It’s almost embarassing, really.

That is, the level of high school girls soccer talent in Dearborn County – which may have reached an all-time high in the recently-completed 2012 season.

Not only did the three county teams combine for an excellent 40-15-2 record. Two won sectional championships at their class division levels. One of those – Lawrenceburg’s Lady Tigers (17-3) repeated as conference champ en route to the No. 1 position in the final Class A state coaches’ poll.

That’s why it becomes a packed-house when it’s time to honor all those standout players.

Luckily, the cream of the top was easy to identify. Lawrenceburg senior stopper Jodi Offutt was the clear choice as Defensive Player of the Year, earning her second-straight conference MVP and all-district awards.

Tiger junior Haley Lowe, injury-free all fall, rated Offensive Player of the Year kudos with a hot 31-goal, six-assist season, picking up conference MVP and first-team all-district honors.

South Dearborn standout Felicia Horn, moving out to midfield for her senior campaign, came through with a team-high 13 goals to finish as the Lady Knights’ all-time leader, with 85 career goals. She shares Offensive Player of the Year honors.

Lawrenceburg’s deep, talented crew produced the 2012 Newcomer of the Year, as well, in talented freshman forward Peighton Cook (eight goals, four assists).
