Three area seniors are first-team selections on the Kentucky Girls’ Soccer Coaches’ All-State Team, which was released Wednesday.

Making the first team were Elizabethtown forward Lexy Hazle, Elizabethtown left wing Emily Richardson and Central Hardin goalkeeper Savannah Haberman.

Hazle, a Bellarmine University commitment, scored a team-high 28 goals and recorded a team-best 23 assists as she led the Lady Panthers (17-6-2) to the 17th District and 5th Region tournament titles.

Richardson had 23 goals and nine assists. She scored the game’s lone goal Saturday in a 1-0 quarterfinal win over fourth-ranked Louisville Assumption that helped Elizabethtown to become the first area girls’ team – as well as the first region girls’ squad – to advance to the state tournament’s final four.

Haberman, an Eastern Kentucky University commitment, totaled eight shutouts for the district tournament runner-up Lady Bruins (9-8-3). She was a member of two state tournament teams. She was the Area Defensive Player of the Year last season along with then-senior defender Halle Pinkham of Elizabethtown.

The area had three honorable mentions in Elizabethtown sophomore wing Dani Wilson, Central Hardin senior defender Kendra Ball and John Hardin senior defender Shiann Washington.

Wilson had 11 goals and 10 assists. She had the game-winning assist in the state quarterfinals, scored the only goal in a regular-season win at Central Hardin and scored a game-high two goals in the region final.

Ball had one goal and one assist and helped anchor a defense which held foes to less than 1.4 goals per game.

Washington had two goals and one assist to help the Lady Bulldogs (11-7-1) finish third in the district’s regular-season standings.

All six players have been invited to the Kentucky Girls’ All-State Games, which are Nov. 10 at the Elizabethtown Sports Park. The East-West honorable mention game is the first game, while the second match is the East-West first-second team game. Game times are to be determined.
