This is the sixth year for All-Metro teams selected by The Eagle, recognizing the best high school athletes in team sports throughout Sedgwick, Butler and Harvey counties.
The selection process
In May, Eagle high school beat writers Joanna Chadwick and Chris Elliott sent nomination ballots to all girls soccer coaches at the 38 high schools in Sedgwick, Butler and Harvey counties.
Coaches were asked to return the ballots with nominations of the best players within those counties that they saw this season, including their own players.
The team was selected after tabulating nominations, evaluation of players and additional input from coaches and other media members.
Along with the All-Metro team, The Eagle will publish all-league teams for the counties' major leagues: the City League, Ark Valley-Chisholm Trail League, Central Plains League and Mid-Central Activities Association. The CPL and MCAA do not select all-league teams in girls soccer.
