Section 8A Playoffs vs Hillcrest, 8-0
After pioneering the Bemidji High School girls soccer team to unprecedented success, Katie Alto is hoping to do the same for her new team at the collegiate level.
Alto signed her National Letter of Intent on Wednesday to play soccer at Concordia-St. Paul, first-time regular season champions within the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference this year.
The 5-foot-4 midfielder, recruited as a midfielder and defender to the Golden Bears, scored four goals as a senior for the Lumberjacks. Alto contributed to the team’s third straight Section 8A championship on October, and she’s netted a number of critical goals during Bemidji’s section runs.
Three former members of the Bemidji High School girls soccer team were named to the All-Upper Midwest Athletic Conference Teams on Tuesday.
Sophomore midfielder Annah Schussman of Wisconsin-Superior was named to the All-Conference First Team, junior midfielder Lydia Bitter of Martin Luther made the All-Conference Second Team, and freshman midfielder Harper Toward of Minnesota Morris earned an All-Conference Honorable Mention nod.
Bemidji High School girls soccer senior Emma Dean was named to the Class A All-Tournament Team on Thursday at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
Dean earned the honor for the second consecutive season, both times coming for her efforts against Mahtomedi in the Class A quarterfinals. While Dean didn’t score during the Zephyrs’ 4-1 victory last week, the forward’s play was still enough to warrant the all-tournament nod.
