P2P NCS Girls Soccer Honors
California's Nikki Trucco (#3) is the NCS Sophomore of the Year.

NCS Sophomore of the Year

Trucco was an explosive scorer for the Grizzlies, who reached the NCS Division I semifinals and posted their best record in five years.

The sophomore standout notched 18 goals to go with six assists, including hat tricks in wins over Berkeley and Dougherty Valley. She scored a goal and an assist in a playoff win over Deer Valley.

Nikki, whose twin sister Lexi was recognized as an all-league midfielder, can also be considered one of the top break-through talents this season. After scoring just one point in eight games as a freshman, she burst on the scene with 42 points in 21 games for the Grizzlies this year.

Her efforts led a California program which lost just four games this year, three of those to league champion and section finalist Carondelet, while also picking up a win over Division II champion Livermore.

Other players considered for this award: Piedmont’s Clara Kochendorfer, Livermore’s Kamryn Farro, and Northgate’s Julia Hagedorn.
