South

Collard is the Northwest Herald Player of the Year. Collard and the Gators did not allow a goal in conference until their final match of the season, helping them earn a share of the FVC Valley Division title. She also contributed five goals, three of which were game winners. Her senior leadership was a big reason why the Gators went 14 straight games without a loss this season. Collard will play at D-II Lewis University next season.

Ali Fanning, sr., Prairie Ridge

Fanning was one of the best on-ball defenders in the area. Although offense statistics weren’t there, she always drew the task of man marking the opponents best offensive player. Prairie Ridge earned a share of the FVC Fox Division title with Crystal Lake South. Fanning will play soccer next season at Grand View University in Des Moines.

Rachel Zobott, sr., Huntley

Zobott was the central defender on a Huntley team that did not allow a goal in any win this season. The Red Raiders won 19 games. The standout defender was a huge part of Huntley’s success. Zobott will play soccer at Illinois-Chicago next year.

Kortnee Haas, jr., Johnsburg

Haas was a crucial part of the Skyhawks' defense this season, usually drawing the opponent’s top player. Haas returns to a young and experienced Skyhawks team for next season. The small defender took no task lightly and played with a fearless mindset that contributed largely to Johnsburg’s success this year.


Jessica Galason, sr., Huntley

Galason had 19 shutouts this season, setting a school record. Every win that Huntley had this season was a shutout for Galason. The Illinois State-bound goalkeeper won both of her team’s games that went to a penalty kick shootout this year (one of the playoffs), and was a huge part of why Huntley was one win away from heading to the state tournament.
