Tolle named MVP, entire team gets girls soccer Coach’s Award

Kristin Tolle was named Most Valuable Player for the girls soccer team Wednesday, Nov. 18 at an awards pizza feed.

Tolle, a sophomore, played multiple positions €“ particularly goalkeeper €“ for the Huskies, who made history by qualifying for

the state playoffs for the first time and finishing second in what Coach Ramiro Santana called “one of the top leagues in the state because of some of the teams we played with.”

“It was a great season for us this year,” Santana told the audience of players and their families. “To tell you the truth, I didn’t expect to do this good. I didn’t expect second place.”

He said he got many e-mails from other coaches in the league who were amazed at how the Huskies improved, finishing 7-5-2 after winning their first game in years at the end of last season.

Santana said he had so much difficulty deciding who his “favorite” player was for the Coaches’ Award, that he solved the problem by presenting it to the entire team.

Rookie of the Year was Sabrina Davis, a freshman who “looked like a senior even though it was her first year in high school,” the coach said.

Best Defender was senior Rochelle Zamacona, who was the backbone of the defense this year.

Best Midfielder came down to “two or three girls €“ it was so close,” he said, before the award went to sophomore Jasmin Yoder.

Best Forward was senior Jessica Snow, who led the team in scoring.

Most Improved was Katie Nicholson, who joined the team after playing volleyball for _____ years.

The Hustle Award went to Megan Rubidoux, who, Santana predicted, could turn out to be a “great” soccer player.

First-year letter winners were Tasha Sanders, Katie Nicholson, Sabrina Davis and Alana Long.

Second-year letters went to Jessika Stewart, Christina Ulmer, Hannah Currey, Jasmin Yoder, Rylee Links, Megan Rubidoux and Kristin Tolle.

Third-year letter winners were Kaitlin Keenon, Jazmine Morris, Shelby Gillespie and Sarah Nelson.

Fourth-year letters went to Ruth Hernandez, Kelsi Walker, Alex Hawk, Brianna Wirth, Rochelle Zamacona and Jessica Snow


Santana, for whom this season was his second with the Huskies, said he isn’t absolutely sure whether he will coach the team again next year, but he said this year was special.

One more year with this group of girls €“ I don’t know what would happen,” he said.
