Local All-Conference Athletes

| Canyon Country Magazine | January 31, 2020

Four College of the Canyons students who are athletic standouts went to high school on this side of the Santa Clarita Valley. Soccer players Emily Perez, who graduated from Golden Valley High School in 2019, and Celia Franco, a 2015 Canyon High School graduate, were first team selections for the All-Western State Conference, South Division. There were seven athletes from the COC women’s soccer team who gained honors following a season in which the Cougars led the Western State Conference in goals and qualified for the playoffs for a ninth consecutive year.
Perez is a freshman midfielder who finished the season with seven goals, including two game winners, and an assist, while serving as one of the team’s captains. Franco, who also served as a captain, scored three goals from her defensive position.

Canyon graduates Madison Martinez and Kyra Titner picked up honors for their volleyball performance at College of the Canyons. Martinez, a sophomore, and Titner, a freshman at COC, picked up All-WSC Honorable Mention accolades.

Martinez was fourth on the squad with 116 kills while playing from the outside hitter and opposite spots. Titner, a middle blocker, finished the regular season with 84 kills and ranked third on the Cougars with a .385 hitting percentage. She also recorded 45 total blocks.
