PREP BOYS SOCCER | ALL-STATE

Baraboo brothers among All-State soccer selections by Wisconsin coaches

Baraboo's Johan Lopez

Baraboo senior Johan Lopez looks to shoot on goal during a Badger West Conference game against Sauk Prairie on Sept. 20 at Flambeau Field in Baraboo.

The Thunderbirds senior discusses how he got his start in the sport, what club he roots for and more in just five questions.

A rivalry among siblings fueled Baraboo soccer’s ascent — and the Lopez brothers have been recognized for it.

Johan Lopez was named to the Wisconsin Soccer Coaches Association All-State first team on Friday. Ronaldo Lopez was an honorable mention selection as the seniors closed out their careers leading Baraboo to a 16-3-1 finish and regional final appearance.

Verona junior forward Connor Gage helped lead Verona to the WIAA Division 1 boys soccer championship.

Gage, who’s verbally committed to the University of Wisconsin, was named a first-team selection and the state’s player of the year.

Verona defeated Milwaukee Marquette 2-1 in the Division 1 final Nov. 5 at Uihlein Soccer Park in Milwaukee. Gage scored Verona’s second goal of the match — his 33rd of the season — off a free kick just outside the 18-yard box at the 57-minute, 6-second mark.

Players on the All-State “First 11” announced by the WSCA included Gage, Oregon seniors Mason Diercks and Noah Malcook, and Johan Lopez.

Oregon repeated as state champion with a victory in a shootout over Whitefish Bay in the Division 2 state championship Nov. 5. The game was tied 1-1 after regulation and, following two scoreless overtime periods, Oregon won 8-7 on penalty kicks.

The All-State second team included Oregon senior Anthony Elert and Verona senior Alex Klimm.

Honorable mention selections included McFarland senior Bubba Blair, Middleton senior Dom Campos, Monona Grove senior Nathan Haberli, Madison West senior Finn Kennedy, Middleton senior Daniel Kim, Monona Grove senior Milo Kohl, Oregon senior Casey Schoenecker, Sun Prairie West senior Riley Stevens, Mount Horeb senior Nate Thompson, Verona senior E.J. Van de Grift and Verona senior Brian Vazquez Trejo.
