Bishop Amat’s Sophia Serafin voted 2017 SCPL Girls Soccer FAN VOTE Player of the Year

Sophia-Serafin,-Bishop-Amat

The talent is there, and so is the support.

Bishop Amat striker Sophia Serafin totaled almost 13,500 votes during the course of the week, which earned her the right to be named 2o17 SCPL Fan Vote Girls Soccer Player of the Year.

The return of Serafin instantly changed the landscape for the Lancers girls soccer team, who won the Del Rey League title and advanced to the CIF Southern Section Division 3 semifinals before losing a heartbreaker to Claremont, 1-0.

Serafin, who starred at Amat as a freshman and signed a national letter of intent to play at prestigious Stanford in the fall, missed her sophomore and junior seasons due to commitments with U.S. National youth teams and injuries, but she made the most of her senior season. Serafin led the San Gabriel Valley with 41 goals to go with 24 assists in helping lead Amat to a 24-5 overall record to be named the Tribune girls soccer player of the year.

Serafin had a remarkable game in the quarterfinals against Chaminade, scoring six goals in an 8-1 victory and was named to the CIF-SS Division 3 first team.
