Friday, August 19, 2022 | 5:02 p.m.

It is becoming a tradition, as the committee had hoped.

The Moe Rosenteel Player of the Year Award, given to the top female WPIAL soccer player since 2019, is now in its fourth year and a new winner will be crowned later in the fall.

The award embodies the best qualities of the late Katelyn “Moe” Rosensteel, a talented midfielder who played at Ringgold and was popular in the region’s cutting circles before her death in 2019.

The foundationled by her parents, Ed and Shelley, continued her legacy through the award and a scholarship in her name.

Past winners include Ellie Coffield of Mars (2019), Sarah Schupansky of North Allegheny (2020) and Kelsey Salopek of Steel Valley (2021).

A watch list of 31 players, compiled by a panel of foundation officials, coaches and members of the media, was released on Friday. Nominations will be limited to three finalists, then Player of the Year.
