Leonhardt action head


Led by Clarion-Limestone South Division MVP Paul Leonhardt, seven area players were part of this week’s Upper Allegheny Valley Soccer League’s All-Conference announcement.

Leonhardt, a junior foreign exchange student from Germany, helped the Lions to another trip to the playoffs and a runner-up finish in the UAVSL’s Central Division with a 6-2 record.

Joining Leonhardt on the all-star team are two of his junior teammates Beau Verdill and Austin Coull. Division champion Karns City had a division-high four players named to the team.

Both Brookville teams had two players named to the Central Division teams. For the Raiders, it was the senior duo of goalkeeper Darius Sorbin and defender Bryce Kunselman. For the Lady Raiders, it was also a set of seniors with striker Madison McAninch and midfielder Emily Kramer.
