(Continued from Page 1)

FIRST TEAM

Forwards

Amanda Hoglund, fr., Richmond-Burton

Hoglund provided Richmond-Burton with a dynamic scoring threat up top. Her quickness was unmatched in the Big Northern Conference as she scored an area-best 49 goals along with 16 assists. Hoglund was a big reason why R-B had its most successful season in school history, finishing third in the Class 1A state playoffs.

Korey Kronforst, sr., Cary-Grove

Kronforst is the Northwest Herald Player of the Year after leading C-G to the Fox Valley Conference Valley Division title with a 6-0 record. The senior forward didn’t have her best year statistically, scoring 16 goals with three assists, but her goals often came at clutch times, including game-winners against Huntley and Jacobs.

Molly Machometa, sr., McHenry

Whether it was on the soccer field or on the track, Machometa was one of the fastest girls in the area. The senior forward split time between the two spring sports and had a huge impact on both teams. Machometa was a Second Team All-Area selection in soccer as a junior.

Midfielders

Laura LeFevour, sr., Marian Central

LeFevour also spent time at forward, scoring 22 goals with three assists for Marian. LeFevour teamed with junior Robin Wenzel to form one of the more dangerous offensive tandems in the area. She also was a First Team All-Area selection as a junior and will play at Louisiana Tech next season.

Delaney Loprieno, so., Huntley

Loprieno was Huntley’s primary playmaker at center midfielder and scored 12 goals with six assists. She is one of the most skilled players in the area and helped the Red Raiders overcome the loss of nine starters from 2011.

Abigail Nordeen, so., Huntley

Nordeen was primarily a defensive midfielder for Huntley, but the sophomore came through in many clutch situations for the Red Raiders. She had three goals and four assists on the season, and also converted two critical penalty kicks against Jacobs in the regular season and postseason.

Robin Wenzel, sr., Marian Central

Wenzel is a repeat First Team All-Area selection from last year. After recovering from a knee injury she suffered during basketball season, Wenzel came on strong in the second half of the season. She scored seven goals and had seven assists as an extremely high energy player.

Defenders

Margaret Rivera, jr., Jacobs

In addition to being a defensive stalwart at sweeper for Jacobs, Rivera showed her versatility by taking all free kicks and corners for the Golden Eagles. She scored five goals and had 10 assists on the year. She was a Second Team All-Area selection as a sophomore.

Sierra Romero, sr., Cary-Grove

Romero was part of a C-G defense that yielded only 15 goals in 19 games this season. Although she didn’t record any offensive statistics, she was often involved in the offensive build-up and used her speed to make quick runs down the sideline.

Rachel Zobott, so., Huntley

As one of the few experienced players back from last year’s Red Raiders team, Zobott was a steady influence who helped Huntley reach the Class 4A sectional finals. Huntley’s defense posted 11 shutouts on the year.

Goalie

Paige Lincicum, sr., Cary-Grove

Lincicum, who was also a First Team All-Area selection in basketball, used her athleticism to make a number of key saves for C-G in conference play. Lincicum had seven shutouts in 14 games, allowing only 11 goals total, and led the Trojans to a conference championship.
