On Wednesday, we checked up on former girls’ soccer All-Met selections from Maryland and private school teams that play fall seasons. With college seasons winding down, we took a look at what just some of the 2013 spring first- and second-teamers achieved this fall. Others featured on rosters at schools like Wake Forest and Tennessee.

2013 Spring Player of the Year Murielle Tiernan: Virginia Tech

The former Stone Bridge standout started all 20 games for the No. 6 Hokies games as a freshman, finishing second on the team in points (20) and tied for first in goals (8). She led Virginia Tech in shots (57) and shots on goal (23), and will lead the Hokies against No. 1 Virginia in the ACC semifinals Friday night.

2013 First-Teamer Autumn Berry: East Carolina

Berry scored seven goals and tallied seven assists from the back line as a defender for Forest Park in her senior season, and featured in all 20 of East Carolina’s games as a freshman this year. She assisted on two goals and helped the Pirates to the Friday’s  Conference USA tournament semifinals against Colorado College.

2013 First-Teamer Clara Logsdon: William and Mary

Defender Logsdon played in 15 of 16 games for the Tribe, starting five and scoring a goal in her first season. As a senior at Centreville, Logsdon once scored six goals in a game, two-fifths of her team-leading 15 goals that year.

2013 First-Teamer Brittany Basinger: Penn State

The former Virginia Gatorade Player of the Year at Woodgrove started all 20 games on the back line for the Nittany Lions as a freshman. She recorded two assists and helped No. 20 Penn State to a berth in the Big Ten semifinals Friday against Iowa.

2013 First-Teamer Ashley Herndon: James Madison

The three-time All-Met pick at Stone Bridge started all of JMU’s 19 games this season and tied for the team lead with 17 points.

2013 Second-Teamer Kaylee Hohein: University of Kentucky

Former Westfield star played in 11 games for the Wildcats, who suffered a 2-1 loss to Ole Miss in their opening-round SEC tournament game Wednesday.

2013 Second-Teamer Alexa Wagoner: Iona College

Former Battlefield back Wagoner played in 18 games and started 14 for the Gaels, earning MAAC all-Rookie honors.

2013 Second-Teamer Allison Bunner: James Madison

Patriot midfielder played in 19 games and started six for James Madison, scoring a goal and dishing four assists for the Dukes.

2013 Second-Teamer Sarah Hardison: George Mason

Hardison earned All-Met honors as a forward at Woodgrove last spring, but featured on defense for the Patriots. The 6-footer played in all 18 of George Mason’s games, started 10, and recorded an assist, an effort that earned her Atlantic-10 All-Rookie team honors.

2013 Second-Teamer Vanessa Kovar: South Carolina

Kovar, a Forest Park standout, played in 16 games and earned an assist for No. 9 South Carolina, which plays No. 21 Texas A&M in the SEC semifinals Friday.
