Since the Strathmore High girls soccer team finished a perfect 10-0 in the East Sequoia League this past season, it figured the Spartans would land a large number of players on the all-ESL first team.
That was the case as six Spartan players earned all-league first team recognition. Two Spartans led the way as Samantha Oliveira was named as the league’s Offensive Player of the Year and Alexia Platas was named as co-Defensive Player of the Year. Platas shared the top defensive player honor with Lindsay’s Adrianna Gutierrez.
Also named to the first team for SHS were Victoria Rutherford, Rosalinda Platas, Ally Holloway and Caitlin Albison. Lindsay’s Catherine Morales and Granite Hills’ Sonia Torres were named to the first team as well.
Oliveira had a huge season for Strathmore with 29 goals and 10 assists. Rutherford, a top defensive player, was an oustanding all-around player for SHS with three goals and 15 assist. Rosalinda Platas had 14 goals and nine assists, Albison had 12 goals and five assists and Holloway had four goals and 10 assists on the season.
Strathmore coach Hector Gonzalez was named as the ESL Co-Coach of the Year along with Sierra Pacific’s Del Ray Dias. Also named to the all-ESL first team were Sierra Pacific’s Brianna Anaya, Raquel Castro and Marissa Stenschke, Woodlake’s Ruth Galvan and Venicia Villegas-Cardenas and Corcoran’s Jarrett Jimenez. Woodlake’s Clare Berry was named Goalkeeper of the Year.
