Alyssa Selve makes early impact for Adams

September 26, 2012|By Grant Gordon,

The following are updates on local athletes at the collegiate level.

Alyssa Selve (Glendale Community College, 2012) junior, Adams State College women's cross-country: Having had a big hand in the Vaqueros' state championship, Selve has wasted no time in taking a big role with another prominent program.

Ranked second in NCAA Division II, the Grizzly women won the Regis Pre-Regional Meet on Sept. 17 in Colorado.

Selve, in her first official race for Adams State, took second in the 6K in a time of 23 minutes 34 seconds. She finished just behind teammate Lauren Martin, who won in 23:28. Also in the race for Adams was Vivian Ochoa, who ran at Glendale college, as well, and was the Grizzlies' sixth runner across, taking 18th in 25:12.


Selve ran unattached in the team's first race at the Joe Vigil Open, also in Colorado, on Sept. 8. She finished sixth overall in the 5K in 18:17. Ochoa was 27th in 19:34.

Adams is set to run in Saturday's prestigious Stanford Invitational.

Gabe Ramirez (Crescenta Valley High, 2009) senior, University of Redlands men's soccer: Ramirez has been on a tear for Redlands, scoring goals in consecutive games, starting with a game-winner on Saturday in what the school's website called "quite possibly the best goal of his four-year Bulldog career."

After a Claremont-Mudd-Scripps defender headed the ball away from his own goal off a header, the former Falcon kicked the ball out of mid-air from the top of the 18-yard box into the upper left corner of the net for the only goal in a 1-0 Redlands victory.

Ramirez kept his team unbeaten in SCIAC play at 3-0-2 when he scored his team's only goal in a 1-1 tie with Pomona-Pitzer on Monday.

Redlands, which is 3-2-3, traveled to La Verne for a Wednesday night SCIAC match.

Ramirez leads the team with three goals and seven points, as he's started and played in all eight of his team's games.

Chris Cabrera (St. Francis High, 2010) junior, California Lutheran University football: Cabrera and Co. lost a nailbiter on Sept. 15 to visiting Linfield, 33-30, but the former Golden Knights tackling machine was all over the field.

The linebacker recorded a game-high 12 tackles, with eight solo and two for a loss.

Cabrera wasn't the only former St. Francis standout to turn in a big day for the Kingsmen, as Rian Younker, a four-year starter at defensive end, tallied nine tackles with three for a loss and two sacks.
