Andrew Bertschy (Fenwick)
Bertschy made a big impact for the Friars in his sophomore season but did
not get any postseason recognition for the state's top-ranked team.
Broc Thompson/Edgar Wright (H-F)
Thompson and Wright were both consistent performers for a Vikings' team
that won the LWN Sectional, but neither one of them was mentioned in the
post-sectional awards list. One or both players should have at least been
Dan Birmingham (Brother Rice)
Birmingham emerged as one of the Crusaders' top weapons late in the
season, leading the team in scoring at the Stagg Sectional as Rice
advanced to the state tournament. He did not receive any mention in the
postseason awards list.
Jeff Stevens (Lake Forest)
Stevens was one of the top performers for a well-balanced Scouts' team, so
his absence from at least the Honorable Mention list seems like a major
Ivan Ariza/Jeronimo Chavez (Curie)
Ariza was not mentioned on the All-Sectional lists while Chavez made the
Honorable Mention list at the Fenwick Sectional; the former should have
been recognized in some way and the latter should have at the very least
received consideration for an All-State award.
Kyle Patnode (Oak Park)
Patnode's return to the water helped the Huskies win 20 games in 2013, so
his exclusion for at least a spot on the Honorable Mention list seems a
Nick Walker (Naperville Central)
The Redhawks had several candidates that should probably have garnered
postseason recognition; Walker stood out as a player who might have been
the best candidate for a spot on the Honorable Mention list.
Wally Kleinfeldt (Palatine)
While the Pirates had a handful of players that did make the All-Sectional
Team at Mundelein, there should have been room for one more, as Kleinfeldt
was a consistent scorer for a team that fell just two goals short of a
state tournament appearance.
Callie Fasching (Buffalo Grove)
The Bison had their share of ups-and-downs in 2013, but there is no
denying that Fasching is a talented goalkeeper that helped BG's defense
during a rebuilding year. She should have been considered for a spot on
one of the lists at the Mundelein Sectional.
Carly Romano (Maine West)
The Warriors' leading scorer was a key factor in getting the team into
double-digits in the win column for the first time in school history, yet
she did not garner a spot on any of the All-Sectional teams.
