Winfield High’s Mary Lawman has been named the Gatorade West Virginia Girls Soccer Player of the Year, as announced Monday morning.
The 5-foot-10 senior midfielder and forward led the Generals to a 22-2 record and the Class AA-A state championship this past season. Lawman scored 34 goals and 19 assists as Winfield won its fifth consecutive state title, having won three straight in Class AAA before the Generals moved down to Class AA-A this season.
A four-time first team All-State selection, Lawman was named the 2016 AA-A Player of the Year by the West Virginia High School Soccer Coaches Association. She concluded her prep soccer career with 120 goals and 46 assists. A member of the Mu Alpha Theta math honor society, Lawman has volunteered locally at an animal shelter and as a youth soccer coach.
Lawman’s award is the fifth Gatorade state girls soccer player of the year award given to a Winfield student-athlete. Jordan Pauley won in 2015-16, Jayne Lawman won in both 2013-14 and 2014-15 and Haleigh Hoff won in 2011-12.
Lawman, the 2016 Gazette-Mail Kanawha Valley Girls Soccer Player of the Year, signed a letter of intent to play at Marshall University.
