Four Long Islanders are among 125 high school players selected by United Soccer Coaches as 2018 Fall High School All-Americans.

Among the boys selected is Henry Martinez of Amityville, a senior midfielder at Amityville High School. Also chosen was Andrew Weiner of Bellmore, a senior forward at Mepham High School.

Included on the girls’ team is Mia Asenjo of Valley Stream, a sophomore at Valley Stream South High School. She is joined by Jessica Garziano, of Dix Hills, a senior forward at Half Hollow Hills East High School. Asenjo is one of only four sophomores on either team to be named an All-American.

Weiner led a Mepham boys soccer team that won the Nassau Class A title and finished the season 15-2-1. He was the top scorer in Nassau with 22 goals and nine assists.

In Valley Stream, Asenjo and her teammates finished the season as the New York State Class A Champions with a record of 21-0-0. She was in the Top-5 in scoring in Nassau with 22 goals and 17 assists.

A recent commit to St. John’s University, Garziano led Hills East (13-2-3) to the Suffolk County Class AA Final where they fell to Smithtown West 1-0. She had 10 goals and six assists in her senior season.

The 68 boys and 57 girls will be recognized at the All-America Ceremony & Reception on Saturday, January 12, at McCormick Place West in Chicago. The event is held in conjunction with the 2019 United Soccer Coaches Convention.
