OAK BROOK (October 8, 2018) – Three Eclipse Select teammates have reported to the U-17 Women’s National Team and will compete in the 2018 U-17 Women’s Invitational. Hannah Bebar (Naperville, Ill.), Isabella Cook (Elmhurst, Ill.) and Ainsley Ahmadian (Naperville, Ill.) will join their U-17 compatriots in Florida for a final test before the roster is selected for the 2018 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Uruguay.
The trio has been selected to the roster by current head coach Mark Carr and will play three games this week, all opponents who have qualified for this year’s World Cup. USA’s opposition includes Columbia on Oct. 10, Mexico on Oct. 12, and England on Oct. 14.
Bebar payed great contributions in lifting the U-17’s to a CONCACAF Championship last spring. Cook is on Team USA’s radar after a stellar stint at the Kansas City, Mo. Training Camp back in July. Ahmadian has worked her way back to national team form after falling to an injury back in November of last year.
