Payton Aselton and Brieanna Dell are both high-scoring underclassmen and, in year where younger players took over the pitch, the duo split MVP honors on The Chronicle’s 2017 All-Area Girls.
The All-Area team features just four seniors and two juniors. Five sophomores made the team and two freshman burst onto the scene to make the squad.
Helping Adna to the State 1B/2B semifinals for the fifth consecutive season, Aselton was a midfielder that put in work on both ends of the field.
“I thought she played great this season. She had to step up and be a leader and she really did a good job of taking control on the field with positive influence,” Adna coach Juli Aselton said. “She got some confidence in all those free kicks she was making and, I think that’s going to help her out for her select team also.”
