Jackson's Schlick earns honor

Wednesday, June 18, 2008

Jackson junior forward Bobbi Jo Schlick capped a successful soccer season by being the lone local Class 2 player to be selected to the all-state first team.

Schlick helped the Indians reach the sectional round of the playoffs, where they lost to Hazelwood Central 1-0 on a goal in the final two minutes.

Jackson's Chelsea Dale, who has signed to play soccer this fall at Southeast Missouri State, was named to the Class 2 all-state second team, along with the Indians' Lauren Drewett, who has signed to play soccer at Quincy next year.

Jackson senior Jenni Tenholder, who has committed to play soccer at Southwest Baptist next year, was awarded third-team all-state honors.

Class 1

Notre Dame junior Mindy Siebert and Perryville senior Kendra Schilli were selected to the Class 1 all-state first team.

Schilli helped Perryville to its best season in school history. The Pirates advanced to the Class 1 quarterfinals for the first time before losing to Notre Dame St. Louis 5-1. Their postseason run included beating Notre Dame 1-0 in the Class 1 District 1 championship game.

Both Notre Dame's Alex Fowler and St. Vincent's Courtney Besand were selected to the Class 1 all-state third team.
