The fans’ pick
Avery Smith, So., Cypress Creek
As a freshman last year, Avery Smith had quite a debut, scoring 50 goals in an abbreviated 10-game season.
The scoring continued this year, so much that Smith compiled 150 points in her high school career before her sophomore season ended.
Entering last week, Smith ranked second in the area in goals (71) and points (90) to help the Coyotes earn the No. 1 seed in the Class 1A, District 5 tournament. She added to her total by scoring 11 more goals in three games to lead Cypress Creek to a district title.
Fans took notice. Smith received more than 60 percent of the votes (3,141) to beat out Steinbrenner’s Taylor Lapointe (1,311 votes).
The PTP pick
Chloe Norman, Jr., Land O’ Lakes: Led the area in goals with 88 entering the week and finished the season with 100.
