Go Falcons!

Go Falcons!

For the first time in Folsom Lake College’s brief athletics’ history, a Falcon has been named the California Community College Athletic Association (CCCAA) Athlete of the Month. Freshman Samantha Madsen is the CCCAA Athlete of the Month for October as she scored 18 goals, including two hat tricks, while leading the first-year team to an 8-0-1 record during October. For the official news release, go to: http://cccaasports.org/AOTM/October13.pdf. Congratulations, Sam!

In other news, the Bay Valley Conference has named their 2013 Women’s Soccer All-Conference teams as well as Players and Coaches of the Year, highlighted by nine Folsom Lake College players receiving recognition. At the top of the list is Samantha Madsen, voted the BVC’s Most Valuable Player for 2013. Sam led the state in scoring this season with 32 goals and 4 assists. Named as the BVC Defensive MVP for 2013 is Folsom Lake’s Anna Atteberry, a center back who started all 21 games for the Falcons. Goalkeeper of the Year in the BVC is Alison Darr, who recorded 8 shutouts and allowed just 7 goals all season.

First-Team All-Conference award winners for FLC are forward Caitlin Castle, center midfielder Danielle Otto, and outside defender and team captain Amberly Bole. Falcons who earned Second Team All-Conference awards are midfielder Taylor Camin, center back Rozzlyn Sovereign, and outside defender Chelsea Cunningham.

Not to be outdone by his players, Falcons’ Head Coach Donny Ribaudo was named the Bay Valley Conference Coach of the Year. “I’m just really impressed with the job Donny has done, starting this program from scratch and building a winning program in his first season,” commented rival Mendocino College coach Shane Huff. “You guys must be so proud of this team. They play hard, they’re organized, and they don’t give up.” 

Congratulations to Coach Ribaudo and the Bay Valley Champion Falcons!
