“It is quite an honor that Maeve was selected . . . to the Division III second team all-state for the second year in a row,” said athletic director Mike Costello. “Maeve, her teammates and coaches worked hard to remain ranked in the state poll all season. This honor is a reflection of that work . . . Maeve has simply made a good name for herself in the state with the help of her teammates, coaches and administrators. She is very deserving and a special athlete. We all join in congratulating her for this accomplishment.”

Dale is the first repeat all-state athlete in WCDS history.
