Summer Yates, G99 M, was selected for the girls U-14 U.S. National soccer player pool. She will at the U.S. National camp January 27th-31st in Phoenix, Arizona. Summer plays on the G99 Maroon team coached by Leighton O’Brien. She was notified of making the U.S. National player pool while playing for her Washington state EPD team at the ODP Championships in Phoenix, Arizona on January 9th-12th. She made the U.S. Region IV team (pool of players from the 14 western states) this past summer. She felt if she performed well there she might have a chance to make the U.S. national team…the majority of the top players in the country seem to be coming out of the southern California area, so getting over that huge hurdle would put her in a good position to be considered for the National team. GOOD LUCK, SUMMER!!!
