CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Gate City junior midfielder Megan Edwards was named to the 2014 VHSL 2A girls all-state soccer team, released Tuesday.
Five players from Maggie Walker, four from George Mason and three from Radford helped comprise the 16-person all-state team.
George Mason dominated the 2A boys all-state team, placing five on the honorary squad. Riverheads had three representatives.
Each VHSL all-state team includes five forwards, five midfielders, five defenders and one goalkeeper. There is no second team or honorable mention, and only first-team all-region selections are eligible for selection to the all-state team.
Each all-state selection committee is composed of eight soccer coaches (four from each region), and two athletic directors/directors of student activities (one from each region). Each group has its own committee.
