State runners-up Ram soccer girls collect post-season honors

MONTROSE – Following a second place finish in the Division 4 state tourney, the Montrose varsity soccer girls team collected a host of post-season accolades.

Eight of the Lady Rams received Genesee Area Conference honors. Paige Renshaw, Hailey Sadler and Remington Hobson were first team honorees, while Ellory Barnette, Alexis Rush and Amber Wing were named to the second team and Abbie Reich and Emma Gipe were honorable mentions.

Renshaw, Sadler, Wing, Hobson, Rush, Barnette, Gipe and Allia Town received all-district recognition, while Renshaw, Rush, Hobson, Wing and Sadler were all-region.

Renshaw and Rush were named first team all-state, while Sadler was third team and Hobson and Wing were honorable mention.

The team made academic all-state with a grade point average of 3.42, while Jeanna Harrington (3.85 GPA) and Sadler (3.74 GPA) received individual academic all-state recognition.

“We set team records for most wins in a season (23 – the most in the state this year), most goals scored (113), lowest goals against average (0.32 – nine goals allowed over 28 games), and 22 shutouts,” said Montrose coach Jason Perrin. “The 22 shutouts is a state record and our keeper Alexis Rush tied for the most shutouts in state history with 22.”

He added, “We’ve never had eight all- GAC selections before, and the five all-state selections are an all-time high for us as well. We’ve always preached that team success is first and foremost and that if we succeed as a team, the individual awards would follow. The girls that were recognized definitely deserved it along with some girls who didn’t get recognized.” “Paige (Renshaw) and Alexis (Rush) are only the second and third players in our program history to earn first team all-state honors, so that’s a huge achievement. The academic all-state awards are perhaps the most important, though. I’m very proud of the success Hailey (Sadler) and Jeanna (Harrington) had in the classroom and for our team to compile a 3.42 GPA overall is just tremendous,” Perrin said.
