Girls Soccer: Browne Delivers the Goods

PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Lynsey Browne, St. Lucy’s, Defender, Senior
School: St. Lucy’s
Grade: Senior
Position: Defender
Notable: The Sierra League player of the year had an outstanding season in leading the Regents to the Sierra League title and a 15-4-4 overall mark, and 9-1 in league. With so many dangerous forwards to deal with, Browne was the big force on defense, helping the Regents record 12 shutouts, and five straight blank sheets during an impressive run through league against Chino Hills, Chino, Ayala, Diamond Bar and Glendora. Even more impressive was her versatility. Browne was able to get forward on counter attacks and was dangerous on set-pieces with her 5-foot-8 frame, especially on crosses, which helped her net seven goals and six assists. Also a CIF-Southern Section Division II honoree, Browne will continue her career at UC Riverside next fall.

Coach of the year
Chris Reeder

This season: For a team with so many sophomores and juniors, even Reeder was surprised how quickly everything came together for the Conquerors. The Conquerors finished 16-7-4 and beat out three others in the final week to claim the Miramonte League title over talented teams like Bonita, Diamond Ranch and Charter Oak. After starting the season by advancing to the finals of the La Mirada tournament, the Conquerors continued to shine in tournament play, winning the Garey tournament with a 2-0 decision over Magnolia, the same team it defeated in the first round of the CIF-Southern Section Division IV playoffs before losing to Cathedral City in the second round in penalty kicks.
