Holland Crook, Beamer
The Titan senior is the most decorated player in the history of Todd Beamer High School.

Crook has already committed to play soccer in the fall at Arizona State University.

As a sophomore, Crook had 19 goals and four assists, including hat tricks in four straight matches. Last year, she totaled 18 goals. Crook’s father is former professional soccer player Bill Crook, who played for the Tacoma Stars of the Major Indoor Soccer League, among others.

Jessica Niewoehner, Beamer

The tough-minded defender helped Beamer pitch eight shutouts during the season, including a 1-0 win over the Jackson Wolves in the opening round of the Class 4A State Girls Soccer Tournament. Niewoehner also tallied four goals from the backline. She was also a first-team, All-SPSL South Division selection.
Avery Salisbury, Beamer
The junior was the quintessential defender for the Titans this season. The first-team, All-SPSL South Division selection didn’t tally a point this season for Beamer, but helped the Titans hold eight teams scoreless.
Sasha Nevin, Jefferson
Despite finishing with a 4-10-1 record in the rugged SPSL North Division, the Jefferson defense kept the Raiders in pretty much every game this season. The defense, led by Nevin, allowed only 25 goals in 15 matches and pitched a pair of shutouts. Jefferson lost three matches 1-0 and eight of their 10 losses were by two goals or less. Nevin was a second-team, All-SPSL North selection.
Sydnee Patin, Decatur
