5-9 | Midfielder
Temecula, Calif. (Rancho Christian HS)
“Irene comes from one of the top-clubs in the nation, Legends FC, and is a very good soccer player. She plays for the Thailand youth national team and possesses exceptional technique and composure on the ball in the midfield. Irene will help progress our game in the midfield and is a real attacking threat with her passing and creative ability. Irene is also a Liverpool fan, so she is clearly a great fit for our program.”
5-8 | Defender
Gilbert, Ariz. (Casteel HS)
“Alisha is a very strong, athletic, and technical player. She can cover a lot of ground quickly and makes great decisions with the ball at her feet. Her distribution playing forwards will definitely help the attacking side of our game.”
5-7 | Defender
Riverside, Calif. (Riverside Poly HS)
“Alexis also comes from Legends FC, and can play anywhere across the back line. She has exceptional speed, reads the game well, and is great on the ball. Alexis likes to get forwards down the flanks and is a dangerous player when she joins the attack.”
