Amid all the Mission League magnificence, playoff pitfalls and postseason pinnacles that have summed up the last four seasons of Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer history, Breeana Koemans was there.
Through all the tribulation and triumph, injury and absence, brilliance and bitterness that made up the 2012 Tologs season, No. 10 was there.
She was a complete package on the field, possessing ability in both feet to score from near and far, a pinpoint passer, a vocal leader, a physical presence and a statistical splendor. But perhaps what stuck out most was the simple fact that she was always there. Whether it was a nonleague match, against a league rival, in a CIF Southern Section Division I playoff game or a CIF Southern California Regional contest, she was there.
And during her senior season, when the Tologs were synonymous with injuries and missing standouts, she was a constant. She was constantly clutch, she was constantly at her best against the best and she was constantly the very best in the area. Thus, Breeana Koemans was unanimously voted the 2012 All-Area Girls' Soccer Player of the Year by the sports editors and writers of the Glendale News-Press, Burbank Leader, La Cañada Valley Sun and Pasadena Sun.
