CHARLESTON, W.Va. – It’s never too late to add another accolade to your soccer resume.
Despite the high school soccer season ending some two months ago, the West Virginia Sports Writers Association released its AA-A girls soccer all-state teams Tuesday morning.
There should be no surprise that players from the two state tournament teams from this group, Fairmont Senior and Philip Barbour, combined for six of the nine all-state spots among local players.
Four Fairmont Senior received all-state honors, including first team selection Tricia Lemasters and second team captain, sophomore Adaline Cinalli. Lemasters tallied 29 goals and dished out eight assists.
“I was so thrilled and honored to get that accomplishment,” Lemasters said. “Throughout the whole season, it’s all been about the team, I just happened to be the one capitalize on a couple more goals, be the one to be dribbling more.”
Polar Bears keeper, Rebecca Cox, was also named to the first team all-state squad, allowing just 1.1 goals per game this season.
East Fairmont Star freshman, and former Honda Athlete of the Week, Kierstyn Maxey, also received first team honors. Maxey registered 25 goals and 13 assists in her first season of high school soccer, both of which led her team.
“I was very excited to be getting recognized for all of this, and I realized that the harder I work the more it pays off,” said Maxey. “It doesn’t really matter what class you’re in, like if you’re a freshman, sophomore, work ethic is what really determines everything.”
Philip Barbour, who qualified for the state tournament for the first time in school history this season, had a pair of all-state selections — Braylyn Sparks and Braylynn Travis.
“I definitely did not expect that. I guess my goal is to keep growing, better and better, and hopefully getting bigger awards,” said Sparks. “I honestly think I was just a good team player, and single player, all the way around, creating goals and opportunities, and getting my own goals.”
Below is the full list of the all-state teams.
