The St Louis Post-Dispatch named their All-Metro squad and there are four members of the first team who will be wearing Missouri State maroon this Fall:
Katelyn Frederickson, Nerinx Hall midfielder – A two-time second-team selection, Frederickson was as versatile as any player in the area, filling whatever role the Markers required. Much of the Nerinx attack went through Frederickson, who finished the season with 10 goals and 15 assists and who will continue her career at Missouri State.
Becky Handley, St. Joseph’s Forward – In soccer and in basketball, Handley left it all on the field and court. An attacker in every sense, she led the Angels with 13 goals and 12 assists and was part of a senior crew that finished 78-14-3 and made three state appearances. A third-teamer as a junior, Handley has signed with Missouri State.
Claire Hulcer, St. Joseph’s Defender – One of the region’s top markers, Hulcer was routinely assigned the other team’s main scoring threat and excelled in making her a non-threat. The Missouri State recruit also showed the ability to get into the attack for St. Joe’s, contributing a goal and three assists.
Megan Jaskowiak, Althoff Midfielder – A strong two-way midfielder who was sometimes overshadowed by teammate and Player of the Year Megan Pawloski, Jaskowiak moves up after earning second-team honors a year ago. One of several top recruits for Missouri State, Jaskowiak was among the area scoring leaders with 30 goals and 13 assists this spring.
SLU signed two 1st teamers which will help enhance the competitive level the annual game always offers 🙂
