Beverly Brittingham, Yorktown

The goal-oriented senior attacks with speed, power and touch whenever she possesses the ball. She followed a 28-goal sophomore campaign with 25 last season. Brittingham is transitioning into the role of a distributor for the Tigers this season. She netted six goals and tallied five assists in the opening four games.

Sydney Clasby, Central

The Bearcat standout missed last season after tearing her anterior-cruciate ligament. Central coach Amanda Guess said the senior is back to speed this season and that spells trouble for opponents. Clasby netted 32 goals as a freshman and followed with 16 as a sophomore. She opened her senior campaign with a hat-trick against Wapahani.

Courtney Denney, New Castle

Whenever the New Castle junior touches the ball, the opponent is on high alert. Denney beats her opponents with her physicality and deft touch. She ranked second in the state in goals last year with 49. Denney tacked on 12 assists, too, for a Trojans team that posted a 17-3 record and won a sectional championship.

Olivia Malott, New Castle

The New Castle sophomore splashed onto the East Central Indiana soccer scene in grand fashion last season. The Trojan finished sixth in the state in goals scored (33) and fourth in assists (25) as a freshman. Malott runs opponents into the ground with her extraordinary endurance.

Sarah Weisenberger, Delta

The senior sweeper anchors the backline for the Eagles. Weisenberger instructs the defense on when to push up to draw opponents offside, and she clears the ball aggressively and with authority. She is a threat to score, too, whenever Delta coach Jacci Glancy elects to move her up to midfield or striker.
