SHP's Dahlkemper earns MVP honors in WBAL girls' soccer


Versatile junior Abby Dahlkemper led Sacred Heart Prep to a second straight title in the West Bay Athletic League (Foothill Division) this season and has been named the Most Valuable Player for a second straight year. Despite spending time away from the team while training, and competing, for the U.S. Under-17 National Team, Dahlkemper's presence meant everything to the Gators, who went 8-1-1 in league and 14-5-3 overall after losing to Scotts Valley in the CCS Division III semifinals.
