All-Sectional Omissions

Part I

 

The following players deserved a spot on the All-Sectional First Team or Second Team, but for some inexplicable reason, they were omitted, either making the Honorable Mention list or simply not receiving any recognition at all. Below is a list of three key omissions from both the boys' and girls' All-Sectional teams:

 

BOYS

Danny Farmer (Fenwick)

The emergence of Friars' sophomore Danny Farmer helped the Friars get off to an excellent start; he made a greater impact for half the season when brother Matt was sidelined with an injury. Nonetheless, the Fenwick youngster didn't make the recognition list at all, even though his impact has and will continue to help the Friars attempt to reclaim the state title in 2013.

 

John Pretet/Justin Simmonds/Nick Traxler (STC North)

The North Stars put together a 17-win season and deserved at least one field player on the All-Sectional awards list. Of the many choices that performed consistently throughout the 2013 season, at least one of Pretet, Simmonds, or Traxler should have seen their name in lights after the NV Sectional.

 

Nolan Roberts (Naperville North)

The most glaring omission of all has to be the Huskies' Nolan Roberts, the team's second-leading scorer and the team leader in steals for the state's third-ranked squad. He received Honorable Mention status, meaning he is ineligible for All-State recognition, even though his impact in helping the Huskies return to state for a chance at a title-run has put him in the upper-echelon of the state's best players. North also dominated their sectional, with Roberts one of the main factors, as the junior recorded 9 goals in the three game set.

 

 

 

GIRLS

Allison Travetto (Stevenson)

Throughout the 2013 season, Travetto was one of the most consistent scorers for the Patriots, yet she did not receive any mention on the postseason awards list. Just counting the sectional playoffs, she tallied 5 goals in comfortable wins over Lake Forest and Wheeling and then led the team with 2 scores in their 6-5 title game loss to Mundelein. She easily deserved a spot on one of the first two teams.

 

Kerry Goodspeed (Glenbrook North)

The Spartans finished the year on a remarkable hot streak and beat Maine East in the opening round of their sectional, yet did not get one player on the All-Sectional Team. Their goaltender, Kerry Goodspeed, should have been their most likely candidate to notch at least a Second Team position, but she was unfairly omitted from getting mentioned at all.

 

Nicole Guyett/Sarah Stern (STC North)

The North Stars' polished off their first 20-win season in team history with a quarterfinal win over Metea Valley and a near upset of Naperville Central at the NV Sectional. Yet, their two best field players could only make the bottom of the Honorable Mention list when at least one of them should have been on one of the two teams and could have snagged an All-State award as well.
