Lady seahawks named to the 2014 Washington Post All-Met teams

Annually, the Washington Post names metro-area athletes to teams. These named athletes have proved their prowess in their sport over the past year. With their winning record this season, the girls varsity soccer team acquired two names on the All-Met lists. One on the first All-Met team and one earning an honorable mention.

Varsity goal keeper, junior Sara Vigen, made the first All-Met team. Vigen, already named the Virginia Conference 6 player of the year, is the first All-Met player for South Lakes since 1987. With 68 saves and six shutouts this season, Vigen more than deserved the honor.

“It was such a surprise when I found out,” Vigen said. “I couldn’t believe it.”

If having one Seahawk named wasn’t enough, sophomore Meaghan Nally received an honorable mention for her efforts this year. Nally is one of five defenders given an honorable mention. Nally also held a record of four goals and five assists this season, the best of the team.

“Getting an honorable mention was really unexpected,” Nally said. “But it’s really exciting and an honor to be named.”

Vigen and Nally were awarded for their obvious show of athletic talents but the whole team deserves to be recognized for their accomplishments this year. The girls varsity soccer team held an overall winning record of 9-4-2 this season and a record of 2-0-2 at the VA Conference 6.
