Women's Soccer Places Six On CCAA All-Conference Squad

SAN RAMON, Calif. -- Six Sonoma State women's soccer student-athletes were selected to the 2016 California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Women's Soccer All-Conference Teams, led by the Seawolves' lone First Team selection, sophomore midfielder Miriam Bloom, it was announced at the CCAA Soccer Tournament Banquet Thursday in Turlock on the eve of conference tournament semifinals. 

Also earning recognition was junior forward Sara Van Wagoner and junior defender Cecilia Sifuentes, both selected to the Second Team, while junior forward Katie Mohr and senior midfielders Taylor Enzler and Madison Minton grabbed Honorable Mention nods.

Miriam Bloom captured her second All-CCAA award in as many seasons.  Hailing from Encinitas, Calif., Bloom is tied for second on the team with 10 points, netting two goals and assisting on six others.  She earned All-CCAA Second Team honors as a freshman last season.

Sara Van Wagoner, also a two-time All-CCAA performer, grabbed Second Team accolades for the second-straight season as the native of San Jose, Calif., leads the team with 12 points (two goals and a team-leading eight assists).

Cecilia Sifuentes is now a three-time All-CCAA honoree, securing an Honorable Mention as a freshman in 2014, followed by a Second Team selection as a sophomore last season in 2015.  Sifuentes, from Alameda, Calif., is one of the anchors of the Seawolf defense that is ranked 11th in the nation -- and second in the CCAA -- with a 0.43 goals against average.

Katie Mohr, despite suffering a season-ending injury back on Oct. 2, is still tied for the team lead in goals scored with four with teammate -- and fellow All-CCAA Honorable Mention honoree -- Taylor Enzler.  A native of Santa Rosa, Calif., Mohr was honored with an All-CCAA nod for the first time in her career, and for Enzler, of Ukiah, Calif., it is her second-straight Honorable Mention accolade.  Madison Minton, of Santa Rosa, Calif., also grabbed an Honorable Mention, the first of her career.

Sonoma State, the No. 2 seed in the CCAA Tournament, will take on No. 6 seed Cal State L.A. in the first of two women's semifinal matches on Friday, kicking off from Warrior Stadium in Turlock at 4:30 pm.  The Seawolves also remained at No. 3 in this week's official NCAA Division II West Region Poll and should be in line to qualify for their fourth NCAA Tournament appearance in the last five seasons.
