Girls’ soccer: 2015 All-Tribune Team

First Published      Last Updated Dec 08 2015 08:37 am

Zhu Parker

Logan | Defender | Junior

One of Parker's best moments of the season came in the Class 3A semifinals against Desert Hills when she scored on a header, a big momentum change in the match. "Zhu was great in the preseason and even better in the postseason," said Logan coach Sven Rasmussen. "As she developed into an attacking outside back, she helped give us balance and an extra body in the attack. … There were several moments in the final where she would be on the ground and still find a way to block a passing lane and get the ball."




Haylee Cacciacarne

Davis | Defender | Senior

The University of Utah commit was the leader of a defense that earned 14 shutouts and gave up only eight goals all season. "Haylee is a very gifted defender in the air and makes good decisions with the ball," said Davis coach Soulyvanh Phongsavath. "She is difficult to get behind because of her speed and great position. She goes in hard to every tackle and is truly a complete center back. She does a fantastic job organizing the defense and has improved her distribution tremendously."

Olivia Burnett

Timpanogos | Defender | Senior

Burnett, who has committed to play for Utah State in the fall, was a big reason Timpanogos made its run to the 4A title game. "She was the heart and soul of our back line," Timpanogos coach Megan Fereday said. "Her tenacity, consistency and leadership anchored our defense. … Her speed, counterattacking abilities and fantastic one-on-one skills helped us win games and led to our success this year. … She is a coachable player who is always willing and ready to learn, and is a great captain and teammate."

Olivia Wade

Davis | Defender | Sophomore

Wade played forward, midfield and defense this season, making her a valuable component on a national championship team with many star players. That said, she did much of her damage on offense. Wade helped lead the Darts to their second straight 5A title by scoring 32 goals in 16 games. "Olivia is a very complete player," said Davis coach Soulyvanh Phongsavath. "In addition to being incredibly athletic, she is also a very skilled soccer player. She is easily one of, if not the most, dynamic players I have ever had the pleasure of coaching."

Ireland Dunn

Davis | Forward/midfielder | Senior

Dunn was last year's Tribune MVP and a senior captain who has signed to play with the University of Utah next fall. She scored 17 goals this season, including a golden goal in the team's only overtime game of the year, against American Fork. She averaged 15 goals a season while at Davis. "She is one of the most gifted dribblers I have ever seen," said Darts coach Soulyvanh Phongsavath. "She is always a threat to score when she has the ball. Ireland also has a knack of scoring big goals in big games."

Anna Camp

Millard | Forward/midfielder | Senior

Camp finished the Eagles' state title run with 18 goals and 21 assists. "To her, being a senior meant leading by example, and not some feeling of entitlement," said Millard coach Dale Josse. "Immediately after school, Anna would go to cross-country practice running three-plus miles. After cross country, she would then run from the parking lot to the soccer field, gear in hand, and within seconds would be warming up with the team."
