Boys Soccer Places 12 on All-Region Teams, McSherry Named Offensive POY

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Senior Liam McSherry was named the West Valley Region Offensive Player of the Year and was among six Saints named to the 4A West Valley All-Region first team. Overall, NDP had 12 players recognized.

Joining McSherry on the All-Region first team were junior defenders Tyler Knutsen and Andrew Vines, senior forward Brad Semro and junior midfielders Cormac Galvin and Richard Kearney.

McSherry led the 4A Conference and West Valley Region in points (52) and goals (22) and tied for fifth in 4A with eight assists.

“It is a big award and he crushed it during the season and worked hard for it,” said Head Coach Mike Navarro of McSherry. “It is a good achievement.”

Semro was second in the 4A in assists with nine and led the West Valley Region. He was also among the top 20 in points in the 4A.

Knutsen and Andrew Vines helped the defense post seven shutouts and just 10 goals on the season. Vines was third in the region with five assists.

“Liam and Brad are very deserving,” said Navarro. “They have been in the program for four years and it is great to send them off on a good note.”

“Tyler and Andrew have been the backbone for our team,” said Head Coach Mike Navarro. “They are leaders from the back and taking charge communicating to the team.”

Cormac Gavin and Kearney rounded out the first team selections at the midfielder position. Cormac was fourth in the region in assists and tied for sixth in goals (5), while Kearney also tallied five goals and was eighth in assists with three.

“They created a lot of chances to give us the goals and keep the ball moving,” said Navarro of his all-region midfielders. “They really controlled the pace of the game.”

Junior goalie Brock Narveson was named to the region second team, while senior Neil Dessables, sophomores Quinn Gavin, Jay Kimerling and Noaj Zygmunt joined freshman Gabe Treadway with honorable mention recognition.

The Saints reached the AIA 4A quarterfinals and finished with an 11-3 overall record.
