It was quite a season for soccer in District 10-5A, as all four Wylie ISD teams made the postseason.

Once there, the Wylie High School teams made a short appearance before hanging up their cleats, while Wylie East’s had a longer run; the boys reached the regional finals and the girls grabbed the big prize: the 2015 Class 5A state title.

The success each WISD team had naturally resulted in many players, and one coach, earning some form of All-District recognition.

The biggest award was scooped up by Wylie goalie Jennifer Hiddink, the 10-5A MVP. Naturally, the state champion Lady Raiders were honored with several individual accolades: sophomore Addie McCain was the Midfielder of the Year; junior Valiree Morris was the co-Utility Player of the Year along with McKinney sophomore Joanna Wells; and senior Brooke-Lynn Scroggins was the Goalkeeper of the Year.

The other individual winners were McKinney North senior Olivia Ditmer (Offensive Player of the Year), McKinney junior Jada Holmes (Midfielder of the Year) and Prosper freshman Kat Rogers (Newcomer of the Year).

Local players making the girls’ first team were Wylie East seniors Asia Revely, Brittany Jones, Sarah O’Neall, Morgan Cave and junior Megan Paul. Wylie players who made the first team were seniors Kelzy Jepsen, Casey Mize, Cynthia Lopez and sophomore Bailey Wardwell.

Second-team selections were Wylie East juniors Maddi Simms, Samantha Ramirez and Jordyn Perry, and Wylie sophomores Abby Ostrem, Alex O’Steen, junior Nikki Osborne and senior Taylor Nichols.

Honorable mention status was earned by Wylie East sophomores Tori Smith and Erin Vana and freshman Emma Chambers, as well as Wylie senior Haley Pierce, freshman Hailey Gonzales and sophomore Skylar Cole.

The District 10-5A champ Wylie East Raiders were well represented with individual accolades, including John True being named Coach of the Year.

East senior Ivan Ulloa was the district MVP, while fellow senior Filip Janjic was named Offensive Player of the Year. Wylie High sophomore Wariebi Jituboh was the Newcomer of the Year.

The other 10-5A individual award winners were Prosper senior Jordan LeClair (Defensive Player of the Year), McKinney North senior Kyle Biggio (Utility Player of the Year) and Sherman senior Joseph Khalaf (Goalkeeper of the Year).

First-team honors were handed out to Wylie East sophomore Eno Benjamin, East senior Benito Silverio, East sophomore Everett Janway, Wylie juniors Johnny Hanifan and Evans Wiggles and Pirates’ senior Tristen Loven.

The second-team choices were Wylie juniors Nic Douthit and Alex Long along with freshman Colton Mowry, and Wylie East sophomores Mauricio Jimenez, Corey Gentle, Justin Robinson, Pete Townsend and junior Chandler Parrish.
