Five Lady Monarchs Earn All-State Soccer Honors
Goalkeeper Deonna Wellbrock was named a first-team all-state goalkeeper for the second time after a junior season where she helped TMP record eight shutouts. The Monarch goalie made 34 saves in the team’s 15 games this spring. She was also named a first-teamer as a freshman.
Joining Wellbrock on the first team was senior Bailey Hageman. Hageman closed her high school career with an 18-goal season, a new program record. She also set the Monarch career record with 42 goals in just three years on the soccer team. Hageman was a multiple-time all-state selection.
Senior center back Tyra Younie was a big part of the TMP defense that protected Wellbrock. She was a three-time captain and helped pitch 24 shutouts in her four years on the TMP back line. She scored a pair of goals in her final year before continuing her soccer career at Allen Community College this fall.
Midfielder Racheal Hamel, another one of this year’s captains, was a mainstay in the middle of the field for the Monarchs. She assisted two goals and scored three of her own, most of which came from outside the box. The four-year starter for the Monarchs will continue her playing career at Bethel College this fall.
Central midfielder Megan Koenigsman was the fifth member of the Monarchs to garner all-state accolades. She was one of TMP’s top scorers, tallying five goals and eight assists in her third year as a starter.
Koenigsman and Wellbrock will look to lead the Monarchs back to the state tournament next spring.
