The Region 5-7A boys and girls soccer All-Region teams were released this week, with numerous county players appearing on both teams.

South Forsyth goalkeeper Aarnav Sandhu was named boys Player of the Year, and Forsyth Central forward Callie Fagan was named co-girls Player of the Year, alongside Milton’s May Elshami.

Sandhu helped lead the War Eagles to the Class 7A state finals, where South lost to Lambert, and the senior was particularly impressive in the playoffs. He made three saves in penalty kick shootouts in the playoffs against Norcross and Hillgrove to help South win both of those games, and Sandhu also saved a penalty kick in the War Eagles’ state semifinal win against Peachtree Ridge.

Fagan, a junior forward, was a key piece in a powerful Central offense that led the region in goals scored and helped the Bulldogs finish second in the region, a year after missing out on the playoffs altogether. Central lost to eventual state champion Parkview in the second round of the state playoffs.
