The league’s top two scorers were awarded with co-Most Valuable Player recognition with the release of the 32-4A all-district girls soccer team, as voted by coaches.

Blakeley scored 26 goals and dished out 20 assists in leading Hallsville to a Class 4A Region II second-round playoff appearance.

Wallin finished her high school career as Pine Tree’s career leader in goals (119) and assists (80). She scored 35 more goals and had 26 more assists than the second-place totals in those categories in PT’s history.

Pine Tree senior Amanda Cabrera, who finished in the top 10 in career goals and assists at PT, was named Offensive MVP. Kilgore junior Lanie Bennett and Pine Tree junior Ana Solis shared the Defensive MVP award.

Marshall’s Anna Westmoreland was named Sophomore of the Year. Spring Hill freshman Destiny Walker received Newcomer of the Year honors. Henderson senior Raven Partin earned Goalkeeper of the Year honors, while Pine Tree senior Emily Shelton was named Utility Player of the Year.
