Angelica Ramos Earns First CCAA Women's Soccer Player of the Week Nod of 2019
CHICO, Calif. – Angelica Ramos of the No. 3 University of California San Diego soccer team was named the first California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Women’s Soccer Player of the Week for the 2019 season as the Tritons kicked off their final season in the competitive Division II conference during the week of Sept. 2-8. The CCAA made its announcement on Tuesday morning.
The goalkeeper picked up two shutouts as the Tritons started their season with a pair of 2-0 wins over Concordia University Irvine and Biola University. Ramos made seven stops across the two matches, collecting two saves in the season opener against the Concordia Eagles and five more against the Biola Eagles. The redshirt senior played all 180 minutes of the contests.
Ramos’ weekly award is her second of her career. She previously was honored on Oct. 17, 2017 for another pair of clean sheets and was ultimately named the CCAA Newcomer of the Year at the end of that season.
Ramos and the Tritons will be back in action on Saturday, as they hit the road for the first time this season. UC San Diego will face off with Azusa Pacific at Cougar Soccer Complex at 7:30 p.m.
