A championship-caliber team needs an enforcer — a strong personality and physical presence that keeps teammates in line and opponents in fear.
For the decorated Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer team, that role belongs to Tera Trujillo.
"She's probably as tough and as competitive a kid as we've ever had," Sacred Heart co-Coach Frank Pace says of the junior midfielder/defender. "She's got what we call a warrior mentality. She is a warrior. …She defines fun as measuring your best against the other team's best."
Over last year's historic run and the even more glorious campaign that the Tologs are a game away from bringing to completion, Trujillo has always been ready to role up her sleeves and set the tone when push came to shove in the team's biggest signature wins.
