Fried named Prep Soccer Player of the year
BEAVERTON — She was already a champion.
And, now, she has been honored again.
Sherwood High School senior Kaillen Fried was among the winners at the 65th Oregon Sports Awards ceremony, presented by Nike. The event was held June 18 at the Stanford Theater in the Tiger Woods Center on the Nike World Headquarters.
Fried was honored as the Female Prep Soccer Player of the Year for the 2016-2017 school year.
The honor was one of many for Fried, who was previously named the Three Rivers League Player of the Year, the Class 6A Player of the Year and the Gatorade Player of the Year for the state of Oregon.
Last fall, Fried helped lead the Lady Bowmen to the Class 6A state championship, marking the first-ever Class 6A team championship for a Sherwood squad. Sherwood went 16-2-1 on the season, which was capped off by a 2-1 victory over Sunset in the 2016 Class 6A state championship match.
Fried finished her high school career at Sherwood with a total of 40 goals scored and 22 assists. Two of her goals came in a 3-2 state playoff semifinal win over West Linn.
Fried, who graduated from Sherwood High School earlier this month, will be playing college soccer at Oregon State University.
Fried's Sherwood teammate, senior Lindsay Howard, was also a finalist for the Female Prep Soccer Player of the Year honor. Camille Weaver of Summit was the third finalist.
Howard was a scoring machine for the Lady Bowmen all season, especially in the postseason. She scored two goals in a first-round state playoff win over McNary. She tallied three goals in a quarterfinal win over Oregon City and she had both a goal and an assist in the title-game victory over Sunset.
