Forward shines as sun sets on USYS National Championships

It was an experience they will surely never forget. HMMS Eagle FC Impact represented Region I as champions and ultimately earned a spot on the National stage. Though the results were not what they had hoped for, there is nothing to hang their heads about when you consider no other team from Central PA played to the level that these ladies did this past season.

Injuries were no excuse as it was the “next lady up” mentality that got them through this season. In the end they truly were a team. Many new faces received significant playing time to help Impact achieve such a high level of success this season.

Forward, Julia Raich, was named to the Best 11 at the event for her stellar play on the pitch. Raich has collected international recognition during her rise through the HMMS program and still has more to come! She was featured on the United States Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program and spend some time shining in Europe this Spring.

Everyone at HMMS is proud of you ladies! We cannot wait to see how you grow next season and beyond.
