Pineda and Shimabuku Recognized by ACAA

Pineda and Shimabuku Recognized by ACAA

Alex Pineda and Paige Shimabuku were named to the American Collegiate Athletic Association (ACAA) Soccer All-Tournament team following their play at the ACAA Championships. Both played 90 minutes against SUNY Canton. As center back, Pineda organized the back line and matched up against a very physical team. She made several key tackles, won balls out of the air, and broke down opposing attacking plays. Shimabuku contributed as a utility forward and was involved in the creation of nearly every attacking play. She combined successfully with outside backs and center midfielders in flank play, moved the ball forward as a target player, and used her incredible speed to penetrate the Canton back line, utilizing crafty footwork and off the ball movement to beat defenders.
