Brambila, Eskue earn Division I field hockey honors

Two members of Fallbrook High School’s field hockey team earned all-division status for the 2008 season.

Lydia Brambila was named to the Division I first team while Lizzy Eskue was selected to the Division I second team. The Division I coaches selected their teams at a December 4 meeting.

“That was a great one,” Fallbrook coach Kathy Waite said of two all-division selections.

Brambila and Eskue are both seniors. Brambila spent three years on Fallbrook High School’s varsity team while Eskue was on the varsity for two seasons.

“I would have liked two on the first team,” Waite said.

Waite understood that the teams who reached the CIF finals were more likely to have additional representation on the all-division teams.

Fallbrook finished the 2008 season with a 14-10-1 record after a loss to Torrey Pines in the CIF Division I semifinals. Fallbrook’s league record was 6-4.

“I got what we expected,” Waite said.

Brambila, who was a defender last year, played primarily midfield in 2008. Eskue was one of Fallbrook’s defenders.

When the Avocado League’s coaches selected the all-league teams, Brambila and Eskue both earned first-team recognition.

In 2007, Brambila earned second-team recognition and Eskue was an honorable mention selection.

Eskue has verbally committed to play field hockey at the University of the Pacific while Brambila has agreed to play on the University of California, Davis team.

“Just look forward to their college. Glad to be a part of their high school careers,” Waite said.
