Garrett Floden (McHenry)
Floden was one of the main cogs in the Warriors' offense plus scored 5 of
the team's 6 goals while also scoring the game-tying and game-winning goals in
McHenry's 6-5 win over Libertyville in the
the BG Sectional.
Ivan Ariza (Curie)
The Mercyhurst-bound senior has one of the best all-around games in the
state of Illinois yet missed out on any mention and will likely not be an
All-State player after a banner year.
Jack Mahoney (Fenwick)
Mahoney was a key contributor for a Friars' team that has only lost once
thus far in 2015. His emergence has made an already deep team even more
dangerous as they head to the state tournament.
Jeronimo Chavez (Curie)
Chavez was an offensive force for the Condors and was a glaring absence
from the Fenwick Sectional's listing even after Curie knocked off St
Patrick to advance to the sectional finals.
Joe Lawrence (Naperville Central)
Not sure what more a goaltender has to do to get credit after a 29-2
season and a trip to the state tournament, but the Naperville Central goalie has made his
mark in his first full season in the net and has a deep Redhawks' team in
prime position to battle for their first-ever state tournament title this
Kurt Holzer (Stevenson)
Holzer could be a key factor in the Patriots' latest attempt to win a
state title yet did not get mentioned for his efforts at the BG Sectional.
He may make his opponents pay for the slight next weekend at the state
Lucas Brace (Niles West)
Brace was a major contributor for a Wolves' team that played one of the
most difficult schedules in the state and scored 2 of his team's 3 goals
in a 4-3 loss to Loyola in the sectional semifinal round.
Ragen Murphy (Loyola)
Murphy was such an important piece of Loyola's attempt to defend their
title that it seems a shame that he did not get any recognition at the end
of the season. He led the team with 2 goals in their 4-3 win over Niles
West before missing out on the team's sectional final game against New
Will Skowron (Fenwick)
Skowron emerged to take over in goal at the start of the season and never
relinquished the position for a team that has lost once in 2015. Not only
that, but he earned a 10-0 shutout win over Curie in the sectional final
game that sent the Friars back to the state tournament. Baffling.
