OLLU women’s soccer adds Stephanea Valles from El Paso

The women’s soccer team is proud to announce the signing of incoming freshman Stephanea Valles. She will join the team in 2020-2021.

Valles is a center midfielder from El Dorado High School in El Paso, Texas.

Valles was named to the First Team All-District two years in a row and named to the All-City Team. She heard about OLLU when she was at a tournament in Houston and was introduced to an OLLU assistant coach.

Her athletic role model is retired professional soccer player Ronaldinho. Her favorite quote is “There is no better feeling than stepping out on that field and stunning them all by doing what none of them thought you could.”

Head Coach Arthur Salazar said, “We are excited to have Stephanea join the program. She is a solid midfielder with a very good read of the game and solid technical ability. We feel Stephanea can come in and contribute to help strengthen our attack.”
