Old Mill High School sophomore Michelle Salmon recently made the under-16 girls soccer National Team Pool during tryouts at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth.
Salmon, named the Anne Arundel CountySun's girls soccer player of the year for the 1991 season, became one of eight girls from the Eastern region chosen to make the 32-playerpool. The 15-year-old Millersville resident, the only player selected from Maryland, notched a goal for the East in a 3-2 loss to the South team. Her team would go on to finish the round robin at 0-3.
"There were a lot of good athletes there," said Salmon, who scored 23 goals and had three assists in 1991.
