Oneonta's Lindsey Doxtader, Edmeston's Kori Hamm and Downsville's Stephanie Shellman earned first-team girls soccer all-state honors from the New York State Sportswriters and Coaches Association on Monday.

A total of 10 area girls earned a spot on the team.

Doxtader, a junior who anchored Oneonta's defense, earned Class A first-team honors. She helped the Yellowjackets to a 14-3-1 season, which ended with a 2-0 loss to Owego in a Section Four Class A semifinal.

"She is so solid in the back," Oneonta coach Jerry Mackey said. "She's very talented, athletically. She has a great demeanor and she's calm. She's almost always in the right spot. She gives our defense the opportunity to take chances and be aggressive.

But despite having dynamic offensive numbers, Mackey said Doxtader means much more to the Yellowjackets.

"She's a quiet kid, but her leadership in regard to work ethic is unmatched," He said. "When you combine that with her talent, it makes a nice package. I'm proud of and very happy for her."

Shellman and Hamm were each named to the first team in Class D.

Hamm, a sophomore, helped Edmeston to its first Section Four championship as the Panthers beat Davenport, 2-0, in the final. Edmeston, which finished 19-3-1, fell to Lyme in four overtimes, 2-1, in a state quarterfinal.

Hamm finished the year with 26 goals and 17 assists. Teammate Amanda Dockstader, a senior, had 22 goals and six assists and earned a spot on the Class D third team.

Shellman ended her senior season with 45 goals and 10 assists, helping top-seeded Downsville to the sectional semifinals before a 4-2 loss to Davenport. The Eagles finished 18-01-1.

Davenport's top scored, Chelsea Haight, earned second-team Class D honors. The junior led the Wildcats to a 16-5-1 mark and had 39 goals and 11 assists.

Milford teammates Brenna Campbell and Maria Arnot made the second and third team in Class D, respectively.

Brenna Campbell, a senior who earned first-team honors last year, finished with 39 goals and 20 assists this year. The Wildcats finished 17-3 and reached the sectional semifinals before a 5-1 loss to Edmeston. Milford's only losses this season were to the Panthers.

Arnot scored 35 goals and 16 assists for Milford. Arnot earned second-team honors last season.

Cooperstown senior Anna Kieler made the third team in Class C. Kieler, a first-team selection last year, had 15 goals and five assists for the Redskins this season. Cooperstown, which finished 13-5-2, fell to Utica Notre Dame in a Section Three Class C semifinal.

Unadilla Valley senior Jessica Lorence and Sidney sophomore Danielle Gravel each earned fourth-team selections in Class C.

Lorence led the Storm in scoring this season and helped Unadilla Valley to the Section Four quarterfinals before a 1-0 loss to Union Springs. Unadilla Valley finished 12-6-1.

Gravel emerged as Sidney's top scorer this season, but the Warriors finished 10-5-4 after a 2-0 loss to Odessa-Montour in the sectional quarterfinals.
