Wyoming Area sophomore Brianna Pizzano was recognized for the second straight year.

Pizzano, the Player of the Year last season as a freshman, was a first-team choice after repeating her District 2 Class 2A singles title.

The Penn State recruit scored 10 goals and assisted five more in the seven-game playoff run that lifted the Blue Knights to the District 2 Class A title and an appearance in the state championship game. She was also among the WVC’s top 10 goal scorers.


Pittston Area senior Allie Craig was named to the team.

Craig won the Class 3A girls portion of the WVC qualifier for the District 2 tournament, then advanced through district and East Regional play to finish her career at the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association Championships.
