060415s2Two San Leandro High School seniors were both named Player of the Year for the West Alameda County Conference this year.

Sarahi Gutierrez and Carlos Herrera have been part of the boys and girls San Leandro varsity soccer teams since their freshman year of high school.

Gutierrez and Herrera both made immediate impacts on their teams and flourished as both students in the classroom and as athletes on the field. Their performances in their senior year earned them the highest award in the WACC.

San Leandro has only had a handful of past players who have earned this award but this was the first time in school history that a boy and girl from both teams received it in the same season.

The two players put in extra work after their practices in order to be the best on the field and would offer to help other teammates. They were ideal captains for both their teams and played key roles.

The impact they had on the game and with their team was undeniable.  All coaches from the league remembered who Carlos #23 and Sarahi #19 were every time they played against them.

Both student athletes will continue their education and soccer careers in college. Gutierrez will play for Cal State East Bay and Herrera will play out of state and will soon be making his final decision on which school.

CAPTION: Sarahi Gutierrez and Carlos Herrera were both named Player of the Year on their respective soccer teams.
