First team

Forward: Austin Sawyer, Pine Creek

His 43 points — 25 goals, 18 assists — were fifth in the state and topped the area. He also scored three of the Eagles’ four short-handed goals and had two hat tricks on the year. “Best player on (the) best team,” is how an opposing coach described Sawyer.

Forward: Ethan Meyer, Rampart

Meyer led Rampart in scoring with 18 goals and 22 assists. He produced in all situations for the Rams with eight power-play points (5 goals, 3 assists) and two short-handed goals.

Forward: Will Stone, Palmer

Stone made his mark all over the score sheet, chipping in 21 goals and 12 assists for the Terrors with 10 power-play points, three short-handed goals and a team-high 36 penalty minutes.

Defense: Austin Gipson, Pine Creek

A lot was expected of the senior captain and he delivered, to the tune of 25 goals, 17 assists with a team-high three power-play goals. He was also a trusted shot-blocker.

Defense: Josh Mongeau, Rampart

Mongeau averaged nearly an assist per game for the Rams. He also scored the game-winner Feb. 1 at Air Academy.

Goaltender: Stratton Miller, Pine Creek

Miller finished with a sterling 1.65 goals-against average and .910 save percentage plus three shutouts.

Second team

Forward: Chase Chapman, Doherty

The Spartan dished it out almost as much he scored, finishing with 18 goals and 16 assists, and even more so on the power play, where he had five helpers.

Forward: Sam Kleinsmith, Lewis-Palmer

The alternate captain paced the Rangers with 13 goals and 12 assists. He scored a team-high five power-play goals.

Forward: Wyatt Furda, Cheyenne Mountain

Furda led his team with 13 goals and nine assists with a hat trick Jan. 24 against Rampart. He liked to kick off the Cheyenne Mountain scoring, getting the first goal three times.

Defense: Luke Doyle, Pine Creek

Doyle was clutch for the Eagles as four of his 10 goals (7 assists) were game-winners. That mark led the team.

Defense: Tanner Chapman, Doherty

Chapman steadied the Spartans’ blue line and contributed seven goals, 14 assists, four power-play points and 14 penalty minutes.

Goaltender: Sean Bolduc, Palmer

The Terror saw more rubber than anyone else in the area, facing 870 shots and saving 772 of them (.887 save percentage), earning a “stud” distinction from an opposing coach. He appeared in all 19 games for Palmer.
