It’s Scheckla’s first time on the all-league list because she hadn’t played with the Bulldog team prior to her senior year, but had played competitive soccer with club teams.
Tracy coach Nate Perry said that she ended up with more game time than the players.
“She would have been on the varsity team for three or four years,” Perry said. “I rarely took her out of there. She’s one of the better defenders I’ve had.”
The players on the all-league list are selected at the end of the season by SJAA coaches, who selected two other Tracy seniors as most valuable in their positions. Amanda Simonich is the league’s most valuable goalie and Bria Outland is one of two players selected as offensive co-MVP.
Also making the all-league team were senior midfielders Autumn Bolton, Mariah Serrato and Nicole Gasior, senior defenders Rebecca Reinin and Courtney Allen, and sophomore forward Cailie Chayrez.
Tracy went 18-3-2 overall and 8-0-2 in the SJAA to win the league title, the first undefeated record for a girls Bulldog team in 20 years under coach Joe Perry, with his son Nate taking on most of the coaching duties in the last few years. The team got as far as the quarterfinals of the Sac-Joaquin Section Division I playoffs.
Nate Perry added that his team was loaded with scholar-athletes. Eight of the 18 players on the roster and four of the nine all-league players had grade point averages of 4.0 or higher.
