San Diego Premier field hockey club, based in Carmel Valley, took a first place and a second place in the Under 16 division of the Cal 6v6 Tournament last week in northern California.

This was the first competitive event for the new club, led by Torrey Pines varsity coaches Katy Moyneur and Chilly Banuelos-Lomeli. SDP took three teams to the tourney and all did remarkably well, compiling a record of 15 wins and one two defeats.

A total of 24 teams from more than a dozen top California clubs took part in the tournament, hosted by UC Berkeley’s collegiate field hockey program. But SD Premier was the only club that had two teams advance to the championship round.

SDP Yellow won the U16 middle championship in a shootout over Moorpark Coyotes after regulation ended in a tie. SDP Blue finished second at the U16 elite level in another shootout (that went six rounds) after their title game against Hollywood AC finished in a 3-3 draw. In another excellent showing, Team Red lost only one game all day.

Five Torrey Pines players traveled to Berkeley with SDP including forward Shannon Yogerst, midfielder Gabi Jimenez and defender Farah Farjood on the Team Blue; and forwards Gabi LeRose and Dani Jackel on the Team Red.
