Fallbrook High School’s field hockey team held its awards banquet December 2 at Zion Lutheran Church, and the team saw two of its awards shared by two players.
Seniors Kyle Little and Christine Russell shared the team’s Most Valuable Player honor; both also earned first-team Avocado League honors. Little played midfield for the Warriors and Russell was a defender.
Juniors Amanda Mulkey and Blanca Barrientos shared the Most Improved award. Mulkey is a midfielder and Barrientos plays defender.
Junior goalkeeper Jahna Jordan was the Most Inspirational recipient for the varsity squad.
The junior varsity Most Valuable Player award went to freshman goalie Jordan Dues. Sophomore midfielder-forward Katie Moore was the junior varsity’s Most Improved honoree, and the JV’s Most Inspirational honor was given to sophomore defender Jackie Eskue.
The banquet also included a slide show put together by Russell’s parents.
Fallbrook finished the 2009 season with a 20-7 record, including two playoff wins and a loss to San Pasqual in the CIF final. The Warriors’ 6-4 Avocado League record tied La Costa Canyon for third place in the conference standings.
All-league honors were bestowed upon eight Warriors. The Guac Girls club team comprised primarily of Fallbrook High School varsity and junior varsity players won its pool at the National Field Hockey Festival in La Quinta during Thanksgiving Weekend.
“Just a really good cap to a wonderful season,” Fallbrook varsity coach Kathy Waite said of the banquet.
