The first winner of the WyoPreps Athlete of the Year award for Girls’ Soccer, presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wyoming and Wyld Gear, goes to Jackson Hole High School’s Taya McClennen. She was one of the top scorers in Class 4A during the 2024 season and helped the Broncs to a runner-up finish at the 4A state championships last month.

Despite some limitations from injuries, McClennen finished with 15 goals and 16 assists for 46 points in the 2024 season. She helped Jackson to a 16-2-2 overall record and earned her fourth all-state award from the coaches. In the 2024 season, McClennen scored 60 percent of her goals against opponents with a .500 or better overall record or qualified for the 4A state soccer tournament. She also had over 56 percent of her assists in those same contests. Both percentages were among the highest in the state versus top-level competition.
