This season Burns has 420 saves with 30 assists and 60 steals for the Coyotes, who open the WWPA Tournament at 9 a.m. Friday against Cal State Monterey Bay at Chabot College in Hayward. The tourney is hosted by Cal State East Bay.

In her career, Burns has 1,566 saves and owns three of the top five single-season saves in school history.

Sophomore Misty Vu was named to the honorable mention squad. The Riverside native leads the Coyotes with 81 goals.
