Girls soccer players to watch in the fall 2014 season

Bridgette Andrzejewski

McDonogh, forward, junior

Coming off a 29-goal, 10-assist sophomore season that earned her All-America honors, Andrzejewski will draw even more attention from opposing defenses after the No. 1 Eagles graduated key components from last year's offense. Highly skilled and fiercely competitive, the two-time All-Metro first-team selection has 44 goals and 18 assists in her first two varsity seasons.

Sarah Ensor

Archbishop Spalding, forward, senior

Ensor, who scored a team-high 13 goals and added eight assists last season, doesn't need much time or space to provide offense for the Cavaliers. Ensor uses her speed on timely runs to get behind defenses, and she has a knack for finishing or setting up teammates. As a team captain, she also provides positive energy that is just as valuable to the Cavaliers.

Alex Hamer

River Hill, forward, senior

In her first three varsity seasons, the All-Metro second-team selection showed versatile offensive skills with an ability to score and distribute for the defending Class 3A state champion Hawks. The graduation of fellow standout forward Sheridan Street leaves Hamer (24 goals, 36 assists in career) as the new focal point and leader up front.

Anna Mitchell

Centennial, forward, senior

Mitchell was Howard County's biggest surprise and leading scorer last season, finishing with 11 goals and 18 assists to lead the Eagles to a 13-3-2 campaign. Her hard work and smarts with the ball led to plenty of scoring chances. After the breakthrough season, Mitchell will have to work around heavier marking, with opposing defenses focused on shutting her down.

Jennifer Nonn

Catonsville, forward, senior

Relying on speed, instincts and a poised finishing touch, Nonn posted 21 goals and 10 assists to lead the Comets to their first state title appearance in Class 4A. The All-Metro first-team selection, a four-year starter, takes 67 goals and 20 assists into a senior season that she's determined to make sure ends with a victory.

Andrea Sipos

Bel Air, goalkeeper, junior

Across-the-board steady, Sipos takes charge of her penalty area with athleticism, sound fundamentals and heads-up play as the anchor of Bel Air's stingy defense. In helping the Bobcats reach the Class 3A state semifinals last season, she posted 15 shutouts, turned away 96 percent of shots and had a 0.31 goals-against average.

Hailey Small

Broadneck, defender, sophomore

Small impressively displayed all the ways she can influence a game with a fine freshman season. Her skills, athleticism and instincts make it tough for opponents to get past her, and her accurate free kicks lead to offensive production for the Bruins. She contributed two goals and six assists.

Jenna Surdick

Arundel, defender, senior

The All-Metro first-team selection has displayed all the intangibles needed to play sweeper at a high level: fine speed, foot skills, instincts and organization. Last season, her disruptive ways sparked a defense that limited opponents to six goals all season and helped the Wildcats to 14 wins and the Anne Arundel County championship.

Hannah Warther

Century, forward, junior

Proving to be a clutch performer in the Knights' run to the Class 2A state crown last season, Warther scored the opening goal in the team's 2-1 win over Middletown in the regional title game and added two in the state championship against Loch Raven. Tall, quick and smart with her runs, she uses her strengths and adds accurate placement to provide offense.

Jasmine Wright

Severn, midfielder, senior

Technically clean and smart with the ball, Wright will be the focal point of the Admirals' attack this season. In addition to her crafty skills, she is quick and has the ability to distribute to teammates or find her own heavy shot. Wright, who has committed to Virginia, where she's projected to play defense, is a versatile player who can be an asset anywhere on the field.
