Two local soccer players received top all-league honors at the conclusion of the fall season.

Millennium High sophomore Nick Yanke was named most valuable player for the Central California Athletic Alliance after he finished the season as the league’s top scorer with 28 goals and 13 assists.

The Falcons finished as the CCAA champions and got as far as the semifinals of the Sac-Joaquin Section Division VI playoffs, where they lost to Capital Christian High of Sacramento, the eventual division champion.

Tracy High senior Cameron Divoky, a four-year varsity player for the Bulldogs, was chosen as the San Joaquin Athletic Association’s most valuable defender. In his four years on the team, Divoky held positions all over the field. This year, he played sweeper for the Bulldogs.
