Daily Journal Staff Report
The 2019 girls soccer season provided some of the area’s most successful teams of the area sports season.
Herscher led that success with a third-place finish in the IHSA Class 1A State Finals.
Mattie Brown leads a charge of six Tigers on the All-Area squad with Player of the Year honors. Mattie’s story can be found in Wednesday’s Daily Journal.
Herscher wasn’t the only team to find top-notch success this season.
Bradley-Bourbonnais won a Class 3A regional, and Peotone and Bishop McNamara were Class 1A regional champs.
McNamara had its best season in school history under first-year coach Marty Ruberry, and crosstown Kankakee also enjoyed a pleasant turnaround under their new coach, Vincent Mkhwanazi.
All of that success in the area brought together one of the most talent-rich All-Area teams in recent history, which can be found on pages C6 and C7.
