Three Lady Tigers named to all-region team

COVINGTON -- The Alcovy girls soccer team had several firsts this season. The Tigers hosted their first playoff game and they had players nominated to the all-region team.

Making the Region 2-AAAAAA team for the Lady Tigers were midfielder Morgan Edelman, forward Alex Jordan and goalkeeper Marie Peck.

"This is the first time that we have had girls voted on to the all-region team," Alcovy head coach Phil Davidson said. "It is significant because it shows that other coaches from throughout the region recognize their talent and skill. There have been many times during the past couple of years that other coaches have approached me stating how good they felt some of our players were. It's nice that they finally got some formal recognition. All three are definitely deserving of the honor."

Edelman was a steady force for the Lady Tigers being a four-year starter. She was the team captain the past two years and earned most valuable player honors for the past two seasons as well. In her senior year, Edelman scored 10 goals and had 12 assists scoring on 41 percent of her shots she also accounted for 37 percent of the team's assists.

Peck, a senior, did not try out for the Lady Tigers soccer team until her sophomore year and was a three-year starter. She finished her senior season with 147 saves.

As a junior and a three-year starter, Jordan was Alcovy's leading scorer with 15 goals, 42 percent of the team's scoring. She also had eight assists.

Making up the rest of the girls all-region team are Druid Hills defender Grace Barrett, Druid Hills midfielder Haley Dabbs, Morrow defender Aliyah Frankling, Druid Hills midfielder Heather Mase, Druid Hills goalkeeper Jenna Miller, Luella forward Denisha Paskell, Morrow midfielder Angelica Rivera and Luella defender Maggie Sheffield.
