Coming off a drastically improved season in which the Boulder City High School’s girls soccer team earned its first playoff berth since 2012, the program fielded five players who received postseason accolades.
Freshman midfielder Madison Manns headlined the accolades, earning 3A All-Southern Region first-team honors, after recording eight goals and three assists for the 6-9 Lady Eagles.
Earning second-team 3A Southern Region honors, senior defender Alexus Pohe was nominated for her stellar play on the Lady Eagles’ defense that forced a pair of shutouts on the season. As solid passer as well, Pohe also garnered three assists on the year.
Both Manns and Pohe also received 3A Sunrise League first-team honors.
Receiving second-team honors for the league were senior defender Julia Davidson and senior forward Jordan Trobiani, along with freshman midfielder Trinity Oeland.
Teaming with Pohe, Davidson formed one of the league’s top defensive units, with Trobiani (nine goals and one assist) and Oeland (two goals and two assists) teamed with Manns to provide the Lady Eagles with offensive firepower.
