Soccer Signee Spotlight: Emily Sanchez
June 17, 2014
Over the past several months, Vanderbilt soccer has introduced members of its 2014 signing class. Today, we finish welcoming our eight freshmen by introducing a defender from Chino Hills, Calif.: Emily Sanchez
“Once we had a chance to watch how competitive and how hard working she was as an outside back it became a no-brainer to give her an opportunity to come in here and try to give it a shot at Vanderbilt and in the SEC,” Greene said. “We’re very excited to have her. She has a great personality and is a very hard worker.” Sanchez, who has played soccer since she was 4 years old, was a three-time all-league selection at Chino Hills High School. A three-year captain, who started the past three years, she helped the Huskies become a state power.
Chino Hills won a pair of Sierra League championships. The Huskies also reached the CIF semifinals her sophomore year and the quarterfinals her junior season. This March, Chino Hills advanced to the CIF-State Division I Southern California Regional final. Five of Sanchez’s high school teammates will be playing Division I soccer this fall.
