Overlake, F, Sr.
The dynamic, Bucknell-bound player has a school-record 38 goals with 15 assists going into the Owls' Class 1A state semifinal game Friday. The former Sounders FC Academy player is part of a senior class that has been undefeated in the Emerald City League for three seasons.
Snohomish, F, Sr.
Big-time finisher led the Panthers, ranked No. 1 in the nation at one point this season, with 21 goals and 10 assists against top-notch competition in WesCo 4A. He had two hat tricks. Snohomish, the state's top-ranked 4A team, won the WesCo North at 14-0-1 and finished 17-1-1.
Newport, F, Jr.
The KingCo 4A MVP required the attention of defenses, and still was rarely stopped. Thompson finished the season with 24 goals and three assists. He raised his totals significantly after collecting four goals and three assists as a sophomore.
Decatur, F, Sr.
An explosive scorer, the SPSL 3A MVP racked up 27 goals and three assists while leading the Gators to the SPSL 3A title. The 5-foot-8, 175-pound Klavuhn is extremely fast. He had three goals in less than three minutes against one opponent. Klavuhn, also an all-league wide receiver in football, plans to walk on to play soccer for Washington.

Bainbridge, MF, Jr.
Crowley is the engine that makes the semifinal-bound Spartans click. Bainbridge's field general has two goals and seven assists, but his worth goes much deeper. He is responsible for much of the team's offensive flow. Last year he helped Bainbridge to a state runner-up finish.
Snohomish, Jr., MF
The transfer from Glacier Peak provided seven goals and nine assists and was part of strong midfield play that made the Panthers so dangerous on offense. The exceptional passer had one game with three assists and another with two.
Kentwood, D, Sr.
Peterson led a stout Conquerors defense which allowed just nine goals and posted nine shutouts as Kentwood finished one win from the state playoffs. He was an All-SPSL first-team selection four consecutive seasons.
Jefferson, D, Sr.
This versatile defender can lock down the opponent's best player with a combination of size and speed.Thoreson, who's also a solid basketball player for TJ, also can push forward and made a difference in the midfield. He had eight goals and four assists for the SPSL North champion Raiders.
Inglemoor, D, Jr.
The Vikings' season turned after coach Kevin McGibbon moved Hagan from forward to defender. After an 0-5-0 start, Inglemoor finished 5-9-3 and fell two wins short of the state playoffs. The stopper's role was a perfect fit for Hagan, who also had six goals and an assist.
Shorewood, GK, Sr.
The first-year varsity netminder was 20-0-0 with 17 shutouts and a 95-percent save rate before Saturday's shootout loss to Bainbridge. The 6-foot, 200-pounder allowed only four goals, helping the T-birds to a No. 1 state ranking and their first WesCo 3A title since 2008.
The second-year varsity coach guided the Thunderbirds to a 20-0-0 mark going into their season-ending loss to Bainbridge in the Class 3A quarterfinals. The T-birds outscored opponents 66-7. Shorewood had only seven wins in 2010 and 12 last year.
