Senior Tiara Duffy of DIAA state champion Cape Henlopen has been named Player of the Year and leads the All-State field hockey team, which was determined by a vote of the state’s coaches.
Duffy, a defender, helped the Vikings to an 18-0-1 season and their third consecutive state title. She was the only Cape Henlopen player selected to the first team.
Three-time state runner-up Delmar placed three players on the first team – Booter Ellis, Amy Wilson and goalkeeper Tressie Windsor. Charter of Wilmington’s Paige DiGuglielmo and Morgan Lamey are on the first team, along with Wilmington Christian’s Kelly Ogle and Zosia Roberts.
The other eight first-teamers represent eight different schools: Caravel’s Jackie Gillen, Wilmington Friends’ Danielle Kuller, Mount Pleasant’s Kate Walker, Padua’s Caitlin Cooke, St. Georges’ Katie Sterling, Sussex Tech’s Torrie Huk, Tatnall’s Shay Cannon and Ursuline’s Laura Hurff.
Polytech’s Lynn Richardson was named the Coach of the Year. The Panthers finished 15-3 and reached the state semifinals.
