ECLIPSE SELECT TRIO JOINS U.S. U-17 WNT CAMP THIS WEEK
Naperville natives Ahmadian and Bebar and Buffalo Grove’s Van Zanten headed to California camp
CHICAGO (Oct. 18, 2017) – Three Eclipse Select Soccer Club players are headed to a U.S. U-17 Women’s National Team camp starting this Saturday in Chula Vista, Calif.
Midfielder Hannah Bebar (Naperville, Ill.) and forwards Ainsley Ahmadian (Naperville, Ill.) and Kalyssa “Kiki” Van Zanten (Buffalo Grove, Ill.) have been called into the camp, which runs through Saturday, Oct. 28.
The U-17 age group, led by head coach Mark Carr, will train concurrently with a U.S. U-18 WNT group. The U-17s are attempting to qualify for the 2018 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Uruguay.
Bebar and Ahamadian competed in the August camp in which the USA defeated England in a pair of matches in Portland, Ore. Bebar started in both games while Ahamadian started and tallied a goal during the USA’s 6-1 victory on Aug. 23.
In mid-July, Van Zanten and Ahmadian represented the U.S. in the U-16 CFA International Women’s Youth Football Tournament in Weifang, China. Ahmadian scored a goal in a wild 5-4 loss to the tournament winner China on July 16. The USA finished runner-up ahead of third-place Japan and fourth-place Canada.
