The soccer season has been long gone but just last week, the All-Metro girl's soccer team was finally released. Fortunately for Ascension, nine players from the parish made the cut.

East Ascension carried the most selections with five as they earned a No. 14 seeding for the playoffs and won their opening-round matchup against Sulphur 2-1. They eventually fell to Fontainebleau 1-0 in the regional round.

Leading the charge for the Lady Spartans were their two first-team All-Metro selections Kayla Bourgeois and Kelsy Hutchison.

Bourgeois was an offensive spark for East Ascension all season as she scored 16 goals and chalked up 24 assists.

Her fellow senior Hutchison was the Lady Spartans' best defensive player and District 5-5A Defensive MVP. She helped East Ascension pitch 11 shutouts for the year and offensively, she scored three goals and collected three assists.

On the second team, Rebecca Austin made it on the strength of 38 goals and 17 assists while Ally Miller joined her with 19 goals and 12 assists. Finishing up East Ascension's selections was goalkeeper Lynda Boylan--who finished the year with 56 saves.

Two Dutchtown players joined the five Lady Spartans in first-teamer Ashley Alexander and second-team selection Sarah Patterson.

Alexander was District 5-5A's Offensive MVP as she piled up 16 goals and six assists in the process of leading the Lady Griffins to the second round of the playoffs. It was there that they fell 3-1 to eventual state runner-up St. Scholastica.

Patterson made All-Metro second team. The freshman finished the year with six goals and six assists.

Just like Dutchtown, St. Amant placed two players on the All-Metro roster. Destiny Bourgeois was named to the first team while Brooke Trabeau found her spot on the second.

Destiny Bourgeois was the Lady Gators' top offensive threat as they made the playoffs as a No. 22 seed. They fell in the opening round to No. 11 St. Joseph's Academy 1-0.

Bourgeois' fellow senior Trabeau was a solid team leader for St. Amant all year as she rounded out the Lady Gators' All-Metro selections.
