Shawni – Girls 2001 Player of the Month is Alexia Perry (GK). She’s brand new to the team but has become a strong leader on and off the field not only with her words but with her actions. She’s been training hard in practice and with our GK trainer and it shows with her consistency in goal. HIGHLIGHT: she saved 2 penalty kicks in our Murrieta Surf Cup Championship win!
Girls Team Winners:
John – Girls 2008 – Mackenzie Smith: she is always focused at practice and eager to learn. We call her a gnat on our team because defensively she is all over the player. She is tenacious and very aggressive to win the ball back from the opposing players. She makes people nervous when they have to go up against her in practice. In our last tournament, she used her speed to beat the girl on the outside and deliver some great crosses for good scoring opportunities.
Jack – Girls 2007 – Maddie Ho is my player of the month
Coach Jen – G2007 – Madeline Gilbertson. Madeline is a leader on and off the field. She is our goal keeper and has a great sense of the game and vision of the field. She helps her teammates with their positioning/marking with her consistent communications. She is dedicated to improving and goes above and beyond with two extra days a week of practice, one practice for goalkeeping and one practice for skills training. Madeline also watches soccer and reads about it, which is very rare and why it’s worth mentioning. Keep it up Madeline all the hard work is paying off!
Coach Ali Girls 2006 – Maddison Goddeyne – For all her hard work and dedication to the team and the club
Kimberly – Girls 2006- Taylor Solo – She stepped up as a leader on and off the field. She was put into an unfamiliar position, goalie, and never once complained! She works so hard and is very determined to have an amazing season
Chris – Girls 2005 – Sara Malvin – Sara has taken on a new position of goal keeper this season. In striving to be the best she can be, she has been taking private lessons in addition to making goalie clinics.
