GV’s Chenoweth wins 3A WSL Co-Player of the Year
Coming off of a sophomore season in which she scored an impressive 45 goals, Grand Valley’s Shaya Chenoweth earned the 3A Western Slope League girl’s soccer Co-Player of the Year award, tying with Vail Mountain’s Tess Johnson for the league honor.
Chenoweth played a big part in leading the Cardinals to a 7-8 (3-6) record on the year, narrowly missing a playoff berth in 3A. On the year, Chenoweth averaged three goals a game, finishing the year with 94 total points (3 assists) in 2017.
Joining Chenoweth and Johnson on the all-conference first-team list was Coal Ridge senior defender Dana Kotz (two goals, one assist) and junior midfielder Samantha Dunn (12 goals, seven assists, 31 points). Kotz played a key role in the Titans allowing just 2.4 goals against per game on the year, turning away the opponent’s best attackers, while Dunn played a great two-way game for the playoff-bound Titans.
Basalt senior forward Callahan Card (17 goals, 14 assists, 48 points) and freshman Taylor Glen (15 goals, four assists, 34 points) earned first-team honors for the Longhorns, while Roaring Fork sophomore goalkeeper Odalis Corcuera (70 saves, 1.28 goals allowed per game) earned first-team honors for the Rams.
Outside of the first team, Coal Ridge senior Kaitlyn Harlow (six goals, five assists, 17 points), junior Santana Martinez (five goals, six assists, 16 points) and sophomore defender Adriana Vargas (three goals, six points) earned honorable mention honors for the Titans, while Basalt junior Kate Schrock (two goals, 94 saves, 1.85 goals allowed per game), Roaring Fork junior Camilla Wikum (13 goals, one assists, 27 points) and Grand Valley junior Elizabeth Pena earned honorable mention honors as well.
