Two Demons earn 1st-team accolades

A pair of Glenwood Springs High School seniors earned first-team recognition earlier this week when the all-league girls soccer team for the Class 4A Western Slope League was named by the league’s coaches.

The Demons’ Lilly McSwain and Jackie Knott were two of the four Glenwood players who were recognized by the league’s coaches.

McSwain, who was named the team’s Player of the Year and will play Division I women’s soccer at the University of Denver in the fall, finished the season with 25 goals and five assists. Knott, a midfielder and defender, scored three goals with six assists in the Demons’ 10-5-0 campaign this past spring.

Earning an honorable mention was Rifle senior Julia Navarro, who was one of the Bears’ key players over the course of the season.

Earning an honorable mention from Glenwood were junior Jenna Brown and sophomore Gracie McSwain.

All-league WSL award winners from both Class 3A and 4A will take part in All-Star exhibition matches during the Emily Johnson Play It Forward 3-on-3 Soccer Tournament on June 7.
