Chaminade Sweeper Thiele Makes Soccer Coaches' All-American Team

Chaminade senior sweeper Vanessa Thiele, currently sidelined with a knee injury, has been named an All-American by the National Soccer Coaches' Assn. of America.

Thiele, last season's Mission League player of the year, helped the Eagles to their first league title and has committed to the University of San Diego.


Chaminade forward Amanda Horn will not play for the remainder of the season after suffering two ligament tears in her right knee in Monday's victory over Alemany.

Horn is the Eagles' third senior starter to be lost with an injured right knee this season.


Ryan McGuire, former All-City Section first baseman at El Camino Real High, was traded by the Boston Red Sox to the Montreal Expos on Wednesday as part of a five-player deal.

McGuire was Boston's third-round pick in 1993 and batted .333 last season at Double-A Trenton.
