Aces of the pitch: Presenting the 2020 All-Main Line girls soccer teams

Although the COVID-19 pandemic put the 2020 Main Line high school girls’ soccer season at risk of cancellation, the local squads were able to play a limited schedule, and leading the way among the teams that posted winning records were Lower Merion (12-0, Central League champions), Conestoga (7-3-2), Radnor (8-4), Archbishop Carroll (8-4 overall, 5-1 Catholic League), Villa Maria Academy (8-4) and Agnes Irwin (3-2).
The All-Main Line high school girls’ soccer teams are selected by the coaches. Because Main Line Media News covers 19 high schools, the Main Line Media News sports staff limits the number of sports available to first team, second team and honorable mention – but follows the priority of the coaches’ selections.
What follows are the 2020 All-Main Line high school girls soccer teams:
