All-Sectional Team Omissions
Part II - GIRLS
The following players most likely deserved a spot on the
All-Sectional Team but for some reason
they were omitted, not
receiving any recognition at all. Some may have been excluded due to a
lack of a coach turning in a ballot while some teams may have reached
their limit for players to be on the list, but we'll ignore that for recognition
purposes here. Below is a list of SOME of the key omissions
from the girls' All-Sectional teams:
Anna Sullivan (Fenwick)
Sullivan allowed just 5 goals per game all season long for a Fenwick team
looking to defend their state championship after winning their own
sectional. Sullivan made 15 saves and allowed just 5 goals in the Friars'
6-5 win over Oak Park in the sectional finals, making her absence from the
All-Sectional Team quite shocking.
Becca Schumm (Evanston)
Schumm was a solid performer for the Wildkits all season long and appears
to have led all scorers at the St Ignatius Sectional, yet was not voted to
the All-Sectional Team. She was instrumental in getting Evanston to the
sectional finals, where they lost to the second-ranked hosts.
Emily Morrison (Maine West)
Morrison factored into more than half of the Warriors' scoring in 2015,
scoring 65 goals and dishing out 109 assists. This is all the more
impressive considering the 2m defender also led the team in steals and
helped West earn 19 wins and their first trip to the sectional semifinal
round. She also led the team in scoring (9 goals) in their two sectional
Erin Kempers (Stevenson)
The defensive-minded Kempers has played an important role throughout the
Patriots' undefeated season to this point and should have been given more
credit for her senior season performance.
Mae Van Beest (Marian)
Van Beest was too much of an offensive weapon for the Spartans this season
to be overlooked, yet her name did not appear in the LWN Sectional list.
Sara Luedloff (Meadows)
Luedloff had a massive season for the Mustangs, especially on the
offensive end, so her exclusion from the Schaumburg Sectional seems a bit
off. The Mustangs doubled their win total in the MSL and won two
tournaments in 2015 in large part because of her contributions.
Stephanie Jodloman (New Trier)
Jodloman made a definitive impact throughout the season and played a key
role in getting the Trevians back to the state tournament, scoring 2 goals
in a 10-4 sectional final victory over Loyola.
Taylor Stoner (Naperville North)
Stoner was an important piece of the Huskies' puzzle during a 27-4
campaign in 2015 and did not appear on the Neuqua Valley list. While the
Huskies did have plenty of weapons, Stoner was one of them and should not
have been left out.
