My name is Isla Hawkins, graduation year 2022. I am currently about to start my Junior year at Santa Cruz High School where I carry a 4.17 GPA. The club team I play for is the Santa Cruz Breakers 04G (U17 NPL), jersey #13. I also routinely play up for our Santa Cruz Breakers 02G team (U18/U19 NPL). I am a passionate, feisty, and skillful player on the pitch with extreme tactical awareness both on and off the ball. Although I traditionally play as an attacking center mid (#10), I am versatile and also play right and left wings, outside defense and striker. I always work my hardest on and off the field, no matter the circumstances and am constantly working to inspire my team towards success in my leadership role as team captain of my U17 club team.
Some of my accomplishments within this past year include making the regional/state Nor Cal PDP pool, assisting my club team in a top finish at multiple showcase and tournament events including the Player's Showcase in Las Vegas, and finishing off my second year of High School with a solid 4.38 grade average while making both the Varsity Soccer and Track & Field teams as a Freshman. In addition, I was selected for First team All Conference for my league (SCCAL) last season .
Outside of school and soccer, I like to volunteer my own time to training my younger sister in soccer, volunteering at the SPCA, and helping with the can food drive.
My goal for college is to find a school that has my field of study and has a strong Women's Soccer Program. I am a well rounded person who comes with endurance, speed, tenacity, leadership, friendship, and a fun, supportive personality.
