Henninger, Long earn all-state honors

Sequim High goalkeeper Claire Henninger and Port Angeles High midfielder Emilia Long were named to the Washington All-State 2A Team for the fall 2017 season, as voted on by the Washington State Soccer Coaches Association.

Henninger, a senior, was named an honorable mention after leading the Wolves to a 9-7 mark, one league win shy of a district playoff berth. She earned her third consecutive all-league first team honor after posting six shutouts along with 56 saves and three saved penalty kicks.

Long, a freshman at PAHS, was named to the All-State second team. She notched peninsula-high totals in goals (17) and assists (15) as the Roughriders made a deep run through district play and on to the Class 2A state girls soccer quarterfinals. The Riders tied for the most wins in a season in school history with 13.
