Voumard, a midfielder, came on strong as the season progressed. He tallied 22 goals and seven assists for the year, and had a four-game stretch in midseason where he posted nine goals, all against conference foes.
Seniors Ethan Farrell (Nantucket, MA/Nantucket) and Shane Roscher (Centreville, VA/Westfield) were selected on the first-team. Farrell, an All-American midfielder, finished second this season on the squad in goals (31), assists (17) and points (48). He is also second on the squad with 57 ground balls and has scored nine times in man-up situations. Roscher, a defender started all 18 games and led the team with 20 caused turnovers and also scooped 17 ground balls. The Hornet defense has allowed just 144 goals in 18 contests, 8.0 per outing.
Dylan Hoff (Chester Springs, PA/Downington East), Eddie Bilinkas (Randolph, NJ/Randolph), Ryan Butler (Belle Mead, NJ/Montgomery) and Voumard all earned spots on the All-State second-team. Hoff, a sophomore attack, led the team with 40 goals and 26 assists for 66 points, ranking in the top seven in the conference in all three categories.
