King’s Stella named the Class 1A MVP; a pair of Jackson players land spots on the 4A first team

Katie Stella of King’s High School has been named the 2017 Class 1A Girls Most Valuable Player by the Washington State Soccer Coaches Association.

The organization announced its MVPs, coaches of the year and all-state teams Wednesday.

Stella, a senior forward, led the Knights to the Class 1A state title in November. She scored King’s lone goal in regulation in a 2-1 shootout victory over Cascade-Leavenworth in the title game.

King’s coach Nicole Gabelein was named the 1A coach of the year.

Two players from Jackson were named to the WSSCA Class 4A all-state first team — senior forward Jadyn Edwards, The Herald’s 2017 Soccer Player of the Year, and senior goalkeeper Kayleigh Sedlacek. They were joined on the first unit by midfielders Chase Spink of Glacier Peak and Hunter Beirne of Kamiak, both juniors.

Other first-team all-state picks included Edmonds-Woodway junior defender Molly Carden (3A), Archbishop Murphy forward Lexi Klaudt (2A) and Stella (1A).
