Three Blue Devils and two Raiders were named to the all-sectional team by the Illinois High School Soccer Coaches Association, to go along with each team picking up three additional honors.

QHS finished 12-6-2 and won the Western Big 6 Conference championship behind the leadership of senior midfielders Bri Lannerd and Rian Moore and senior goalkeeper Taylor Fohey, who were each named all-sectional.

Lannerd scored a team-leading 28 goals and was named the conference MVP. Moore piled up 10 goals and 23 assists, while Fohey posted six shutouts.

QND finished with a 14-13 record, won a Class 1A regional championship and played for a sectional title with a pair of juniors leading the charge. Junior forward Makayla Patton and junior midfielder Sage Stratton each were named all-sectional.

Patton led the Raiders with 33 goals and is tied for the 11th most goals in QND history with 73 career goals. Stratton, who is a two-time all-sectional selection, led the Raiders with 14 assists, scored six goals and anchored the defensive midfield.
