It looks like fifth-year forward Nicole Dallin will have an even bigger offensive load to carry for Arizona soccer next season. On Thursday, Arizona State announced that the Wildcats’ second-leading scorer has transferred to the Sun Devils.
Cameron Valladares scored four goals and had one assist for Arizona last season, finishing second on the team with nine points. As a sophomore, she appeared in all 19 games with seven starts for the Wildcats. She took 27 shots with 16 of them on goal in 734 minutes of play.
That was a big step up from her freshman year. As a rookie, Valladares appeared in seven games, playing 156 minutes. She took four shots with one on goal.
Dallin led Arizona with 20 points. She had nine goals and two assists, more than doubling everyone else on the team.
Arizona head coach Becca Moros signed a class of nine in November. She added two more signees last week. The class consists of 10 high school recruits and a junior college transfer.
Arizona defeated Arizona State by the score of 2-1 last season, but the Sun Devils made the postseason. The Wildcats have not been to the NCAA Tournament since 2019.
