The Herald Dream Team



The junior left winger collected 17 goals and 44 assists while helping the Spartans return to the Division 1 state final after winning the Catholic Central League crown. A two-time CCL All-Star and a two-time All-Scholastic, Butler’s leadership was as important as her on-ice production. As a freshman, Butler was part of St. Mary’s last state championship squad in 2010, and she enters her senior year with career numbers of 49-88-137.



Just a sophomore, Davis served early notice that goals against the Tanners would be hard to come by, pitching shutouts in each of Woburn’s first four games. She finished with a 1.21 goals-against average and eight shutouts, including one during the postseason, while giving up just 28 goals in 22 contests as Woburn won the Middlesex Large title. The Middlesex League All-Star has a career GAA of 0.98. Davis is a league all-star in soccer and softball.



One of the most dynamic talents in the state, Smith ranked among the game’s top scorers for the second straight season, racking up 34 goals and 26 assists while collecting the Middlesex League’s MVP. A Dream Teamer for the second time, the junior has career totals of 83-82-165 courtesy of her superior ability to create offensive chances for herself and for teammates. Smith hopes to play hockey in college.


Herald Dream Team



A two-time Catholic Conference All-Star, the co-MVP of the league scored 26 goals and added 39 assists as one of the key cogs in the Lancers’ run to a second straight Super Eight championship. More than just an offensive weapon, Collier is a true threat on special teams, regularly dominating on penalty kills as well as power-play situations. The Charlestown native is likely to play a year of junior hockey before attending Boston University.



Despite missing several games at the start of the season with a shoulder injury, the dynamic junior finished with a team-best 31 goals to go with 21 assists while centering the Lancers’ top line during two consecutive Super Eight title runs. The North Reading native was selected as a Catholic Conference All-Star for the second time. Fitzgerald is also a force on special teams and the junior is set to enter Boston College as part of the Class of 2017.



This talented senior shared Most Valuable Player honors for the Catholic Conference following a season that saw him tally 32 goals and 32 assists while helping the Eagles go 3-0 in Super Eight pool play and reach the semifinals. A Reading native, the right winger gained notoriety during the season when he was ranked 41st by the NHL’s Central Scouting Bureau. He has committed to play at Boston University.



The senior goaltender helped guide the Raiders to three Super Eight appearances in his four years. This year, the Raiders advanced to the semifinals of the Super Eight for the first time in school history as Williams recorded both wins. Williams also played a major role in Central Catholic winning the Merrimack Valley Conference title in each of his four years.
