Quakes - 2009

from the news article Spring 2011

My name is Amanda Meyer. I am team captain of the San Bruno Quakes Cultural Exchange Team going to Germany in 2011. We have been practicing for almost one year now. Our dedication for going to Germany is very strong. We have improved very much since we started out. We are very excited to go to Germany. We hear things from the girls that went there in 2009. They tell us about the places they went to and the friends they met. We hosted a German team in the summer of 2010 and it was fun. The team has bonded so much since we started one year ago.  We are one big family. Everyone has made tons of friends. We really work hard at practices. Right now everyone is on 2 teams, the cultural exchange team and a fall season team. We could not have gone this far and progressed without our parents’ support. Also without our coach Joaquin Rodriguez Jr., who has put so much time into our team. He really believes in us. All of the players have learned and played all of the positions this year. We have 22 players. These wonderful players and their usual positions are: Megan,
defense and mid; Victoria, mid and forward; Lauren, forward and mid; Amanda, defense; Veronica, goal keeper
and defense; Melanie, everything; Alejandra, mid and forward; Maite, mid and forward; Janae, forward; Hailey, mid and forward; Emily, everything; Natalie, goal keeper, defense and forward; Ixcalli, forward and mid; Adriana, defense and mid; Anisha, forward and mid; Marcela, forward and mid; Kaeley, forward and mid; Rebecca, defense; Amaya, forward and mid; Jamie, everything; Julissa, forward and mid; Ashika, everything. Now you met the team and know what we play. Wish us luck in Germany!!!!
