As White County High School soccer season comes to an end, six Warriorettes received District 6AAA honors at the conclusion of the season.
The coaches of 6AAA voted on players based on their regular season performance. Fred Demers, Sarah Webb, Kaydra Cash, Sarah Ward, Jerrica Swift and Autumn Ferree all were named to the postseason glitter squad.
Demers, who joined the Warriorette team this season while she is spending time at WCHS this year as an exchange student from Canada, was named the overall Most Valuable Player in the league. She shares the honors with Cookeville’s Kirsten Alcorn. She led WCHS in scoring this season netting 67 percent of the goals scored.
Coach Amber Lannom noted about Demers, “Fred scored 29 goals for the season and controlled the field offensively. She is a fierce competitor, but has an even bigger heart.”
Demers is the first Warriorette soccer player to be named MVP of the district in the 16-year history of the program.
Sarah Ward also received a superlative honor. Ward shared Midfield MVP honors with Warren County’s Morgan McCormick. She scored four goals this season for the Warriorettes.
“Sarah took all our corners and was consistently a vital play maker and catalyst,” added Lannom. “She helped turn the tables when going up against teams that were evenly matched to us to clinch a win.”
Two players, Kaydra Cash and Sarah Ward, were named to the All District First team.
“These two are a dynamic duo defensively,” continued Lannom. “They went up against very talented teams and shut them down.”
Autumn Ferree and Jerrica Swift were named to the second team. Ferree scored five goals this season and Swift manned the goal for the Warriorettes anchoring three shutouts along the way.
Lannom added, “Jerrica has been a force to be reckoned with for the past four years in goal and didn’t let up this season. Autumn is a player that you can always count on to be in the exact place every game. She was also an offensive catalyst with Sarah.”
Of the six WCHS players who received postseason honors, only two will return next season. Webb, Demers, Swift and Cash all finished up their Warriorette soccer careers last week in the District 6AAA tournament.
