Los Altos Hills native Sofia Jones, a defender, recently helped the Santa Clara University women’s soccer team reach the third round of the NCAA playoffs.
Sofia Jones’ soccer season didn’t end the way she hoped – her Santa Clara University women’s team was eliminated in the third round of the NCAA playoffs – but the Los Altos Hills native is optimistic about the Broncos’ chances of advancing further next fall.
“My main goal is for the team next year to win the national championship,” said Jones, a junior. “This year we made it to the top 16, but we lost to USC in that round (1-0), which was disappointing. Still, it’s hopeful because it shows that we’re getting closer to titles, so hopefully that will happen.”
