LANCASTER, Pa. - December 29, 2017 - An intense event from the opening day. The 2017 STX Select event held great purpose as it was the final selection opportunity for athletes to be named to the U.S. U-17 and U-19 Women’s National Teams. Sixty-seven of the top women's junior athletes in the country gathered at Spooky Nook Sports in Lancaster, Pa. from December 26-29, as they competed and showcased their skills in front of the Junior USWNT coaching staff in hopes to catch the eye of a selector.
