MORAGA, Calif. - The Saint Mary's women's soccer team has welcomed Corin Hernandez to the team and the Modesto native will begin taking classes and play the Spring season with the Gaels.
"Corin bleeds blue and red," said head coach Kai Edwards. "She is a hard working and athletic defender... we look for her to develop to a high level here at SMC."
Hernandez attended Oakdale HS in the central valley. She played varsity soccer and led her squad to the 2011 Norcal State Championship. Other honors included a 2010 WAC Gold and a Scholar-Athlete.
"Corin comes from a great family and her club environment at Modesto Ajax and Mustang Blast have prepared her well," said Edwards.
She graduated early from Oakdale and was able to enroll at Saint Mary's early and play with the team this coming spring. Hernandez chose Saint Mary's because of the atmosphere, the small class sizes and the family feel of the community.
