Logan Montel, Rebecca Washburn and Skylar Wall were the Lady Bulldogs to make the team.

Coach Mike Marston knew the girls had the ability to achieve good things this year.

“All three of these players were the leading vote-getters for the second team All-State,” he said. “I was unable to cast my vote, because of timing, but if I were there I would assume that all three of these girls would have made first-team.”

Montel was the only graduating starter and led the team in both goals and assists.

“She really set the tempo for our attack and is an extremely skilled player,” Marston said.

Washburn is a center midfielder whom Marston describes as a dominant workhorse on the ball.

“She is really developing as a leader,” said the coach. “It’s going to be exciting to see how she plays next year.”

Wall is a defender and is considered to be the glue that holds the Lady Bulldogs’ defense together.

“Skylar has been our defensive leader since the day she touched the varsity field in her first freshman match,” Marston said.

“I’m really proud,” he added. “They all deserve it.”
