It's no secret that Hayden Pascoe and Ashly Gagliardi were two cornerstones to Belle Vernon Area's girls' soccer program the last four years.
So, it shouldn't come as a surprise that the duo was named to the All-WPIAL Girls' Soccer Team.
The Lady Lep seniors were among 80 girls to be named to the team from all classifications.
Pascoe made the team for the third straight year while Gagliardi made it for the second consecutive year.
“I'm not surprised they made it,” BVA coach Paul Sasko said. “They are both very deserving, for sure. It's quite an accomplishment to make it once, let alone two or three times.
“I'm also optimistic that Hayden will make all-state, as well. But that list hasn't come out yet.”
Other area players to be named to the All-WPIAL Team include Elizabeth Forward's Rachel Collage and Josie Madden and Greensburg Central Catholic's Malea Fabean, who lives in Donora.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
