The CHS girls’ soccer team not only had an outstanding season by making it to the state semifinals, but senior Juliana Comer was named the All-Met first team. Additionally, junior Frannie Phillips and senior Nicole Brodkowitz were names All-Met second team and honorable mention, respectively.

“We play in such a competitive division and region that recognition of any kind is a tremendous honor,” head coach Haroot Hakopian said.

Along with an outstanding first team All-Met honor, Comer was announced the Washington Post All-Met player of the year.

“Being girls’ soccer player of the year for the post was probably the most important because it was really cool to represent CHS among some of the best athletes in the area,” Comer said.

Furthermore, Comer was also named an NSCAA All-American which includes an invite to the All-American soccer team. This highly competitive team will help establish Comer’s credibility on the Cornell girls’ soccer team, where she has committed to play next year.

“It was an awesome experience and I wasn’t sure if I was going to even get the awards,” Comer said. “It was pretty surprising.”

According to Brodkowitz, she was honored to receive the All-Met honorable mention award because many great players have had the same recognition in the past.

Along with Comer and Brodkowitz, Phillips was honored to receive the All-Met second team award because of the hard work she has put the entire season.

“Each one of my teammate was right by my side through every battle this year,” Phillips said. “I couldn’t have done it without them.”

Not every good high school player receives the honor of being recognized by the Washington Post, so for three members of the girls’ soccer team to receive the honor is incredible.

“These players were not only exceptional players as recognized by our team, but coaches from other teams as well,” Hakopian said. “If they didn’t vote for them, they wouldn’t have received these awards which says even more about their tremendous play.”
