The 2018-19 Clovis Community College Women's Soccer season is set to begin this week! The Crush look to build on a fantastic 2017-18 sophomore season that saw them finish with a 15-7-1 overall record, a 10-1-1 2nd place conference record, and their first trip to the CCCAA playoffs.
The Crush will be returning 11 players from last year's roster, with the most notable being 2017 All Conference players defender Esmeralda Navarro (Madera South HS),defender Marie Tejeda (Sanger HS), midfielder Vanessa Torres (Buchanan HS), and forward Savannah Dungan (Kerman HS).
The 2018 recruiting class brings experienced players from all over the Central Valley. Notable players on defense are CMAC All-Conference goalkeeper Brianna Alarrazabal (Sanger HS), CMAC All-Conference defender Jackelyn Segura (Sanger HS), and CSL Defender of the Year Karlee Hodges (Kingsburg HS). Some new additions to the offense are midfield transfer Mia Castillo (Clovis East HS/Fresno Pacific University), CMAC Midfielder of the Year Ariana Quintero (Edison HS), and forward Brooke Gill (Madera HS).
The Crush kick off the season against their final opponent from last season, hosting Santa Rosa Junior College on Tuesday, August 28 at 4pm. Santa Rosa knocked the Crush out of the playoffs last season, so it should make for a great season opener.
