In addition to her selection to the Region I 1996 player regional pool, Cecilia was invited to the U.S. U-14 Girls' National Team Identification Camp July 31-August 6 at the University of Portland. This camp featured 100 of the top players from across the country. Cecilia was the only EPYSA player invited to the U-14 Girls' National Team Identification Camp.
In addition, Leah was also selected to the 50-member Region I 1996 player pool after a strong performance in the U-14 Region I ODP tournament and camp earlier this summer.
Marissa joins 60 Region I players who were selected to be a part of the 1997 player regional pool, for her excellent performance at the U-13 Region I ODP tournament and camp held in July.
Both Spirit United Soccer Club and Penn Fusion Soccer Academy are proud of these players and congratulate them on their accomplishments!
