CO-OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR

Audrey Treanor

School: Arlington

Grade: 12 

Position: Forward/Midfielder

Vital stats: Treanor wasn’t a prolific scorer, nor was her position even defined. She was simply a playmaker whose impact was reflected on the field, if not box scores. With her vision and savvy, she was a versatile facilitator at forward and center-midfield. Injuries forced Arlington to rejigger its lineup and Treanor willingly switched positions and excelled in multiple roles, leading the Admirals to the Section 1 Class A playoffs. Treanor, who recently committed to Kean University, had four goals and three assists. But it was her defense, transition skills and passing that earned her Section 1 All-Elite honors.

Vital stats: With her hard shots, instincts and slick dribbling, Fusco was a lethal scorer for the Patriots and a feared offensive threat. The center forward scored 12 goals and dished eight assists, leading John Jay to the Section 1 Class A playoffs. Fusco’s stick skills, including her signature air dribble, made her a nightmare for defenders in space. A lacrosse standout headed to Iona College, Fusco also received field hockey Section 1 All-Elite honors.

DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR

Kelsey Mulligan

School: Roy C. Ketcham

Grade: 11

Vital stats: Had she been an offensive player, Mulligan’s seven assists and three goals might’ve been enough to garner All-Star honors. Instead, those numbers came as bonus for the area’s premier center back. With speed and height, combined with her skills and smarts, Mulligan not only made it hard for the opposition to operate, but difficult to even maintain possession. A two-time Journal All-Star, she also received All-Elite honors in Section 1.
