Also earning first team honors were four players from Sixth Region champion Mercy -- Cayla Metzmeier, Jacqueline Schmitt, Julia Hodge and goalie Elizabeth Singer. The other first-team members were Butler Sarah Cornett and Pleasure Ridge Park players Paige Snepp and Kelaiah Clark.
On the second team, Bullitt East, the regional runner-up the past two seasons, was represented by sophomores Layne Cutler and Kacie Heichelbech. North Bullitt junior Rachel Badgett was also on that team.
Rounding out the second-team was Butler goalie Elizabeth Baker-Noren and Kayla Coleman along with Fern Creek’s Kelsie Huffman, Mercy’s Sierra Hoagland, Mariah Geisen and Rachel McGarry along with Madison Wrenn and Hannah Watson of Pleasure Ridge Park.
For the second year in a row, Roby earned All-State honorable mention honors after leading Bullitt East to a 17-8 record. After starting the season as a forward, Roby switched to defense after the first two games saw Bullitt East give up seven goals.
Roby was the only senior starter for Bullitt East this past season.
