QUINCY -- Olivia Dreyer helped the Quincy Notre Dame girls soccer team fulfill its expectations.

She met some pretty lofty ones of her own.

The senior midfielder earned all-state honors from the Illinois High School Soccer Coaches Association after guiding the Raiders to back-to-back Class 1A state championships and was one of four QND players to earn postseason accolades.

Dreyer, who signed with McKendree, led the Raiders with 25 goals and 13 assists as they went 26-3-2 and won their fifth state championship. She was an all-sectional pick as a junior when she tallied 24 goals and 26 assists.

Earning all-sectional honors were sophomore midfielder Morgan Evans, sophomore defender Maddie Dickerman and junior goalkeeper Madison L. Meyer.

Evans, who began playing more at forward late in the season, finished with 19 goals and 17 assists. Dickerman anchored a defense that set a school record with 22 shutouts, while Meyer moved from forward to goalkeeper after an injury to Delaney Walker and posted 19 shutouts, which is tied for the second-most in school history.

Quincy High School senior forward Abbie Reis earned all-sectional honors, leading the Blue Devils with 13 goals. The John Wood Community College signee had two hat tricks after returning from an offseason injury.

QHS senior defender Keaghan Rodemich was named honorable mention all-sectional.
