MILWAUKEE (WLUK) -- Emma Nagel was the target of every defense this season and rarely did the defense successfully defend the Bay Port junior.

In fact, Nagel helped lead Bay Port to its third straight Division 1 girls state soccer tournament, where this season it failed to defend its state title with a 1-0 loss to Divine Savior Holy Angels.

Nonetheless, Nagel's brilliance was not ignored as she was named the Gatorade girls soccer player of the year.

"It is important to me, but it's shared by all these girls," said Nagel, a junior. "They have pushed me to be the player I am today, they have pushed me to be as good and earn all these successes. They've made me want it so much. It's definitely a shared accomplishment."

"She had a phenomenal season," Bay Port coach Brooke Mraz said. "She scored 42 goals, had 15 assists; just a phenomenal player through and through. It's an exciting thing for her. It's exciting for Bay Port to have a Gatorade girls player of the year."

In addition to the Gatorade award, Nagel was named the player of the year by the Wisconsin Soccer Coaches Association. She was joined on the all-state first-team with teammate Alaina Abel, while Mac Johnson was a second-team selection.

Additionally, Kimberly junior Elsi Twombly was a first-team pick.
