CLARKSBURG — Wheeling Park defeated Parkersburg South, 1-0, in a clash of titans in the Class AAA girls soccer state championship game.

For Parkersburg South, which finished with a 19-1 mark, midfielder Samara Nunn (23 goals and nine assists), defender Riley Shockey (one goal) and goalkeeper Kendal Mader are first-teamers, while midfielder Ellie Foggin (three goals, seven assists) captains the second team.

Bridgeport, which was knocked off by Wheeling Park in the regional final for its only loss of the season, placed forward Braelynne Sandreth (21 goals, six assists) and midfielder Allison Bender (five goals, six assists) on the first team.

Joining Sandreth and Delk on the first-team front line are Cabell Midland's Olivia Charles (24 goals, nine assists) and John Marshall's Zara Zervos (32 goals).

Greenbrier East's Emma Dotson (13 goals, seven assists) is also in the midfield.

Hurricane's Abby Fowler and George Washington's Reagan Bromiley round out the first-team defense, while George Washington's Mary Lyle Smith is a first-team goalkeeper.
