"We are excited that Clarisa will be joining us this fall. Clarisa is an athlete that isn’t going to back down from any challenges. She will bring a competitive attitude that I am looking for in student-athletes, yet still fit the team culture that Dordt Women’s soccer has developed over the years," said Dordt coach Alex Durbin.
Quintanilla has played right mid and forward during her career and helped her team to a CIF Finals berth and a state regional finals appearance. She claimed the Hulk Award and Knight Award at Ontario Christian and earned a student-athlete honor.
"I committed to Dordt because I loved the community and I have heard nothing but amazing things about Dordt. It also feels like home and I'll be surrounded with amazing people. I'm so excited," said Quintanilla.
Clarisa is the daughter of Tony and Sandra Quintanilla of Ontario, California. She plans to study Nursing at Dordt.
