Strong senior women’s soccer season earns Mount Si grad accolades by college league

On the heels of a senior season that saw her lead her team in scoring, Whitworth University senior women’s soccer forward – and Valleyite – Leah Corra has earned accolades for her efforts on the field.

The Northwest Conference of NCAA Division III yesterday named Corra, a 2014 Mount Si High School grad from the Ames Lake area outside Fall City, to the conference’s second team postseason all-league women’s soccer list, one of five Bucs to earn recognition. Whitworth this season had a solid 12-6-2 record and finished tied for second in conference play with Puget Sound, both teams going 11-3-2 in conference play.

Not receiving recognition, though, was another Valleyite, Duvall’s Sydney Kuehn. The Linfield sophomore, a 2016 Cedarcrest High School grad, missed out on postseason recognition despite a solid season for the Wildcats, who finished at .500 (9-9-2 overall, 7-7-2 conference) this fall.

Her high school coach, ex-MSHS girls’ soccer coach Darren Brown, now the school’s athletic director, is thrilled. “Go Leah Corra!!!” Brown said by email to the SVSJ. “Wildcat Nation is so proud of you!”

A congrats from us as well to Corra, who becomes the second MSHS grad to receive recognition this fall for her play on the pitch – as we’ve told you, Western Washington University junior Karli White, a 2015 Wildcat alum, earned first-team accolades and the Newcomer of the Year award from her conference, the NCAA Division II Great Northwest Athletic Conference.

Good stuff. Coming up in a while, we’ll have some additional news on local athletes making college decisions in the current letter of intent signing period.
