Megan Tole, forward, Archbishop Ryan, senior.

Tole is one of the area's most exciting players. She tallied 24 goals and eight assists en route to leading the Ragdolls to the Philadelphia Catholic League title. She is the first Ryan girls' soccer player to have her jersey retired.

Jen Hoy, forward, Germantown Academy, senior. Often double- and triple-teamed, the Princeton recruit still finished with 31 goals and 14 assists. Her efforts didn't go unnoticed. Hoy, who finished with 110 career goals, was named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America/Adidas East Regional all-American team and won her third consecutive Inter-Ac player of the year award.

NaTasha Prentice, forward, Penn Charter, junior. A member of the Trinidad and Tobago under-17 national team, Prentice is a proven scorer. The Auburn recruit scored 17 goals for the Quakers and was named to all-Inter-Ac League team for the fourth season. Prentice has been a varsity starter since the eighth grade.

Jen Gangl, midfielder, Radnor, senior. Despite missing eight games with an early-season calf injury, the West Chester recruit was named Central League co-MVP. Her eight goals and five assists led the Red Raiders to a second-place finish behind eventual Class AAA state champion Conestoga.

Murphee Greeley, midfielder, Conestoga, junior. Versatile, Greeley can dominate play at both the forward and midfielder positions. She finished with a team-leading 23 goals to go with seven assists to help the Pioneers win their second straight Class AAA state title.

Steph Myers, midfielder, Downingtown West, junior. The Ches-Mont League National Division MVP is regarded as one of the state's toughest players to defend. Like Greeley, Myers is dominant at the forward and midfielder positions. The Villanova recruit finished with 21 goals and seven assists and was named to the NSCAA/Adidas East Regional all-American team.

Tori Dugan, midfielder, Bayard Rustin, senior. A standout on the Golden Knights lacrosse team, Dugan used her elusiveness to become one of the area's most-explosive players. The Ches-Mont League American Division MVP finished with 18 goals this season.

Alysha Mallon, defender, Villa Joseph Marie, senior. One of the area's top defenders, the Dayton recruit routinely shut down the opponent's best scorer. The all-Athletic Association of Catholic Academies selection and four-year starter is also an offensive threat, finishing with nine goals and 13 assists.

Casey Steidle, defender, Conestoga, senior. The Tampa recruit anchored a Pioneers defense that surrendered only 16 goals this season. The NSCAA/Adidas East Regional all-American also scored the game-winning goal in both 2007 and 2008 Class AAA state championships. The Central League co-MVP and four-year starter finished this season with six goals and seven assists.

Madison Davenport, defender, Downingtown West, junior. Like last season, Davenport was usually in the attack mode when the ball was deep in the opponent's territory. As a result, the all-Ches-Mont League National Division selection finished with 10 assists and four goals.

Emily Cota, goalkeeper, Upper Perkiomen, senior. The Inquirer's player of the year was the heart and soul of the Pioneer Athletic Conference champion Indians. The Massachusetts recruit finished the season with 10 shutouts and a 0.79 goals-against average. The NSCAA/Adidas all-American finished her career with 38 shutouts and 613 saves.
