Sun News announces All Houston-Peach girls soccer team

June 19, 2013 

The combination of skill and athleticism among female soccer players has never been better.

An all-star team of the county’s best would be a competitive test for several high school boys teams from 10 years ago. That’s the good news.

The bad news? All that quality makes it really hard to pick an all-star team.

Player of the Year: Jessica Do, Houston County: Just a sophomore, Do led the Lady Bears in goals from her midfield position. Blessed with good speed, Do also has the patience to build an attack and the skill to finish.

GK: Centara Nulf, Northside: Logged the equivalent of 22.5 hours in goal.

FW: Taylor Poole, Northside: Breakout season for the senior with 19 goals.

FW: Lizzie Upchurch, Houston County: Accomplished finisher was all-region selection as a sophomore.

FW: Khayla Owens, Veterans: Another sophomore. Fast and physical.

MF: Anna Maddox, Northside: A tireless runner, the junior produced 12 assists.

MF: Rachel Preston, Houston County: Junior is a fierce tackler with strong ball skills.

MF: Cecilia Aguilar, Peach County: Trojans’ MVP as a junior.

MF: Valerie McLure, Westfield: Multi-sport star chose basketball in college.

MF: Lauren Sutton, Warner Robins: Dangerous sophomore goal scorer.

FB: Jada Foor, Veterans: Region 2-AAAA defensive POY as a sophomore.

FB: Mary Jan Lollis, Perry: Senior defender helped Panthers get back to the playoffs.

FB: Sydney Humphries, Houston County: Senior sweeper controlled HoCo’s defense.

FB: Jamie Epperson, Northside: Senior captained the Lady Eagles’ defense.
