Berkeley Prep sophomore goalkeeper Bryane Heaberlin was selected to be the starting goaltender for the U-17 Women’s US National Team that will compete in the CONCACAF U-17 Championships in Costa Rica from March 10-20, Buccaneers coach Ken Roberts said Monday.
Heaberlin heard the news upon returning from a national team camp in Sunrise this weekend.
The event will serve as a World Cup qualifier, with the top two teams heading to the U-17 World Cup in Trinidad and Tobago in September.
The 16-game, 11-day event will open on March 10 with the US playing Haiti, ending with the championship game on March 20. Games will be streamed live free of charge on concacaf.com.
Heaberlin led the Buccaneers to their first state title match in February. Berkeley was 20-1-1 in its last 22 games heading into the championship game, which Plantation American Heritage won on penalty kicks.
Despite missing four games to participate in national team camps, Heaberlin tallied nine shutouts and an .846 goals against average.
