The West Fargo girls hockey team may not have had the best season in recent history, but they still boasted several players with undeniable talent.

As emphasis, three of them have been named to the All-State Team, and four earned All-Conference honors.

Forward Hayley Walsh and goalie Andrea Klug were named First Team All State, while defenseman Tori Holland was named Second Team All State.

Walsh, Kelly Krahn, Holland and Klug also were named All-East Region.

Walsh, a junior, led the Packers in scoring with 34 goals and 51 total points, which was fifth most in the state.

Right behind Walsh was sophomore Krahn, whose 29 goals and 19 assists were eighth best in the state.

Klug, also a junior, started 21 games for West Fargo and finished with a 12-9-0 record. For goalies with more than 12 games in the crease, Klug ranked second in the state with a 92.1 saves percentage and averaged just 1.98 goals against per game.
