This year's all-area was especially difficult to compile given how many qualified players were on the outside looking in. Even more so than usual, there were far more distinguished players than available slots. As a result, some very good players were passed over; it was, in no way, a reflection of their play, just a crucial matter of math.

As a refresher, this was the all-area list for 2013:

First team

Abbie Boswell, So., Forward, Naperville North
Jasmin Carrera, Sr., Forward, Lane

Second team

Hope D'Addario, Sr., Forward, Neuqua Valley
