The Lady Panthers enjoyed all that comes with winning district, in the form of various All-District honors.

Leading the pack with 11-4A superlatives were Most Valuable Player Kensey Thomas, Defensive MVP BriAna Lacey, Newcomer of the Year Jaymee Dotson and Michele Estes was the Coach of the Year.

Making the first team were Reychal Grimaldo, Darista Herrera, Jessica Guerrero, Kaylee Dotson and Iris Carrillo.

Daisy Saldana, Melissa Bewley, Haley Lewis, Shelby Mitchell and Isabel Villa were on the second group.

Selected as honorable mentions were Jackie Salters, Maria Hernandez, Marissa Gaytan and Jouslyne Peinado.

Honored by the Texas Association of Soccer Coaches with Class 4A All-State awards were Lacey (first at defender), Herrera (second at goalkeeper), Thomas (second at forward) and (Jaymee) Dotson (honorable mention at midfielder).

After making it to the 4A title game, Thomas, (Jaymee) Dotson and Carrillo were named All-Tournament.

Princeton capped off a phenomenal season with a program record 22 wins, the 11-4A title (second in as many seasons) and six playoff wins.

“We wouldn’t have had the success we had if it wasn’t for the hard work of the girls, and the support from the administration, teachers and community,” head coach Michele Estes said earlier. “The future for Princeton girls soccer is very bright. We will be back here again and will be a contender yearly.”

Prior to this season they hadn’t made it past the first round.

This time around, the Lady Panthers claimed the bi-district (bye), area (5-4 over Community in a shoot out), quarterfinal (2-1 over Kaufman), regional semifinals (3-2 over Mabank in a shoot out at Tyler’s Rose Stadium), regional final (2-1 over Crandall at Rose Stadium) and state semifinal (4-3 over Jasper at Birkebach Field) championships.

They closed out the season with a 4-1 loss to Kennedale in the inaugural 4A title game at Georgetown’s Birkelbach Field.
