What do you get when your head coach is in his eleventh season, 2 as an assistant and his ninth as the head? You get consistency, excellence and an expectation for championship level results. Coach Vince Allegra has delivered just that. 2016.2017 was bittersweet in many ways as it was his last year coaching his daughter, Frankie, in high school. She graduates along with 3 other seniors after a record setting run for girls soccer at Grace Brethren High School.
And what a run it was.
Freshman year: 2013.2014 Tri Valley League record 1-10-1 6th place
Sophomore year: 2014.2015 Frontier League record 12-1-1 Champions; CIF Southern Section Champions Division 7; State tournament 1-1
Junior year: 2015.2016 Frontier League record 14-0 Champions; CIF Southern Section Champions Division 7; State tournament 2-1
Senior year; 2016.2017 Tri Valley League record 10-0 Champions; CIF Southern Section Runner Up Division 6; State tournament 2-1
What a four years of soccer for these seniors and Coach Allegra!
League: 37-11-2 with 3 championships
CIF: 2 championships and 1 runner up
State tournament: 5-3
2016.2017 provided awards for many with Coach Allegra name Tri Valley League Coach of the Year and Sammi Fisher MVP. Sammi, Frankie, Emma Hopkins and Avery Smithson were all named 1st CIFSS Division 6.
Sammi will move on to play soccer in South Bend, Indiana for the University of Notre Dame. Frankie will stay locally and play at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks, California.
While it will be tough to say goodbye to these two, especially his daughter, Coach Allegra will have 12 returning players including the two juniors, Emma and Avery to lead the team as the once again compete for league and division championships.
