Carson High boys and girls soccer put a number of players on the all-league teams released last week.
For the boys Class 5A North Sierra League, Josue Gomez was named the defender of the year.
It’s Gomez’s second year in a row on the all-league squad after being named a first-team all-league defender last season, as well.
Three more Senators were selected for first-team consideration. Johan Lizarraga got the honors in midfield; Angel Flores was a first-team all-league choice on defense; and goalkeeper Joshua Lopez was chosen as the first-team all-league goalie.
Carson had four more players earn second-team all-league honors.
Jaden Gomez and Kael Walt both picked up recognition for their play in the midfield, while Trigo Burciaga was picked as a second teamer at forward.
Walt returned to the list this season as a junior after being selected as an honorable mention last fall.
Diego Valdovinos was the fourth member of the Senators selected for second-team honors on defense.
Carson’s Steve Gomez rounded out the all-league award winners, picking up an honorable mention at forward.
