Raguse top defender

Corona del Mar High girls' soccer senior Sydney Raguse has earned the Defensive Most Valuable Player accolade in the Pacific Coast League.

Raguse is joined on the first team all-league by CdM senior goalie Sarah Cox, senior forward Ally Brahs, senior defender Amanda Stephenson and junior midfielder Annie Alvarado.

Raguse, bound for the University of Michigan, is a four-year varsity starter at defender. The co-captain brought stability as a sweeper for CdM (22-3-2, 9-0-1 in league), which won its second straight outright league title and third overall title in four years. CdM had 17 shutouts and allowed just 13 goals, on its way to its second straight CIF Southern Section Division 1 quarterfinal appearance.

Cox, a co-captain, brushed off an early sternum injury, coming back for the start of league. The Stanford-bound goalie was scored on just five times, and earned eight shutouts in her 13 games played.
