For a second straight season, Strath Haven forward Lizzie King finished with 13 goals. But this year, the senior added 12 assists to her account, bolstering her playmaking credentials and earning the Panthers the sixth seed in the District 1 Class 4A tournament and the Central League title.
Those accomplishments also garnered King her third straight All-Central nod and second straight Central League MVP honor, as voted by league coaches.
King is joined on the first team by teammates Claire Van Duyne and goalie Carly Perlman, who splits the first-team honor with Garnet Valley’s Ashley Bufano. The Jags’ Gia Dragoni also earned a first-team berth.
Fellow districts qualifiers Radnor (Maura Holst), Penncrest (Gia Martyn) and Haverford (Brianna Blair) picked up one first-teamer each.
Below is the full list of honorees.
