Lady Cyclones place four on All-Conference squad

Published 1:12 am Saturday, November 2, 2019

The Lady Cyclone soccer team had high hopes heading into the 2019 season but untimely injuries and an upset by Sullivan Central in the first round of the district tournament brought an end to Elizabethton’s season.
However, during selections for the District 1-AA All-Conference team, the Lady Cyclone placed two of their seniors on the first-team unit and a senior and freshman on the second-team squad.
Pegged for first-team honors were Kaylen Shell and Lexi Brown. Both players had stellar careers with the Lady Cyclones as Shell is ranked in the top five in scoring for her career.
Senior Maggie Johnson and freshman goalkeeper Morgan Heaton were named to the second team for their outstanding play in 2019.
With little doubt, the Greeneville Lady Greene Devils dominated both the first and second teams with 10 Lady Greene Devils being named. Greeneville’s Delana Debusk was named the Offensive Player of the Year while teammate Kenly Wilhoit was selected as the Defensive Player of the year.
A list of the teams are as follows:
