ZIONSVILLE, Ind. -- Sixty players were nominated, but only 22 made the cut as the first- and second-team all-tournament selections at the Lady Eagle Invitational in Zionsville, Ind.

The all-tournament team was selected based on voting by participating coaches. Only three players were named on four coaches' ballots (meaning every coach in the group nominated that player) -- Katherine Soderstrom of Carmel (Ind.) and teammates Kristina Lynch and Brooke VanDyck of Penn (Mishawaka, Ind.). As the top vote-getter, Soderstrom was named MVP this year.
