Kylie Rojas and Rebekah Valdez have been selected as members of the Region IV Olympic Development Program regional team. A team of 18 girls was chosen from a group of over 100 kids from 13 Western States (CA, OR, WA, ID, NV, AZ, NM, AL, HI, UT, CO, WY, MT) at last month’s Region IV soccer camp, held in McMinnville, Oregon. They will represent the Western United States at their first Inter-regional event over the Thanksgiving break in Arizona.
Here is what the girls had to say about their experience:
“I’m happy that I was picked to play on the Region IV team and think that we have a very good team. It will be fun to have the chance to play against top-level players from all over the United States. I hope that I represent our region and club well”-Rebekah Valdez
“It’s definitely takes hard work, but after it all, it’s worth it to play with great players and make amazing friends during the experience.” -Kylie Rojas
