Auburn Riverside and Fife were well represented on the Washington State Soccer Coaches Association all-state boys soccer teams after both reached the final four of their respective classifications’ state tournaments.
Fife senior Efren Monzon was selected as a first-team forward. He was actually a defender to start the season before a foot injury to last year’s 2A state MVP, Mack Smith, led to a position change. He helped lead the Trojans to the 2A state title match, where they lost Archbishop Murphy, 3-0, in May.
The News Tribune’s All-Area boys soccer player of the year, Tahoma’s Logan Wood, was named a first-team forward in 4A.
The teams were picked in a vote by WSSCA members.
Never miss a local story.
Smith missed 11 games with a sprained foot but was still selected second-team all-state with 13 goals in eight matches. Teammates Bryan Flores and Ray Sigala were selected as second-team defenders, Julian Tafoya the second-team goalkeeper and Axel Mejia an honorable mention midfielder.
Auburn Riverside had a pair of midfielders — senior Adrian Correa and junior Brandon Gonzalez — on the 3A first-team after the Ravens finished fourth in the 3A state tournament in May. Jordan Loomans joined them as an honorable mention forward.
Connor Thompson represented the 3A Narrows champion Bellarmine Prep as a 4A first-team defender.
Snohomish’s Blake Crutchfield earned 4A MVP, Interlake’s Jason Rodriguez was the 3A MVP, Archbishop Murphy’s Brady Henderson was the 2A MVP and Highland’s David Paniagua was the 1A MVP.
