Sierra College soccer dominates Big 8 post-season awards
Rocklin, CA--The Sierra College soccer team's season ended too soon for newly anointed Big 8 Conference Coach of the Year Jason Gantt, but that didn't stop his players from dominating the conference, NorCal and national All-Star teams, the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) announced this week.
Six players from the 2013 Big 8 champion Wolverines were named to the All-Big 8 First Team. Leading the way was Brittney Bravo, who was named the Big 8's Attacking Player of the Year. The sophomore forward led Sierra in goals (10), assists (8) and a Big 8-leading 28 points. Bravo was also named to the NSCAA All-America Second Team and the All-West Region First Team.
Joining Bravo on the All-Big 8 team were SO forward Meghan Martell (8 assists, 47 shots, 23 points), SO defender Casey McCavitt, FR goalkeeper Molly McConnell (75 saves, .852 save %, .69 GAA, 11 shutouts), SO defender Tiffani Rice, and SO forward Carissa Schlesinger (8 assists, 7 goals, 53 shots, 22 points).
The NSCAA also placed McCavitt, who according to Gantt was the Wolverines' "heart and soul," on its All-West Region Second Team.
The Wolverines led the Big 8 from week one, finishing with an 11-1-2 conference mark to earn the program's first Big 8 title. They earned the number two seed in the CCCAA NorCal playoffs, where they overwhelmed Las Positas College 6-0 in the opening round. A surprising 2-1 upset loss to Taft College in the second round kept Sierra from reaching the state final four for the second consecutive year, but left them with an impressive 17-4-2 overall record.
