A shout out to South Bay Matrix FC Director of Coaching and AYSO United G2002 Coach Polo Aviles, who also runs the SYHS Girls Soccer Program and Head Coaches the Girls Varsity team. SYHS is loaded with South Bay Matrix/AYSO United players and staff. Coach Rene Venegas SBMatrix GK coach heads the Novice team, Coach Antonio Govea is the JV head coach and Coach Luis Sanchez Asst. Coach Varsity. The squad reached the CIF Semi-Finals of San Diego County, losing a heartbreaker to Escondido HS. The team captains for Coach Polo’s squad include Captain Isella Olivera, Melina Hernandez, Andrea Martinez and Monique Dominguez who play for G2002 South Bay AYSO United CSL team, and Analucia Rosales, who plays on the G2004 SB Matrix team this fall. So much for the theory that you have to play on a high-priced club soccer team to make a high school team, much less captain the squad. SYHS upended Southwest High in the CIF Quarter Finals. The CIF Semi-Finals were played on February 26.
These past three seasons San Ysidro Lady Cougars team has had an infusion of talented players from the G2002 United and G2004 Matrix team coached by the Romo brothers Hector & Frank as well as Polo and Nicole.
South Bay Matrix/AYSO United players are now starring on Varsity squads across the San Diego county. Mar Vista High, Southwest, Bonita, Montgomery, University City, Eastlake, Olympian, San Ysidro and this years CIF Champions Grossmont High School.
