Like their boy counterparts, the Riverside Pirate girls soccer team bulldozed through the Special District 2 play this season wrapping up the district title with a 5-0-1 record. A big reason for that success was of a ultra-talented group of upperclassmen, which showed in the numerous all-district selections that were released after the season.

The Pirates earned five first team selections, including seniors Skylar Wightman and Abby Hernandez, and juniors Faith Rosen, Alondra Caldera and Estrella Deltoso. The district champion have only two second team selections, with junior Brendy Avalos and sophomore Bianca Avalos.

Wightman, a four-year varsity player at forward, also earned district Player of the Year honors after piling up 11 goals and 14 assists for the Pirates this season.

Umatilla, the district runner up, had two first team selections in seniors Mayra Ortiz and Celeste Rodriguez and five second team selections. Irrigon, in its first season as a standalone girls team, had two first team selections with Olivia Luna and junior Ana Zacarias and two second team selections.
