CASPER, Wyo. — The High Plains Select soccer club is hot off the heels of their Northwest Regional win in Seattle, Washington. The team is now gearing up for their games in the National Championship, held this upcoming weekend in Denver.
The club, based here in Casper, recruits players from all over the region, including Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, and Montana. Over 60 high-school-aged players make up the team, many of which hold All-State or All-Conference titles, according to coach Jason Redmond.
High Plains Select is a tournament and college showcase club, competing in six to seven tournaments a year and only practicing together once. The team relies on the skills, knowledge, and dedication of the girls, Redmond says.
Both the U16 and U17 girls teams made history when they took home the Regional Championship titles in Seattle; this marks the first time a Wyoming soccer team has made it to the National Championship.
Four High Plains Select players represent Casper – Madison Burnett and Paige Hill from Kelly Walsh, and Jordan Redmond and Hannah Trumbull from Natrona County High School. “I’m excited
High Plains Select will compete starting Friday afternoon with games running through Sunday. If they win their bracket, they will continue with games on Monday.
