Brown Bag Lunch with Soccer Coach Keri Sanchez


The Claremont McKenna Activities Committee will host a brown-bag luncheon discussion with CMS women’s soccer coach Keri Sanchez from noon to 12:50 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 16 in the Ducey classroom.

Sanchez, who arrived at CMC in 2004, will discuss her time as a professional women’s soccer player in the women’s professional league (the WUSA, San Jose and Boston), from 2001-2003. Prior to that, she shared soccer fields with such legendary American stars as Mia Hamm, Michelle Akers, April Heinrichs, and Julie Foudyall members of the U.S. Women’s National Team.

Sanchez is a graduate of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, where she majored in physical education while competing on four NCAA championship soccer teams. While at Chapel Hill she earned various honors as a player, including All-American for three years, and captain/MVP her senior season. She received a master’s in exercise physiology from the University of Oregon.

Following the discussion, Sanchez will share simple, stress-reduction stretching exercises.
