All-Pinellas County girls soccer team

Girls player of the year

F Gina Hayduke, Sr., Seminole

With several starters from the 2010-11 state semifinalist team graduated, Hayduke not only took on the bulk of the offensive load but also had to provide leadership. She did both, scoring 25 goals. Much like last season, she came on when her team needed her the most, scoring all three goals in a district semifinal win over Tarpon Springs. She did more than just score. She was an all-around dynamo teams had to account for throughout a game. About the only thing she was not able to do was lead the Warhawks back to the state final four. Hayduke tore the posterior collateral ligament in her knee and strained a calf muscle in the region semifinal. The injury prevented her from playing in the region final, which Seminole lost.

Most impressive accomplishment: In her career, Hayduke had 97 goals, including 61 her past two seasons. She was aiming to break the school record of 100 and might have had a chance had she not been injured.

Did you know? Hayduke was touted as a basketball player in middle school, so much that other coaches wanted to know where she was playing in high school and had an impressive performance at a camp as an eighth-grader. She would have played basketball in high school if the season had not coincided with soccer.

What's next: Hayduke has signed with USF and will play in the fall. Currently, she is playing club soccer and getting ready for the state cup.

First team

F Kaitlin Parker, Sr., Clearwater Central Catholic: Finished with 37 goals and 15 assists for state semifinalist.

M Paige Lombard, Sr., Palm Harbor University: Miami recruit provided toughness on defense and crisp passes.

M Alyssa Rosati, Sr., Countryside: Versatile player who could line up anywhere on the field but played mostly as midfielder.

D Renee Huy, Sr., Palm Harbor University: Came back from injuries to help Hurricanes stifle opponents in the postseason.

D Alyssa McHenry, Sr., Seminole: Spearheaded defense that was solid all season.

D Sydney Nelson, Sr., East Lake: Her quickness allowed her to stay with the top scorers.

D Katy Pelton, Sr., St. Petersburg: Tireless worker with incredible instincts in the back.

GK: Maggie Dalessio, Sr., St. Petersburg Catholic: Despite playing with many new starters, Dalessio still came through with the big stop.

    The Rays shuffled their bullpen again after Tuesday's game, sending down struggling LHP Jose Alvarado along with RHP Austin Pruitt to Triple-A Durham, and turning next to LHP Adam Kolarek, who will make his major-league debut at age 28,

  2. Rays journal: Alex Cobb brilliant, Alex Colome worrying in 10-inning victory (w/video)

    The Heater

    PITTSBURGH — RHP Alex Cobb couldn't have been much better for the Rays on Tuesday, taking a no-hitter into the seventh inning while working eight solid. And Alex Colome couldn't have been much worse, blowing a two-run ninth-inning lead.

    Rays starter Alex Cobb carries a no-hitter into the seventh and pitches eight shutout innings in his best outing of the season.

    RHP Alex Cobb continues to look better and better, which could make the decision whether to trade him tougher. Cobb had a no-hitter through six and threw his biggest pitch with a 1-0 lead in the seventh, getting Josh Bell to roll into a double play.

  4. For good of the Rays, Tim Beckham should embrace move to second

    The Heater

    PITTSBURGH — The acquisition of slick-fielding shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria said a lot of things, most notably that the Rays are serious about making in-season moves to bolster their chances to make the playoffs, with a reliever, or two, next on the shopping list.
