Mendez, Lambert honored

No, not David Mendez, Windsor High’s stellar forward. But his older sister, Eleanna.

The Dominican University of California senior midfielder was named to the Pacific West Conference all-conference second team this week.

During the DU regular season, its first in the Pac West Conference, Mendez had six goals, three assists and one game-deciding score. She also led the Penguins to an upset 1-0 win in the season finale over conference champion Dixie State at St. George, Utah.

Emily Lambert, an El Molino High product, was also named to the Pac West Conference second team. As a midfielder for the Hawaii Hilo Vulcans, the junior had three goals, three assists and a game-winning score.

FYI, Ellie’s brother, a Jaguar senior, is still deciding on a college choice.
