The annual All-State soccer teams put together by the Colorado High School Soccer Coaches Association were released on Tuesday, and a number of BoCoPreps.com athletes received impressive accolades.
Often the coaches' all-state lists must be taken with a bit of a grain of salt, given that even the best players are omitted if a representative of that school or league fails to attend, or at least be represented, at the all-state voting meeting. Hence the lack of any players this year from Adams City, which received the No. 1 seed in the Class 5A state tournament. That said, Broomfield, Fairview, and 5A state champion Boulder all were well-represented on the three all-state lists.
Here is a glance at the all-state honors collected by BoCoPreps.com athletes, in order of votes received.
First team: Eric Kronenberg, Fairview; Lake Brant, Boulder.
Second team: Javier Castruita, Boulder; Jack Mayfield, Fairview; Mason Douillard, Boulder.
Honorable mention: Henry Huettel, Boulder; Jackson Wojciechowski, Fairview.
