Soccer: Theesfeld, Blair named to All-State first team

For the second straight year, Los Alamos’ Amy Neal was named the Class 4A Player of the Year in girls soccer.
Neal, the No. 2 scorer in 4A this season, was honored by the New Mexico High School Coaches Association for her performance in the 2012 season.
Neal, who will attend the University of Tennessee next fall, earned 32 goals and 20 assists, both the second-best totals in 4A. She also led Los Alamos to the state semifinals before the Hilltoppers bowed out to Aztec.
Along with Neal, two other Hilltopper girls were picked for the All-State first team. Goalkeeper Bryce Theesfeld and fullback Stephanie Blair were both named to this year’s 4A first team.
State champion Albuquerque Academy led all teams with five first-team nods this season, including scoring champion MacKenzie Miller.
On the boys side, Los Alamos didn’t pick up any first team All-State selections. Fullbacks Brandon Hodges, Ben Stewart and Zayne Walterscheid, and midfielder Henry Steinkamp were named to the All-State second team for the Hilltoppers.
Farmington’s Jeremy Klepac was named 4A boys soccer Player of the Year and Chaparral head coach Fernando Mendoza, who led the Lobos to their first ever boys soccer title, was named Coach of the Year. Chaparral outlasted Los Alamos in overtime of their semifinal game Nov. 9.
