All-Sectional Team Omissions

Part III

 

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

 

BOYS

Joey Dalesandro/Ian Ivkovich/Scott DePuy (Neuqua)

Hard to pick from this list of Neuqua Valley players because all of them were major contributors for a team that won 18 games and beat Waubonsie Valley before bowing out to the top-ranked team in the state in the semifinals (NN). All three scored in the win over the Warriors and Dalesandro racked up double-digit steals in the game.

 

Matt Kearney (Loyola)

Kearney continues to excel in big games, part of the reason Loyola has entered the state tournament ranked second. He led the team with 11 goals at the Stevenson Tourney, which included wins over Fenwick, Oak Park, and Stevenson. He scored 6 key goals as the Ramblers won the MCAC Tourney with wins over Fenwick, St Ignatius, and St Rita. And he put in 7 goals in victories over New Trier and Niles West to help Loyola win the GBS Sectional. That's quite the resume.

 

 

 

GIRLS

Colleen Ahern (Loyola)

The Ramblers fell one goal shy of a repeat appearance at the state tournament, but it wasn't for a lack of effort from Ahern in goal. She made 23 saves in the final round of the Catholic League Tournament, blocked 10 shots to help Loyola get to the GBS Sectional final, and helped keep her team in the title game with several key stops before the Ramblers fell to New Trier 7-6 last Saturday.

 

Jenna Zitkus (Maine South)

Zitkus performed at a high level throughout the season and capped off her ten-week effort with 4 goals in Maine South's sectional quarterfinal victory over Hersey last week. She also had plenty of fine regular season performances, like her 10 goal effort at the St Viator Tournament.

 

Karissa McBride (Evanston)

McBride was a key contributor on both ends of the pool for an Evanston team that rapidly rose up the rankings to the #8 spot at the end of Week 10. Her name was constantly filling up the scoresheet for the Wildkits as they racked up 22 wins and ended up one victory shy of the state tournament.

 

Katie Difiglio/Katie Quinn (STC North)

Difiglio and Quinn played vital roles in the North Stars' 18-win season that saw them end Week 10 ranked #21. They were consistent scorers all season long, but punctuated their fine seasons when Quinn drew an ejection that led to Difiglio's game winning goal with six seconds left in North's 13-12 win over Hinsdale Central in the sectional quarterfinals.

 

Maggie Hennigan (Mother McAuley)

Hennigan could prove to be one of the most dangerous weapons at the state tournament; she started the run that helped the Mighty Macs overtake Bremen in the sectional finals and led the team with 3 goals in the crucial victory. She regularly contributed key goals in wins over Mundelein, Loyola, Lyons, Stevenson and the list goes on.
