Wagner, Zepeda Named Preseason All-Americans

Aug. 26, 2002

NEW YORK - The Santa Clara University women's soccer midfielders Aly Wagner and Veronica Zepeda have been named preseason All-Americans by Soccer Buzz Magazine.

Wagner, a two-time All-America honoree, led the nation in assists last season while being named Soccer Buzz's Player of the Year. Zepeda earned third team All-America recognition in 2001 from the magazine.

The defending NCAA champions kick off the season this Friday when Stanford visits Buck Shaw Stadium. Kick off is at 7:30 p.m. while the gates open at 6:30.

The season home opener is also "Santa Clara Community Day." The evening, sponsored by Bank of Santa Clara and the Santa Clara Chamber of Commerce and Convention-Visitors Bureau, will offer tickets to Santa Clara residents for half price, only $3.50 with a valid proof of residency, whether that be in the form of a driver's license or utility bill.

In addition to watching some of the top collegiate soccer in the country, there will also feature a pregame community fair and fan festival featuring local businesses and community organizations, the ceremonial raising of the 2001 NCAA Championship banner, and a post-match autograph session for all fans with the Bronco women's soccer team.
