LOS ANGELES - Continuing the theme of players joining the Lions from Northern California, the fourth member of the 2013 LMU women's soccer recruiting class is Dayna Dolcini, a defender from Casa Grande High School in Petaluma, Calif. Dolcini was a multi-sport athlete for the Gauchos, competing on both the varsity soccer and basketball teams.
"Dayna is a great addition to our back line," said LMU Head Coach Michelle Myers. "She has the ability to play both centrally and wide, while her athleticism, along with her ability to win balls in the air, will make her a handful for opponents at both ends of the field. Dayna is the type of player who will continue to develop and get better with each season and that is very exciting to us as coaches."
Dolcini's Casa Grande High School team won the Sonoma County League title for two years and a North Coast Section Championship her sophomore year. She earned All-Sonoma County League second team honors as a junior and All-North Bay League first team honors as a senior. She was named the Best Defensive Player of her high school team and was the team captain during her senior campaign. In addition to her defensive prowess, Dolcini is also an offensive threat, finishing as the third highest scorer for the Gauchos her senior season.
Dolcini also competed on the Sonoma County Alliance club team that played at numerous national events and was the model of success off the field as a member of Casa Grande's honor roll.
