Heading to Nationals - Part 5, Best XI
Nationals ended and the winners were crowned. All of these players put everything they had into that final tournament. And though not all the teams earned that first place spot, there were players that did earn a special honor.
The Best XI team was first introduced at the 2011 National Championships. Similar to FIFA's all-tournament concept, the Best XI recognizes the top 11 performers in each age group, irrespective of their position on the field, throughout the tournament as voted by coaches of the participating teams in that age group.
Sporting Omaha FC had THREE players chosen for this honor:
2002 - Allison Napora and Alyssa Judkins
2000 - Allison Romero
We are some proud of these girls and for their teams!
