Women's Soccer Inks Three Talented Players
Feb. 26, 2001
BERKELEY - Three talented players have signed letters of intent to play for the California women's soccer team beginning with the 2001 season, Golden Bear head coach Kevin Boyd announced today.
'We are excited about the three players we have signed to fill our limited needs that arose due to graduation,' said Boyd, who is Cal's all-time winningest coach at 54-25-3. 'Our focus was on solidifying our goalkeeping situation for the next four years with the graduation of All-Pac-10 goalkeeper Maite Zabala and on bringing in someone who could play both in the midfield and up top. We definitely achieved both goals with players who will help Cal soccer continue to improve on the national level.'
Cal posted a school record 17-3-1 record during the 2000 season and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
Cal has added two goalkeepers with U.S. under-18 national team pool experience. A 5-7 goalkeeper from Davis, Calif., Sani Post joins the Golden Bear program with two years of eligibility. She spent her first two collegiate seasons as a backup to two veteran keepers at Notre Dame, which advanced to the NCAA final four both years she was in South Bend, Ind. In two years, she saw a combined 328 minutes in goal in 10 games, allowed only one goal, made six saves and recorded 2.5 shutouts. As a senior at Davis High School, Post was named a Parade All-American, was on Soccer America's top 25 incoming freshman list and was selected to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA)/adidas Youth All-America team. She also helped lead Davis High to a No. 1 NSCAA ranking as a senior with a 25-0-1 record.
Mallory Moser, a 5-9 goalkeeper from Mill Valley, Calif., was named an NSCAA All-American as a junior at Branson High School. Moser is a two time all-league selection and earned her high school's Outstanding Defensive Player award in 1999. She brings to Berkeley extensive experience on the ODP District V team and the NorCal State team. The youth national team athlete has competed in club soccer since she was in fourth grade and currently plays for Boyd on the Marin Rockers.
Kacy Hornor is a center midfielder/forward from San Francisco who has barely tapped into her potential according to Boyd. Hornor has played for the Cal-North State team for three years and also is a member of the Marin Rockers. She has been to the finals and semifinals of the Surf Cup. After leading University High School in scoring the last three years, she has earned NSCAA Far West regional team honors and twice was a first team all-league selection. After leading her league in scoring as a junior, she enters her senior season as her school's third all-time leading scorer and is on pace to graduate as the No. 1 scorer in school history.
