Scored four goals, giving her five for the season, as the defending Far East Class A Tournament champion Warriors improved to 5-3 with a pair of Korean-American Interscholastic Activities Conference home victories over the weekend.

Calisto, a junior, on Friday scored twice in the first half of Daegu American’s 5-0 shutout of Yongsan International Seoul. The next morning, Calisto scored once in the first half and once in the second and the Warriors blanked Korea International 3-0.

“She has good passing and ball-control skills and works hard on improving her game,” coach Ed Thompson said. “She has speed, anticipates where our through shots are going, gets to the ball and has strong, accurate shots on goal.”
