Katherine Sheehy is the 2017 WSC North women's soccer Player of the Year and 12 SBCC players made the all-conference team.

Santa Barbara (21-1-1) had its best season ever, winning the WSC North (8-0) and finishing second in the state after a 2-1 loss to Fresno City. The Vaqueros set school records with a 21-game win streak and allowed just six goals for the season.

Sheehy, a sophomore forward from Altadena, Calif., tied for first in conference with nine goals and one assist in eight games. She scored 15 goals on the season with 36 points and five game-winning goals. She was named first-team All-West Region and second-team All-American. She also received All-State and All-South Region honors from the California Community College Soccer Coaches Association.
