April 2, 2014
LOS ANGELES - Introduction of the 2014 LMU women's soccer recruiting class concludes with a quartet who hail from Southern California, Hawaii and Arizona, continuing the trend of a diverse background of players to don a Lion uniform.
Aubrielle Camacho joins the Lion program from Los Osos High School where she starred as a left back. She helped lead Los Osos HS to back-to-back Baseline League Championships in 2011 and 2012, earning all-league honors both years. In 2012, the squad also won the CIF title and advanced to the State Championship game. A four-time All-Baseline League selection, Camacho was a first team selection in 2013 and 2014.
"Aubrielle continues the trend of playing alongside a club teammate while at LMU," LMU Head Coach Michelle Myers said. "She plays for the same West Coast FC team as goalkeeper Charlee Pruitt. Aubrielle also follows the trend of following in the footsteps of family who have attended LMU with several cousins who are LMU graduates and other family members who are avid LMU supporters.
"Aubrielle is another left footed player who can play anywhere in the defense. She is quick, strong and strikes the ball well. Aubrielle will be a defender that will make an impact on both ends of the field - preventing goals at one end and creating them at the other."
Camacho also competed for the West Coast FC U17 club team that has won numerous tournament titles, most notably the Surf Cup in 2012 and the Las Vegas Players Showcase, also in 2012. Camacho was also a member of the Cal South ODP pool in 2011.
Sage "Keala" Parker-Lee hails from Sacred Hearts Academy in Honolulu where she starred as a midfielder for her prep team. The four-year varsity letter winner was named an Interscholastic League of Honolulu All-Star in 2011 and went on to be selected to the 2014 Senior All-Star Team. She led Sacred Hearts Academy in scoring in 2013 while also ranking second in the league.
"Keala joins us from Hawaii and the Leahi Soccer Club," Myers said. "She continues a tradition of Hawaiians playing in an LMU jersey with several of those alums also former members of Leahi. Keala is a central midfielder that we will be looking to help us maintain possession and connect us back to front and side to side. She is technically sound and reads the game well so her ability to help with these transitional moments is strong. Keala is another player in this class that can strike a dangerous free kick."
Parker-Lee was a member of the Hawaii ODP team from 2008-12 and attended ODP Region IV camp in 2010 and 2012. She is also a member of the Leahi '96 Premier club which won six straight Hawaii State Championships, six Major Island Soccer Association Championships and made six USYS West Regional Appearances from 2008-13.
Raquel Angelone hails from Chaparral High School in Arizona where she was a team captain in 2013-14 and a two-time first team All-Section IV selection. While only competing for her prep squad for two years, the center back also won six straight Arizona State Championships with the Sereno '96 Girls White club. The club was also a Region IV finalist in 2012 and the ECNL Mountain Conference Champions in 2012.
"Raquel comes to LMU from Arizona and Sereno Soccer Club which is another familiar club for former Lions including assistant coach Joslyn Shoop," said Myers. She is the type of player that college coaches love to add to their programs. She is a smart, hard-working player that continues to get better each season, and has high expectations of herself on and off the field and is willing to make sacrifices to reach those expectations."
Rounding out the 2014 recruiting class is Sarah Sanger, a forward from Los Alamitos High School. She led LAHS in goals and assists the past two seasons, helping the squad to a 2013 Sunset League title. Sanger also earned All-Sunset League honors and team Offensive Player of the Year honors in 2013. She currently competes for the FRAM Soccer Club GU18/19-Aguinaldo and previously played for Beach FC and PVSC Exiles.
"Sarah adds to our list of players hailing from Southern California," Myers said. "She plays for a club in our own backyard - Fram Soccer Club - and is a forward that is comfortable on the ball, good in the air and has good pace to get in behind defenses. She will get to the endline and get balls into the box, she has a nose for the goal and isn't afraid to fight her way through defenders. She will lay it all on the field for her team."
"The gifts all 11 of these players bring are not limited to the field as many of them are leaders in the classroom and active in their communities - all of which are important to becoming a successful student-athlete here at LMU," said Myers. "The coaching staff and team would like to officially welcome the class of 2014 into our LMU athletics program and our soccer family."
