Wade, Harvey named first team all-Jeffco

FARMER’S KORNER – Two of the best 11 girls soccer players in the 4A Jeffco League this spring played for Summit High School.That’s according to the league’s coaches, who recently voted Lady Tigers stars Courtney Wade and Hannah Harvey first team all-Jeffco.Wade, a senior and one of the team’s on-field leaders, garners the first-team distinction for her play at midfield this season. Time and again she led Summit’s ball-control efforts and short-passing game by taking charge from one end of the field to another. She showed plenty of versatility, too, leading the way at defense one moment then rifling a shot into the net at the other end of the field the next moment.Harvey’s performance this season was equally valuable to the Tigers, who finished 4-7-1 overall, and 3-5-1 in league play. The lightning-quick sophomore scored 10 of her team’s 17 goals, and was rarely not the most dangerous player on the field.She scored from inside and out, placing precise shots into corners when the situation called for it, and charging past numerous defenders when she saw an opportunity to create a chance of her own.Harvey’s goal total mounted up despite the fact that she missed some time due to conflicting schedules between the SHS soccer team and her club hockey squad. She is also one of the top female hockey players at her age in Colorado.Summit senior Jackie Koetteritz and sophomore Emily Hawkins joined their two teammates on the all-Jeffco list, each getting named second team all-league by the Jeffco coaches. Koetteritz’s aggressiveness and versatility at midfield marked her career at SHS, while Hawkins excelled in goal in her first year since transferring from Texas.Athletic seniors Kirsten Cooper and Katie Hartman – both of whom are among the top high school-aged alpine ski racers in the nation – received honorable mention all-Jeffco for Summit.
