Participation and success at these camps has led to her most recent invitation – to be rostered on the U-19 Women’s National Team, with 21 other players from around the country, and travel to Delden, Netherlands from November 1st through 10th to train and play two matches against their Dutch counterpart.  Capitalizing on her skills as an attacking left-footed player, the WNT is rostering MJ as a left defensive back.

While at Anthem Prep, MJ has excelled playing for the Eagles soccer team and for the HS basketball team.  MJ is a scholar athlete, committed to academics and to her soccer development over the past several years in club soccer.  After graduation, she has committed to play soccer for the University of Portland Pilots.  MJ’s official signing day is coming up on November 14th.
