Congratulations to Cali Fournier, Sara Simpson, Mackenzie McGlynn and Amber Tran. Cali and Sara were named to the NJCAA All-Region 16 First Team. Cali led the Trail Blazers with 10 goals and 2 assists during her freshman season. Her speed and tenacity were a constant menace to the opposition. Sara also had an excellent freshman campaign. She anchored the defense for the Trail Blazers, but also managed to contribute 5 assists with some incisive dribbling into the attacking third of the field.
Mackenzie McGlynn and Amber Tran were named to the NJCAA All-Region 16 Second Team. Mackenzie, a sophomore captain, made a major contribution with 8 goals and 1 assist. Her season highlight was a 3 goal effort in the final regular season game. Amber Tran played both center back and midfield. Her all around ability and competitiveness allowed her to play and excel in multiple positions for the Trail Blazers!
Congratulations to all four of these outstanding student-athletes!
