Like Dallas Cowboy Hall-of-Famer Emmitt Smith, Lake Highlands’ soccer standout Emmet Kumeh is known to many by just his first name. Now he’s known in even wider circles. Emmet has been named to the All Area Team as a star defender.

Emmet was recently chosen District 9-5A’s MVP, and he was Defensive Player of the Year in 2010. He scored 15 goals in 14 games just this season (yes, I did say he plays defense). Emmet will play for SMU next fall.

Named to the men’s All District Team were Reagan Dunk, Joel Mendoza, Alexis Cedillo and Mason Miller.

On the girls’ side, Maggie Olvera was District MVP and Brinkley Field was Offensive Player of the Year. Also earning spots on the women’s All District Team were Annie Ritter, Jennifer Kunz, Avery Voigt, Lena Anderson and Caroline Adams. Congrats, all.
