CUMBERLAND — Northern’s Adria Graham and Kaitlynn Fratz and Frankfort’s Diane Dayton, a high-scoring trio who posted double-figure totals in goals and assists, head this year’s Cumberland Times-News All-Area girls soccer team, selected by the area’s head coaches.

Graham, who had 33 goals and 20 assists and broke the area’s single-season record with a 5.37 scoring average, was the Offensive Player of the Year and was featured in a previous edition of the Times-News, as were Player of the Year Danielle McGinnis and Defensive Player of the Year Quincy Hegeman, both of Mountain Ridge.

The All-Area team also features Stephanie Fazenbaker, Corrie Ferree and Miranda Nicol of Mountain Ridge, Justine Harvey of Northern, Crystal Moreland of Frankfort, Morgan Anderson and Claire Wilkinson of Southern, Catherine Czapski and Morgan Evans of Bishop Walsh, Amanda Meneghini of Fort Hill, Bailey Ellsworth of Allegany, Jordan Derryberry of Keyser and Ashlyn Haines of Hampshire.

Graham, Meneghini and Anderson are the only first-team repeaters from last year.

• Fratz, a high-scoring sophomore forward, led Northern to a 13-3 record and second place in the Appalachian Mountain Athletic Conference.

She finished third in the area in scoring with 22 goals and 11 assists in 16 games for 55 points and a 3.43 average. Her 11 assists were second best in the area, behind only the 20 by teammate Graham.

Also first-team All-AMAC, Fratz was third in the conference in scoring with 10 goals and three assists in seven games for a 3.28 mark.

• Dayton, a senior forward, led the Falcons in scoring despite often times being double-teamed or marked by the opposition’s top defender. She finished fourth in the area with 21 goals and 10 assists in 18 games for 52 points and a 2.88 average.

Dayton holds career scoring records at Frankfort with 48 goals and 17 assists, and was second-team Class AA All-State this year after leading the Falcons to their first state tournament.
