FORWARDS

Jansen Eichenlaub, Marian (Bloomfield Hills, Mich.), Sr.

Eichenlaub scored 23 goals as a senior as Marian went 18-1. Over the past three seasons, Marian has gone 65-1-1, and the only loss was a match that was played indoors due to poor weather. She ended her high school career with 101 career goals.

Samantha Meredith, Wando (Mount Pleasant, S.C.), Sr.

The South Carolina signee was part of a stellar senior class in the Palmetto State this season. Meredith scored 40 goals while leading Wando to a 23-1-1 season and a Class 5A state runner-up finish.

Lucy Mitchell, Wesleyan School (Peachtree Corners, Ga.), Jr.

The Notre Dame commit capped her junior season with two goals in a state final victory over Pinecrest Academy. Mitchell, one of the nation's top 2020 prospects, ended the season with 22 goals and 13 assists. She has won two titles in three seasons.  

Kalyssa Van Zanten, Stevenson (Lincolnshire, Ill.), Sr.

The Notre Dame signee with U.S. Under-17 National Team experience made her high school soccer debut in 2019 and was in the running for state player of the year.

She was the Lake County News-Sun Player of the Year after leading Stevenson to a 22-2-2 season.

MIDFIELDERS

The Clemson signee is the TopDrawerSoccer Spring Player of the Year. Conti led J.L. Mann to a 27-1 season, a class 5A state title and a Spring FAB 50 No. 3 finish. It is the highest-ever final ranking for a South Carolina program. Conti scored 32 goals and added 44 assists.

Lacey McCormack, Yorktown (Arlington, Va.), Sr.

The Virginia signee scored both goals in the state final to lift Yorktown to a 2-0 victory over Northern Virginia rival T.C. Williams in a clash of undefeated teams. The win gave Yorktown a 24-0-1 record, the program's second state title in three years and a No. 2 Spring FAB 50 finish. With McCormack playing a key role, Yorktown has gone 58-5-4 over the past three seasons.

Emma Weaver, New Trier (Winnetka, Ill.), Jr.

DEFENDERS

Ashton Gordon, Booker T. Washington (Tulsa, Okla.), Sr.

The Arkansas signee was the Tulsa World Player of the Year. A three-time Tulsa World first-team selection, Gordon was a defender with the ability to take over the attack. Gordon finished the season with 14 goals and 14 assists. She is a repeat TopDrawerSoccer All-America selection. She was part of the Class of 2020, but accelerated her studies to graduate a year early.

Natalia Staude, Westminster Schools (Atlanta, Ga.), Sr.

GOALKEEPER

Ruthie Jones, Charlotte Latin (Charlotte, N.C.), Sr.
