Parkview’s Nieva Gaither repeated as the Daily Post’s Girls Soccer Player of the Year after an impressive junior season.

Nieva Gaither, a 2020 Parkview grad, was named a United Soccer Coaches All-American for the third straight year when the awards were announced Thursday.

Gaither and Highland Park (Texas) star Presley Echols were the only honorees with three or more All-American awards in their careers. Echols picked up the acclaim for a fourth straight year.

Georgia put five girls on the 26-player team as Gaither was joined by Harrison’s Averi Visage, Lambert’s Madison Haugen and Sydney Hennessey and St. Pius’ Caroline Gray.

Only three Georgia boys earned All-American awards — Lassiter’s Vedad Kovac, McIntosh’s Luke Giordano and Westminster’s Weyimi Agbeyegbe.
