Marshall Tigerette soccer players Abbey Redferrin and Lesley were named to the District 11- A/AA Regular Season first Team All-District squad.

Hudson and Redferrin were instrumental in leading Marshall County to a school record 10-0 start en route to a 13-4 regular season record.

Redferrin, a senior, led the Tigerettes in scoring and assists with 16 goals and 13 assists on 79 shots.

Redferrin led a potent Marshall County offense that outscored opponents 72-24 on the season with a respectable 57.4 percent of goals being assisted.

Hudson, a junior, was a gifted defender with a powerful leg who also provided four goals and two assists on 15 shots on goal.

The Tigerettes' defense pitched seven shutouts on the year while allowing just 24 goals by the opposition.

Eguia was also a large piece of Marshall County's vaunted defense and was dominant in the Tigerettes' 5-1 loss to Spring Hill in the district opener earning the only postseason honor. Eguia, also a senior, scored two goals on just four shot attempts
