All-Time WA Women's Roster

As part of the 50th Anniversary of Washington Youth Soccer, we wanted to know who were the best players to come out of WA over the past 50 years.  During the first half of 2016, a public vote was held to see who the soccer community felt were the best players.  Now, we've asked a panel of long-time, WA soccer experts to help create the best roster of 18 women that WA has produced.  The list of All-Time women's players features local high school and collegiate stars, professional and U.S. National Team standouts, and the FIFA Player of the Century.

Guest Selections:

Chuck Sekyra
Amy Griffin
Colleen Hacker
Lesle Gallimore
