Alumni Hawks Swoop In
In our first alumni game in the 15 year history of Santiago Canyon College Women's Soccer, over 40 former Hawks from seasons past, returned to take on the current team in an entertaining game between two talented squads in front of a large crowd. It was great to see so many players, coaches and families return. For some the field was in a different location. For many, the campus was barely recognizable from when they attended SCC. But for all, it was good to reunite, see some new faces and get reacquainted with some team-mates from years past.
The Women's Soccer staff would like to thank the alumni student-athlete soccer community for their individual and collective contributions to the success of SCC Women's Soccer program specifically. It would also like to thank them for helping build the profile of the college in the local community and across the State/Nation.
The list of accomplishments for the program is something that all team-mates can be proud of, from our inaugural season in 2000 to our currents squads 2014 21-1-3 record, 11th consecutive Orange Empire Conference Championship, and our 7th State-Final appearance in the last 9 years. Of course, the 2006 and 2009 squads distinguish themselves with their respective State and National titles but the college can also proudly boast the teams academic achievements. The SCC squad has won the State Academic title 4 times in the last 8 years and 94% of the outgoing sophomores in the last 3 cycles have transferred to university, with 9 players last year moving on to play.
Such figures are a testament to the support of the college community, including faculty, classified staff, and administration and also our community college district. The respective Athletic Directors over this period also deserve recognition for helping the program and it's student-athletes to flourish. A substantial part of the credit should go to the coaches and athletic trainer that work so closely with the team. But the real credit goes to the players, who embrace a life of personal responsibility and accountability, and go on to achieve great things.
Below follows a list of former student-athletes listed in order by year and by maiden name, if now married. If you are reading this as a former player and want to be included in future events please email Ian at Woodhead_Ian@SCCollege.edu.
A sincere thank you to all those who came back last night. #Hawk4Life.
