After advancing to a regional tournament for the first time in the history of its program, several members of Burnet High School girls soccer team were selected for several individual awards by District 18-4A coaches.
Sophomore Amelia Griffin was named the district’s most valuable player, while sophomore Kaycie Banton took the silver boot award for the most assists in district that totaled 18. And head coach Kimberly Myhre was named the coach of the year after guiding the Lady Dawgs to third place in the district standings with a 10-4 record, 19-8-3 overall.
Named first team all-district are senior Katelynn Massey and sophomores Juliet Morales, Reagan Shipley and Griffin.
Second team all-district selections are seniors Caty Crow and Bella Poppell, junior Caroline Valencia and Banton.
The honorable mention members are senior Emma Gonzalez, junior Lainey Rye and sophomore Haylee Bartlett.
The Lady Dawgs didn’t forget to take care of their school work either.
The academic all-district team includes freshman Adrianna Briggs, sophomores Ari Chavez, Isela Hernadez, Julie Suazo, Banton, Bartlett, Griffin and Shipley, juniors Denise Penaloza and Rye, and seniors Emma Gonzalez, Maria Leon, Dani Montalvo, Madi Stires, Crow, Massey and Poppell.
All seven seniors were named academic all-state.
But Myhre noted playing four rounds in the playoffs isn’t possible with the community’s support.
“We made history in Burnet, Texas for girls soccer,” she said. “Thank you so much for the constant support throughout the season. It is a season that we will never forget. The girls are already counting down to next season.”
