Emma Arden

Emma Arden takes the ball downfield.

League champion Valley Catholic continues to lead the way and reap the rewards in Cowapa League girls soccer, but Astoria and Seaside continue to close the gap between the Valiants and the next two best teams in the Cowapa.

While Valley Catholic led the all-league selections with seven players (five on the first team), the Fishermen and Gulls were right behind, with a combined nine all-league players (five for Seaside, four for Astoria).

The league’s Player of the Year honor went to Valley Catholic senior Casmira Fox, while Rainier’s Jamie Knox was named Goalkeeper of the Year and the Valiants’ Kibwe Cuffie earned Coach of the Year honors.

Seaside had three first team selections — senior Emma Arden and juniors Lilli Taylor and Abby Brien, one of two goalkeepers on the first team.

The Fishermen landed seniors Karen Jiminez and Maddie Sisley on the first team.
