Iowa high school all-state soccer 2021: Xavier boys and girls have multiple first-teamers

Cedar Rapids Xavier’s 2021 boys’ state soccer champions had talent throughout the lineup.

The Iowa High School Soccer Coaches Association all-state teams released last week offer more proof.

Xavier, which went 15-5 and beat Bondurant-Farrar 2-0 in the Class 2A final for its eighth state title, had a state-best three first-team honorees, all at different positions: goalkeeper Carson Jeffery, defender Trysten Vasquez and midfielder Ren Schroud.

Schroud, also the 2A all-tournament captain, led the team with 19 assists and was named all-state captain. The senior assisted on Xavier’s first goal of the state tournament in a 1-0 win over Marion and scored the Saints’ last goal of the week in the final.

“It feels amazing after all the hard work, all that we’ve been through as a team,” Schroud said after the state title game. “We had a three-game losing streak at some point in the season. For us to bounce back and continue winning, continue the motivation, it feels awesome to actually see it pay off and win the championship.”

Jeffery didn’t allow a goal throughout the Saints’ state-tournament run, making 12 saves in three wins. He had 58 saves during the season and gave up just 13 goals in 20 games. Vasquez, a center back, helped limit opposing teams’ chances. Both are juniors.

“It just shows where hard work goes,” Jeffery said of the state-tournament shutout streak. “It’s just impressive for our team because I can’t do it without our defense. We had a pretty solid defense. Without them, it wouldn’t have been zeroes this whole state tournament. I have to give it all to the defense. It shows that hard work can get you somewhere. This is the result of hard work.”

Iowa City West and Cedar Rapids Prairie had multiple first-team honorees in Class 3A.

Senior defender Andy Lu and senior forward Kolby Godbolt represented West, the state runner-up. Prairie, which was ranked No. 2 in 3A before bowing out in the state quarterfinals, put a pair of juniors on the first team, defender Kayden McMaster and midfielder Blake Halleran.

Three Gazette-area forwards were named to the Class 1A boys’ first team, including Division I football recruit Jahsiah Galvan, who scored 38 goals as a junior for state semifinalist West Liberty.

Alec Wick, a soon-to-be Division I football player himself as a University of Iowa walk-on, was named first-team all-state for the second time after scoring 31 goals for state semifinalist Iowa City Regina.

Junior Peyton Miller scored 40 goals for a West Branch team that climbed into the state rankings for the first time at the end of the season and earned first-team honors.

Solon senior midfielder Gabe Yetley, who led a substate-finalist team with 25 goals and 13 assists, also earned first-team honors.

Sam Brueck of Burlington Notre Dame/West Burlington was named Mr. Iowa Soccer 2021. The senior led the Class 1A state champion Nikes with 35 goals and 22 assists.

The IAHSSCA’s all-state girls’ teams had the most Gazette-area representation in Class 2A, including a Cedar Rapids Xavier defensive duo who gave eventual state champion Waverly-Shell Rock its toughest postseason test in a 1-0 quarterfinal that was decided in overtime.

Xavier senior Maggie Conrad, a Tennessee Tech commit, was the 2A all-state goalkeeper. She made 93 saves throughout the season and allowed only 13 goals in 19 games. Senior left back Amanda Ross was the only defender named to the 2A first team. She led the Saints with 19 assists and also scored nine goals.

The scorer of the golden goal that ended Xavier’s season, Kenzie Roling, was named Miss Iowa Soccer. The Iowa signee totaled 76 goals in 21 games, including three in a state-semifinal win and another four in WSR’s 5-1 win over Dallas Center-Grimes in the 2A final.

Among those joining Roling as 2A all-state forwards are Wamac Conference stars Maia Bentley (48 goals, 25 assists), a junior from Mount Vernon, and Clear Creek Amana senior Lauren Riggle (26 goals, 11 assists).
