Tracy High freshman Katie Strong is the Tri-City Athletic League’s MVP for 2019-20 after she and the Bulldogs won their league title and advanced to the Sac-Joaquin Section Division 1 semifinals.

Strong, her team’s scoring leader with 25 goals for the season, tied with Lincoln High sophomore Kaitlyn Garcia for the most in the TCAL, was the top pick in the season-end polling among the TCAL’s coaches.

The Bulldogs were also represented in three of the other four most-valuable categories on the all-league list. Junior Trinity Sandridge shares the Offensive MVP title with Lincoln’s Kaitlyn Garcia, sophomore Ashleigh Garcia shares Midfield MVP honors with Stephanie Torres of St. Mary’s, and junior Madeline Mannina shares Most Valuable Goalie with Natalia Ochoa of St. Mary’s.

The Bulldogs were also well-represented on the all-TCAL list for boys soccer, where senior Jose Avalos was named Offensive MVP. He led the team in goals scored (12) and was also the league’s scoring leader. Senior Brendan Terry also made the top of the list as the TCAL’s Most Valuable Goalie.
