The Southwestern League girls’ soccer coaches and Anthony Califano, athletic director of Temecula Valley High School, recently met to go over the selections for the First and Second All-League teams. The first-place team always hosts the meeting with their school’s athletic director, which went the way of the Lady Golden Bears, for the third straight year.

Based on where the SWL team placed also determines how many selections that team will get. Temecula Valley showcased a Co-MVP in the Offense category, sophomore Kate Jacobsen, and a Defensive MVP as well, which was senior Emma Thrapp. Vista Murrieta High School’s Reinna Gabriel was the other Offensive MVP, selected for her outstanding year with the Lady Broncos.

With their first-place finish, Temecula Valley was also granted eight selections overall: four First Team, four Second Team. Vista Murrieta received six selections: three First Team and three Second Team; Chaparral High School got four selections: two First Team and two Second Team, and Murrieta Mesa, Great Oak and Murrieta Valley high schools all received two selections each: one First Team and one Second Team.
