The winner of the fourth Moe Rosensteel Player of the Year Award for the WPIAL’s top girls soccer player will be announced following the PIAA championships.

Three finalists were announced Wednesday.

They are Moon senior midfielder Hailey Longwell, North Allegheny senior forward Lucia Wells and Mars senior forward Piper Coffield.

All three players have helped their teams reach the WPIAL championship games this weekend at Highmark Stadium.

Longwell and Wells also were finalists last year.

Longwell is a Duquesne commit, Wells is headed to Pitt, and Coffield will play at Indiana.
