Staff report

A year removed from winning the Class 4A state championship, the Guyer girls soccer team fell short of repeating in 2014 but still was well represented on the All-District 11-4A team.

The Lady Wildcats, who shared the district championship with Trophy Club Nelson, which went to the state tournament, landed the most valuable player honor with senior forward/midfielder Hannah Alspach.

The Auburn signee led Guyer with 12 assists and was tied for the team lead with 21 goals with the district’s co-offensive player of the year Brittany Crabtree, a Guyer junior who’s committed to Texas A&M. Guyer also had a co-utility player of the year in Peyton Bucklew, who shared the honor with Argyle senior Hannah Neece.

Denton freshman Olivia Burns was awarded co-defensive newcomer honors, and Lake Dallas goalkeeper Ryleigh Bohnenstiehl was named the district’s top keeper after helping carry an offensively starved team to the postseason.

On the boys side in 11-4A, the MVP was state champion forward Ryan Dandan of Nelson, while several Denton-area players also earned superlatives.

Guyer’s Luis Muro capped his career with an offensive player of the year honor, while teammate Jordan Reyes took home defensive player of the year honors.

Denton’s Chris Torres claimed midfielder of the year honors, while teammate Michael Husbands was named the district’s top utility player.

Two local freshmen also earned superlative honors, as Lake Dallas’ Dasean Bennett was named the newcomer of the year while Argyle’s Dylan Sadler earned top freshman honors.

On the boys District 5-5A team, Ryan’s Fabian Zuniga was named to the first team as a midfielder. On the girls side, Ryan freshman Brittany Eccles earned first-team honors.
