Breaking the mold

Kim Fraisse etched her name into Crescenta Valley lore with scoring record during breakout junior campaign

April 07, 2010|By Charles Rich

And, in terms of her offense, record-shattering as it was, Fraisse wasn’t even aware that she had shattered Tchougounova’s goal-scoring record. Tchougounova finished with 116 goals during the 2006-07 season en route to being named All-Area Player of the Year.

“You hope stuff like that can happen,” Fraisse said. “I never kept track of it.

“Coach Loporchio came over with the ball and gave it to me. I was in complete shock. It’s an exciting moment and a great achievement.”

Munoz, a senior, had one of the better vantage points from the cage of what Fraisse could do. Munoz watched Fraisse become an elite scorer and someone who could take over a match at any given moment.


“You can always trust her on offense and defense,” said Munoz, who finished with 258 saves and recorded a team-best 42 assists. “She’s been an amazing player and she can go far [in extending her career].

“She also helped out with a lot of our players getting better. She’s very humble and that’s a good quality to have. It’s amazing what can happen when you play with someone that talented and dedicated.”

There’s another season around the corner for Fraisse. Plenty of goals are still within reach, including trying to lead the Falcons to another league crown, and, perhaps eclipse her goal-scoring record.

She’s got about eight months to prepare.

“I’ll just keep on practicing, work on the same things and try to keep it going,” Fraisse said. “We achieved a lot this past season and we’ll see what we can all improve on.”
