For the third straight year, Eastwood junior attacker MaKenna Souder is first team Division III All-Ohio.

In three seasons, she has provided a school record 238 points for the Eagles on a school record 99 goals and 40 assists and she has one more year remaining. Each year of her high school career she scored 33 goals, but had 10 assists this year, 17 assists her sophomore year and 13 her freshman year. 

Her 83 points last year are a school record, and her 33 goals during her freshman season is a school record which she has tied each year since.

Souder is the Northwest Ohio Scholastic Soccer Coaches Association Division III and Alan Miller Jewelers All-Press Player of the Year, leading the Eagles to an 18-3 season, No. 5 ranking in the final statewide coaches’ poll, a repeat Northern Buckeye Conference championship, district championship and regional runners-up finish.

Ohio’s D-I coaches picked senior forward Isabella Mabry second team All-Ohio. Mabry led Clay with 46 points on 17 goals and 12 assists.

Clay finished 10-6-1 and won a Three Rivers Athletic Conference championship. Mabry, a co-captain and the other co-captain, defender Lauren Clark, were two of only five seniors on the squad.

Woodmore senior center back Sydney Gillig and Lake junior forward Ava Ayers were second team All-Ohio in D-III.

Woodmore first-year coach Lauren Colangelo says her defense came up big behind Gillig and freshman goalkeeper Layla McGinnis.

“Our center back (Gillig) is a huge part of our team,” Colangelo said. “She is a senior and is definitely the leader of the team. We have a freshman goalkeeper, who because of our center back, has only allowed 19 goals this year,” with 10 of those goals coming to Eastwood.

Ayers tied with teammate Hayley St. John, a senior forward, for Lake’s scoring lead with 44 points each. Ayers had 17 goals and 10 assists and St. John had 16 goals and 12 assists.

Lake finished 13-5-1 with three league losses but handed Eastwood their only conference loss of the season, 1-0, on a goal by Ayers. Avers is first team All-NBC, All-Press and all-district, and coach Don Jablonski says she was seventh in total vote getting on the all-district ballot.

In addition, Oak Harbor coach Renee Williamson got her 250th career win this season. The Oak Harbor girls team has never had a losing season in the 18 years Williamson has been at the helm.

This year, the Rockets finished 14-4-1 overall and 7-0-1 in the Sandusky Bay Conference Bay Division to win a league championship.
