Jenny Rowland were all on this year's team, but one notable local was
left off it.
Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy's Jessica Reyes, arguably the best
player in the area, was nowhere to be found on the three teams in
Division IV, despite scoring 32 goals. The reason for that is because the
Tologs did not advance to the CIF Southern Section playoffs.
Sacred Heart ended the season 12-7-3 overall but was 3-5-2 in the
Mission League for fourth place. The Mission League had the Division IV
champion in Chaminade High and the league champion was Harvard-Westlake,
which lost in the semifinals.
CV's Herrold was selected to Division I's first team. The senior, who
is headed to Brown University on a soccer scholarship, led the Falcons
with 24 goals and 20 assists. She started the season at center midfield,
but was moved to fullback after CV got off to a 0-3-1 start.
The Falcons advanced to the second round of the CIF playoffs, falling
to the eventual runner-up in Claremont High, 3-0. CV finished the season
at 16-6-3 and 8-1-1 in the Pacific League for second place.
Senior Rebecca Hidalgo made the second team for the Falcons. The
forward who was later moved to a defensive position scored 15 goals and
had 19 assists.
Flintridge Prep's Boswell and Rowland were both first teamers in
Division V. The Rebels finished 19-3 overall and 8-2 in the Prep League
for second place.
Flintridge Prep lost to Brentwood in a penalty shootout, 4-2 on Feb.
24 in a quarterfinal match. Boswell and Rowland were the biggest reasons
for Flintridge Prep making it that far.
The sophomore Boswell had 13 shutouts on the season and had 28 saves
in the Brentwood match. Rowland, a junior forward, led the area with 33
La Canada entered the Division IV playoffs with a 4-8-3 record, but
stepped up its play, advancing to the quarterfinals for the second year
in a row.
The Spartans (6-9-3) advanced to the playoffs by finishing third in
the Rio Hondo League at 3-4-1. La Canada's magical run finally came to an
end in the quarterfinals when it lost to Corona del Mar, 2-1.
Zaimes and Martin were big part of the Spartan defense, which had to
step up considering it lost top goalkeeper Lauren Arase to graduation.
Zaimes scored five goals and assisted on 12 others from her sweeper
Martin scored three goals and had six assists.
