TOPEKA — McPherson High graduate Hailey Ruder has been named to the All-MIAA honorable mention soccer team.

This was voted on by the league coaches and announced today. Ruder plays for Washburn University.

What made Ruder’s accomplishment even more outstanding was that she played only 11 matches before her season ended due to a knee injury.

Ruder was joined on the honorable mention team by Ichabod teammate Cadence Bourne. Both are just sophomores.

Ruder was chosen as a defender and Bourne as a midfielder.
