Gomera-Stevens named All-Region
Kansas City, MO - Continuing to add to her shelf of awards, senior midfielder Makamae Gomera-Stevens was named to the 2020-21 United Soccer Coaches NCAA Division I Women's All-Pacific Region Team as announced Tuesday. Gomera-Stevens took home first team honors following in the footsteps of all-time great Morgan Weaver who took home the same honor at the end of the 2019 season. The award marked the first all-region honor for Gomera-Stevens.
Closing out her career in the Crimson and Gray, the native Hawaiian notched four goals on the year, the second most among Cougar scorers. With a penchant for the dramatic, Gomera-Stevens made the most of her scoring chances notching a pair of game-winners, sending the Cougs to wins over Eastern Washington and Colorado. The two game-winners pushed her career total to eight, a mark which ranks tied for fourth all-time in WSU's record books.
For her career, Gomera-Stevens posted 13 goals and nine assists for 35 total points. With their Hawaiian spark plug in the middle the Cougars rose to historic heights over four seasons advancing to the schools first sweet-16 in 2017 before earning a trip to the College Cup in 2019. In four years, Gomera-Stevens and her senior classmates cemented their legacy as the most decorated class in program history having won 45 games and advancing to at least the second round in each of their three seasons, a program first.
As a first team all-region honoree, Gomera-Stevens is now eligible for all-america honors.
Gomera-Stevens, the 27th pick in the 2021 NWSL Draft, will take her talents to Houston where she will begin her professional soccer career May 15 as the Dash take on Gotham FC to kick off the 2021 regular season.
