Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy’s annual three-day soccer camp, held July 6-8 to introduce incoming freshman players to the high school’s varsity team, was led this summer by two guest coaches with outstanding credentials.
“We’ve done this at our camp for many years,” explained FSHA co-coach Frank Pace. “It’s great for the players.”
Both guest coaches come from nearby colleges. Isabelle Harvey, the women’s head coach at Cal Poly Pomona, is the all-time leading scorer for USC, was an All American, and played for the Canadian Women’s National Team. Kerri Sanchez, the women’s head coach for the combined team of players from Claremont McKenna College, Harvey Mudd College and Scripps College (collectively known as CMS), played for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she helped her team win four national championships and was an Academic All American. She played for the U.S. Women’s National Team.
“The camp not only gives the freshmen time with the older players but also gives them an idea of what it takes to make the varsity team at Flintridge,” said FSHA co-coach Kathy Desmond.
FSHA’s soccer team won the Southern California Regional Championship earlier this year.
