COACH OF THE YEAR

The Seagulls forward scored 12 goals and assisted on eight others in leading an Everett offense that averaged more than 2.5 goals per game this season in earning a 3A state berth and quarterfinal appearance.
Forward, Meadowdale, Jr.

According to Bruins head coach Jamie Gay, the Bruins midfielder “has a great command of the ball in possession with field presence and vision.” As a four-year starter, Jenkins helped build Cascade from a 5-9-2 record in 2009 to a district title in 2012.

Defender, Snohomish, Jr.
The Panthers defender was not only the leader of a defense that held opponents to a goal or less in 10 games this season but a key part of the Snohomish offense, scoring six goals and seven assists. Her “magical foot” was also a big part of Snohomish free and corner kick success this season, according to VanAssche.
