Klahowya’s Alyssa Peters, North Kitsap’s Sophia Pixton take MVP honors

North Kitsap keeper Sophia Pixton and Klahowya midfielder Alyssa Peters have been named the most valuable players in the 2A and 1A Olympic Leagues respectively.

Pixton, a junior, recorded eight shutouts and allowed just six goals in league play and 13 goals overall in leading the Vikings to a 13-6-1 record, a share of the Olympic League championship, and a state quarterfinals appearance.

Other first-team selections include Charlotte Bond, North Kitsap’s speedy winger, who scored 11 goals and had six assists this season; midfielder Mia St. Peter; and junior Audrey Zinn. Second team selection Isla Lester scored six goals in her senior season for the Vikings.

Olympic’s twin sisters Hanna and Sydney Troy were both first team selections. Hanna Troy led the West Sound in scoring with 25 goals and also had nine assists for 59 points. Sydney Troy was the leader of a revamped back four that helped the Trojans reach the state tournament for the third year in a row. Junior midfielder/forward Kiarra Richards added 12 goals and nine assists. Second-team selection Gabby Luty finished second on the team with 20 goals.

In the 1A Olympic League, Peters, the Eagles junior midfielder/forward, grabbed her first MVP award after leading her team in scoring with 17 goals and 15 assists. She was one of five Klahowya players to hit double digits. Junior forward Hope Martin (15 goals, three assists) and seniors Rylee Radford (12 goals, seven assists) and Kylie Woodrum (11 goals, eight assists) were also first-team honorees, as were defenders Hope Swenland, Hailey Connolly and Gabrielle Marcoux, who were part of a back line that conceded just 14 goals this season.
