Ramirez, a forward who attended Riverside's Hillcrest High School, will be continuing her soccer career and education at Cal State Dominguez Hills. Ramirez was a first-team All-Inland Empire Athletic Conference selection during the 2023 season. In 2023, she scored six times while adding one assist. In her two years at SBVC, she tallied 14 goals.
