AURORA | Rosters are set for Wednesday’s Colorado High School Soccer Coaches Association All-State boys and girls games, which include a pair of Aurora players.
The CHSSCA All-State games are scheduled to be played back-to-back at Trailblazer Stadium in Lakewood, with the girls kicking off at 5 p.m. and the boys slated at 7 p.m.
Two Aurora boys players who faced each other during the fall season square off again, as graduated Grandview senior midfielder Jake Smith is on the North Team and Smoky Hill senior-to-be midfielder Kevin Del Mazo is part of the South Team roster. Both confirmed they will play in the game.
Del Mazo — who also was selected for the CHSSCA All-State Game last season and enjoyed his experience — paced Smoky Hill with 15 goals and shared the team lead in assists with 10, numbers that helped him win the Centennial League Player of the Year award in the fall.
Smith — who is signed to play at South Dakota School of Mines — scored six goals and registered five assists for the Wolves, who were 14-3-1.
Smoky Hill sophomore striker Sam Howshar had been selected to play in the girls game, but the co-Centennial League Player of the Year and 2014 Aurora Sentinel All-City Girls Soccer Team member is in Seattle for playoffs with her club team.
