F — Gracie Armstrong, Jr., Legacy: One of the most exciting players to watch this season. She was capable of putting her team on her back and it showed with her 25 goal season.

F — Tea Smith, Sr., Fairview: The N.C. State-bound striker attracted a ton of attention from the opposing defenses, but had a knack for scoring the big goals in the big matches throughout her career with the Knights.

F — Kailee Stobbe, Sr., Niwot: The Northern League Player of the Year accounted for 13 goals and seven assists for the Cougars.

F — Hailey Stodden, Jr., Broomfield: Eagles coach Jim Davidson called the Player of the Year, "the best player I've ever had the fortune of coaching."

MF — Skylar Anderson, Jr., Fairview: One of the most technically superior players in our region, has the capability of dictating the pace and style of any match.

MF — Jordan Goodwin, Sr., Broomfield: An unfortunate injury in the final regular season match of the season ended a brilliant career for the CU-bound star too early.

MF — Mira Houck, So., Jefferson Academy: The Jags sophomore "has a soccer IQ off the charts," according to her coaches and it helped her team to a Metro League title.

MF — Hannah Isenhart, Sr., Dawson: The Tufts University-bound senior passes the eye test as a dominant player and could have done it on any level. Scored 70 goals in the last two seasons.


D — Jordan Deger, Jr., Peak to Peak: The Pumas defender anchored a defense that allowed just 15 goals all season and was instrumental in their run to the 3A title game.

D — Alexis Gaffney, Jr., Legacy: Moved in from Southern California, played nearly every minute of every game, and steadied a defense that was responsible for eight clean sheets.

D — Siri O'Donnell, Sr., Boulder: Was the perfect fit to the Panthers aggressive style that put an emphasis on challenging every ball. Will continue her career at Texas A&M-Corpus Christie.

GK — Sophia Chen, Sr., Monarch: One of the big reasons the Coyotes stayed in so many games and nearly pulled off the first round upset at Ralston Valley. Will play next season at Albany.

Coach of the year - Joe Swanson, Peak to Peak: The Pumas coach guided his team through the brutal Metro League and to a state title game with a cohesive group that eventually lost in penalty kicks at Dick's.
