Chasteen named all-state
by Staff Reports
Watauga’s goalkeeper Jake Chasteen was named all-state by the North Carolina Soccer Coaches Association Monday.
Chasteen, a junior, allowed just .5 goals during the postseason. He was keeper during Watauga’s 18-4-3 season, which ended in the fourth round of the state 4-A playoffs.
The Pioneers lost 1-0 to T.C. Roberson in the Western Regional final at Jack Groce Stadium.
Chasteen turned in 10 shutouts during the season. His goal keeping also helped Watauga beat Hickory 3-1, which was one of just two losses Hickory suffered all season.
Chasteen was one of just three goalkeepers to earn the honor. He was also All-Northwestern Conference.
Chasteen is the 18th player from Watauga to be named all-state. Ben Robertson was the last one, which was in 2008. Chasteen also has a chance to repeat as an all-state selection. Goal keeper Adam Laney is the only two-time all-state player in the school’s history. Laney was selected in 1995 and 1996.
Hickory’s Carolos Sevilla, a midfielder, was also named all-state by the NCSA. Sevilla, the Northwestern Conference’s Player of the Year, was the only other Northwestern Conference player named all-state.
