For the second straight year, Solano Community College soccer’s Kirstyn Gotschall, a Vacaville High grad, has been named Goalkeeper of the Year for the Bay Valley Conference.
Teammate Isabella Kelly-Fondersmith is the Midfielder of the Year.
Joining those two on the first-team all-conference squad for Solano are Will C. Wood grads Brooke Molina, a sophomore defender, and sophomore forward Isabel Olmedo, as well as Vacaville High product Karla Cardinal, a sophomore midfielder.
Second-team all-conference Falcons are sophomore defender Melinda Rashidian, sophomore midfielder and Vacaville High grad Grace Lee and freshman defender Samarah Hendricks, a Wood alum.
Gotschall recorded 25 saves in a 0-0 tie with Los Medanos and 24 saves in a double-overtime 2-1 loss to Reedley in the CCCAA Regional Play-in Round. In her two years at Solano, she started in goal in all 38 games, recording 17 shutouts.
Kelly-Fondersmith is a holding defensive midfielder, yet still had three assists and seven goals this season, many of the goals long-range bombs, including the lone score against Reedley.
Olmedo ended her twoyear Solano career with 32 goals and 12 assists. Cardinal compiled 38 assists in two years. Lee, the center midfielder, scored three goals and had eight assists this year.
American Canyon 67, Concord 48

American Canyon’s next game is Saturday against Armijo.
Vintage 53, Bethel 42
The Bethel High boys basketball team lost to Vintage 53-42 on Tuesday in a Foundation Game.
The Foundation Game doesn’t count toward the Jaguars record but all the gate receipts are for a scholarship.
