Jessica Miclat of Chino Hills and Julia Bingham of St. Lucy’s were among the 24 players from across the country to be selected to the roster for the U.S. Soccer Under-18 Women’s National Team training camp that will take place from April 19 through 26 in Chula Vista.

“It is not only a blessing but also a huge honor to represent my country while playing and doing the one thing I love the most (playing soccer),” Miclat stated.

From the 24 players selected to participate in the training camp, a total of 18 will make the final roster, according to Miclat.

Miclat believes she has something to offer the team if she were to make the final roster.

“I offer my hard work and dedication,” she said. “I know that throughout the training sessions and scrimmages…my touches and knowledge of the game will improve but it’s my hard work and heart and dedication that got me there and will carry on, if I am selected on the team.”

It would not be the first time Miclat, who was named to the 2015 All-Inland Valley Area team, and Bingham, who signed with USC, would be teammates if they were both named to the final roster.

The two juniors played at St. Lucy’s together during their freshman and sophomore years.

Chino Hills High School Girls Soccer takes home game on the road

A total of 5 teams from the Baseline League made the CIF Girls Division 1 playoffs: Rancho Cucamonga, Chino Hills, Los Osos, Etiwanda and Upland.RCHS

The Baseline’s No. 3 team Los Osos is traveling on the road against Flintridge Sacred Heart while Etiwanda and Upland received at-large bids and will travel as well.

The Rancho Cucamonga Cougars and the Chino Hills Huskies are listed on the bracket as the host team, but a jersey violation will send the Huskies on the road to Long Beach Millikan.chhs

The violation was because of a “two-inch strip on the shoulder of our jerseys on Jan. 3 against Ayala,” said Huskies’ coach Andy Plascencia.

Rules such as the one about the jerseys became effective by the CIF at the start of the New Year.

“The referee (from the game against Ayala) reported it,” Plascencia said. “We thought it would just be a warning at first…it did creep back up on us.”

The team has since ordered new jerseys that comply with the new CIF rules.

Since the Huskies did not have an actual home field until the final two weeks of league play, Plascencia is not worried about having to travel to Long Beach despite still being considered the home team.

“It’s not a factor for us. We have traveled and played on the road all season,” he explained. “We usually would have to travel about 45 minutes for each game so an extra 15 minutes (to Long Beach) should not be a problem.”

Sommer Larrabee and Etiwanda holds off Chino Hills

Sommer Larrabee and the Etiwanda Eagles handed the Chino Hills Huskies’ girls soccer team its first Baseline League loss, 1-0.

Larrabee scored the lone goal for the Eagles in the shutout against the Huskies, which also served as their first loss in nine games.

“Everything happened so fast, I remember getting the ball and dribbling the ball a few times,” Larrabee said. “(I) looked at the top left corner, looked back at
the ball and shot it.”

Larrabee felt that the Eagles knew the task at hand prior to the game.

“We knew as a team we needed a positive result from this game,” she said. “We played with everything we had and it showed in the final score.”

Larrabee believes that the outcome of this game serves as a lesson for her team.

“The feeling is indescribable. We knew Chino Hills was going to be a top contender in our league,” she said. “By being their first loss of the season it showed our team what we can accomplish when we play with our hearts on our sleeves. It is a game I am never going to forget.”

The victory ties the Eagles at one game apiece in the head-to-head series with the Huskies, after Etiwanda suffered a 3-1 loss to Chino Hills on Jan. 21 during a three game losing streak.

Chino Hills will finish the season on the road against Los Osos on Feb. 11 while Etiwanda will play Upland.

Etiwanda Soccer wins Oak Hills Tournament, improves to 11-0 overall

The Etiwanda Eagles hold up the Oak Hills Tournament Championship after defeating Pasadena La Salle, 1-0, on Dec. 20.

The Etiwanda Eagles hold up the Oak Hills Tournament Championship after defeating Pasadena La Salle, 1-0, on Dec. 20.

Haley Ruegsegger scored the game-winning goal during the second half for the Etiwanda Eagles in the victory over Pasadena La Salle, 1-0, to win the Oak Hills Tournament on Dec. 20.

It was not the only win for the Eagles on the day as they advanced to the title game against La Salle, following a second shutout victory in the morning against the Oak Hills Bulldogs, 2-0, in the semifinals.

The Eagles’ Katie Connor and Aleenah Perez were responsible for the goals scored against the Bulldogs.

Following the victories in tournament play, the Eagles stand at 11-0 overall with two games remaining before the start of Baseline League play.

“(The record) gives the team the confidence that we need to keep pushing ourselves,” said freshman Kelsey Huddleston. “Even though we are 11-0, we can still work harder to keep this going.”

Despite the record, the Eagles believe they could still improve at this point in the season.

“I think this year we just really work as a team and we play well together,” Ruegsegger said. “But we could always work on our composure and one-on-one (situations) offensively.”

As a defensive unit, the Eagles have only given up four goals during the first 11 games of this season.

Etiwanda is currently ranked No. 5 in the state and will play at 1 p.m. Dec. 23 against Anaheim Esperanza on the road for its last game prior to the new year.
