Soccer stars honored

Grantsville’s Wangsgard earns a spot on First Team for third year in a row 

Tooele County’s three high school girls soccer teams all made an impression on the pitch this past fall — so, it was fitting that several of the county’s top soccer stars earned spots on this year’s Class 3A and Class 4A All-State teams, announced Tuesday.

Grantsville junior Whitney Wangsgard was named to the Class 3A First Team for the third consecutive season after setting the state’s all-time career goals record. She scored 56 goals this fall, the second-most in a single season in state history, and added 12 assists to help the Cowboys set a school record with 11 wins. Wangsgard will enter her senior season with 141 career goals, 10 more than the previous state record.

Two other Grantsville underclassmen earned Honorable Mention in Class 3A. Junior midfielder Alyssa Roberts scored five goals and added nine assists for the Cowboys this season, and sophomore goalkeeper Adalyn Enslen had three shutouts and made 136 saves in 17 matches.

In Class 4A, Stansbury senior midfielder Chloee Corbett was named to the Second Team after scoring four goals this season, including the double-overtime game-winner against Uintah.

Tooele senior forward Makenna McCloy was an Honorable Mention recipient, as did Stansbury senior defenders Bethany Johansen and Rylie Klenk and sophomore goalkeeper Ainsley Thurber. McCloy was one of Class 4A’s top goal-scorers with 13 tallies on the season. Johansen and Klenk anchored a Stallions backline that yielded just 21 goals in 18 matches, as Thurber recorded eight shutouts to help Stansbury reach the Class 4A quarterfinals after a third-place finish in Region 10.
