The Del Mar/Carmel Valley Sharks Girls U14 All Star soccer team won its division at the La Jolla Tournament this past weekend. The local girls did not lose a game, winning all five of their matches during the tournament, held on Saturday and Sunday, beating talented teams from Ramona, Penasquitos, and Poway. The defense, consisting of Makensy Carey at goalkeeper and Rachel Lee, Makena Hervey, Christine Shoemaker, and Emma Marks at defenders, did not allow a goal the entire tournament and the Sharks were the only team to do so. Offensively, it was a team effort, with eight goals from five different girls including Cammy Doheny, Abby Ausmus, and Amelia Clayton, and all star efforts put forth from players like Malvika Jain and Stavi Augur.

The team is coached by Marianne Rigopolous and assisted by Mark Watkins.

“What we saw this weekend was a total team effort,” Rigopolous said. “We saw eight goals from five different girls, and our goalie Makensy Carey was nothing short of outstanding— the only goalie from 78 teams to pitch a shutout for the entire tournament.”

The 4th annual La Jolla All Star Tournament featured 78 teams for both boys and girls. Teams of all star players from the recreational leagues throughout San Diego County vied for the championship medals during preliminary rounds all day Saturday and on Sunday morning, concluding with the finals Sunday afternoon.
