  Years of hard work paid off for GBHS sophomore varsity soccer player Bella Ternero, who recently committed to play soccer at California State University, Long Beach.

 Playing the game since she was only four years old, soccer has been a huge part of Bella’s life and will continue to be as she progresses through high school, on a club team and school team, and onto a college team.

  She has been playing on the San Juan Soccer Club Elite Clubs National League team for almost three years, and started on the Granite Bay varsity squad as a freshman last year.

  Ternero’s ongoing passion for soccer is partly due to her love for the excitement and fight that comes along with the game, as well as the strong connections that are made with teammates.

  “I love coming and seeing my teammates, who are also my best friends, everyday, and experiencing wins and losses with people who are like my family,” Ternero said.

  Committing to Long Beach State soccer was a year and a half long process that involved a great deal of communication, dedication, and hard work, and Bella says she couldn’t have done it alone.

  “My dad and my coaches have definitely helped me the most through it all. My dad was always there to train me and help me through the hard times, and my coaches have always believed in me and helped communicate to college coaches for me,” Ternero said.

  Playing soccer in college has been a dream of Bella’s for as long as she can remember, and she is hopeful for what her future at Long Beach State has in store.

  “I’m excited for the new experience all around – to meet my teammates and play the sport I love with great coaches at a great college,” Ternero said.
