A coach once mentioned that if the team is successful, the individual honors will follow. The Lady Trojan soccer team had its best season ever last year and the individual accolades continue to honor the Beeville girls.

The Corpus Christi Caller-Times released the All-South Texas soccer teams on Sunday and the Lady Trojans earned several spots on the elite squads.

Trojan goal keeper Arturo Martinez also was selected to the All-South Texas third team for his fine play this season.

The Newcomer of the Year award went to Natalie Elder. Elder, a sophomore forward, scored 18 goals during the season and assisted on a good many more for coach Robert Partida and her teammates.

The elite All-South Texas first team included junior forward Carissa Elizalde, who scored 13 goals for the Lady Trojans. She combined speed and strength to cause a lot of problems for defenders all season long.

Senior defensive specialist Audrey Jones joined Elizalde as a first team selection. Jones played a big role in helping shut down the opponents’ offenses throughout the season and into the playoffs.

The All-South Texas second team had Beeville senior midfielder Calli Barber and sophomore goal keeper Morgan McKinney honored as teammates for their play this season. McKinney helped record several shutouts in district and postseason play.

The third team also included sophomore midfielder Mary Larakers, always a scoring and a passing threat along with helping out on defense.
