In addition to Player of the Year Madison Doucette, here is the rest of the DLN All-Area Girls Hockey Team.
First Team Forwards
Erin Bonner, Sr., West Chester East
The speedy senior filled up the net for the Vikings to the tune of 35 goals and 26 assists for 51 points, finishing third in the division in goals and points. Despite drawing defense’s attention, Bonner could hardly be kept off the scoresheet in leading East to a fourth-place finish in the standings. Led the Flyers Cup in goals with six.
Jess Ciarrocchi, West Chester Rustin
The future is looking bright for the Golden Knights, and the main reason is the high-scoring sophomore. She collected 33 goals and 14 assists and was in the top 5 in scoring. She also notched a pair of game-winning goals on the season.
Jordan Hower, Soph., Unionville
Any hope of a talent drain for the Indians is thwarted by a couple of super sophs. Hower fired in 28 goals for the Flyers Cup champions and notched a hat trick in Unionville’s Flyers Cup win over West Chester East, and was named to the all-tournament team.
Clare Donovan, Jr., Unionville
The junior used her skill and power to record 25 goals and 21 assists for 46 points, good for third on the team. Earned a spot on the Flyers Cup all-tournament team after notching seven points, second to teammate Madison Doucette.
FIRST TEAM DEFENDERS
Delaney Carle, Jr., Downingtown West
One of the top offensive defensemen in the girls division. She had 18 goals and 14 assists to finish second on the team with 32 points. Was also a standout in her zone. The junior did yeoman’s work in the Ches-Mont against Unionville as they nearly pulled off the major upset.
Madison Miles, Soph., Unionville
The sophomore became one of the towers of strength for the Indians, and not just for her scoring prowess, although that has quickly become eye-catching. She had nine goals and 17 assists for 26 points.
First Team Goaltender
McKenzie Myers, Sr., Unionville
The Indians had such a high-powered offense that their defensive work can get overlooked, but Miles made the stops when she was called on to make them. Myers racked up a 1.69 goals against average, with three shutouts. She also registerd all but one of Unionville’s wins.

Coach of the Year
Dave Elvin, Unionville
Oversaw one of the more dominiant seasons by any team in the county in recent years. The Indians rolled through their season, winning all 21 games. After being tested by Downingtown West in the ICSHL championship, they won their two games in the Flyers Cup by an 18-2 margin. “This is exactly what we strive for from the beginning of the season,” Elvin said after the ICSHL title game. “We wanted to be here and this was just a magical season. This is team is so deep, it doesn’t matter what players we have on the ice, we have full confidence in them.” Elvin has had plenty of talent, and they in turn, enjoy playing for him. “He’s awesome to play for,” said Madison Doucette. “He cares about his players and wanting to grow the game and it is a pleasure to play for him.”
