There are two dozen Alaskans playing soccer in the NWAC, but Malia Miller of Juneau, Abigail Uhart of Anchorage and Jacob Luhrs of Fairbanks proved to be top shelf.

The three stars were selected to the NWAC all-star team.

Miller is a freshman midfielder for Bellevue College and one of the prolific playmakers in the league.

She finished the regular season tied for second in the NWAC with nine assists.

Miller, of Juneau-Douglas High fame, has scored four goals and is tied for second on Bellevue with 17 points in 17 games.

At one point she registered at least one point in five straight games.

Uhart is a freshman defender for Yakima Valley College and one of the taller players in the league at 6-foot-1.

She utilizes her size, strength and skills to help protect the net.

Led by Uhart, Yakima Valley ranks sixth in the NWAC with a 1.02 goals-against average.

Uhart, of Service High fame, has chipped in offensively with 2-1-5 scoring totals in 12 games.

Luhrs is a sophomore defender at North Idaho College and the only member of his team to earn NWAC all-star honors.

He also split time as a midfielder.

He’s a big reason why North Idaho ranked sixth in the NWAC for fewest goals allowed at 1.19 per game.

Luhrs, of West Valley High fame, added one goal and one assist for three points in 17 games.
