The Washington State Soccer Coaches Association named its all-state girls soccer teams from the fall season, and several Mid-Columbia players earned recognition.
Three seniors from the CBBN 3A -- Southridge forward Heather Johnson, Hanford midfielder Cari Exarhos and Kamiakin defender Macy Brannan -- all were named first-team all-state.
At the 4A level, Richland sophomore midfielder Katherine Virden earned a second-team nod. Three players from the CBBN 3A were named to the second team: sophomore forward Ellie Heiden and junior goalkeeper Sydnee Grant from Kamiakin, and Southridge junior defender Emma Sanders.
Helen Petersen, a senior forward from Prosser, was named to the second-team 2A squad.
