Andrew Scanlon, Albemarle

He tallied a career-high 50 goals and 25 assists for a team-high 75 points. Defensively, he caused 27 turnovers and picked up 45 ground balls to garner VHSL Class 5 first team all-state honors.

Hanley Hauser, Monticello

Jake Wilson, Western Albemarle

Wilson was another talented playmaker in the middle of the Warriors' lineup. The junior had a great presence defensively, but could also contribute on the offensive end. He was an all-Region 4A first-team performer.

Defense

Jack Lesemann, Western Albemarle

Lesemann was a versatile two-way performer for the Warriors. The junior was the leader on the defense and was responsible for barking out coverages to his unit to earn Region 4A Player of the Year honors. Offensively, he wasn’t afraid to join the rush and led the Western Albemarle defenders in scoring. He was a VHSL Class 4 first team all-state performer.

Max Wooten, Albemarle

Wooten was one of the youngest players to start for Albemarle this spring, but he played like a grizzled veteran. He was the backbone of a much-improved Albemarle defense that help the Patriots reach the state quarterfinals. He was a VHSL Class 5 first team all-state performer.

Thomas Harry, St. Anne’s-Belfield

Harry played quarterback and linebacker for the Saints’ football team last fall. The senior played defense with the same passion this spring as he led St. Anne’s-Belfield in ground balls and turnovers. He was a VISAA Division I second team all-state performer.

Andrew Landman, Blue Ridge

Goalkeeper

Walt Stalfort, Western Albemarle
