Mt. Vernon’s Mouhamed Konate and Bryson Basaran were named to the Indiana Soccer Coaches Association’s All-District 5 First Team.
Konate, a junior forward, finished in a three-way tie for the most votes on the All-District team with Center Grove’s Gabe Edel and Seymour’s Andrew Bailiff.
Edel scored the lone goal in Center Grove’s 1-0 regional championship win over Mt. Vernon Saturday. The Trojans are also represented on the All-District 5 Team by Creighton Smith, Jeff Humphrey and goalkeeper Dalton Mudd.
Other honorees include Columbus North’s Brad Shaw, Andre Abedian, Reid Wilson and Chase Francoeur, Columbus East’s Mitch Tabler, Nick Cataldi of Franklin, Roncalli’s Josh Brockman, Tovar Efrain of Southport, East Central’s Reid Wilson, Cody Sprague of Greensburg and Lawrenceburg’s Alex Panaro.
Players named to the All-District Team are eligible to play in college showcase games Nov. 17-18 at North Central.
Basaran, a Wright State commit, suffered a season-ending knee injury prior to the sectional and will be unable to attend the showcase games. In his place will be Mt. Vernon’s Rhyan Woods, a junior defender who was the first player left off the All-District First Team.
Woods was joined on the All-District 5 Second Team by Greenfield-Central seniors Angel Rodriguez (defender) and Trent Barnhart (forward).
Greenfield-Central’s Katie Peters and New Palestine’s Lauren Joray were named to the Indiana Soccer Coaches Association’s All-District 5 First Team.
By virtue of their All-District First Team selections, Peters and Joray, seniors who will each play for Indiana University next fall, are eligible to participate in the ISCA showcase games Nov. 17-18 at North Central.
Greenfield-Central’s Sammie McCoy, a junior, was named ISCA Second Team and she’ll also participate in the showcase. Per NCAA rules, only high school juniors and seniors are eligible for these type of all-star events, so McCoy will take the place of a sophomore who made the ISCA First Team.
The complete ISCA All-District 5 selection list was not available, but there were no Mt. Vernon players named to ISCA All-District 5 teams.
