[U.S. UNDER-17 WOMEN]The Ponte Vedra Storm (Morgan Brian and Kaili Torres) and Dallas Texans (Clarissa Wedemeyer and Abby Smith) are the only clubs with two players on the U.S. under-17 women's national team that begins Concacaf qualifying Wednesday in Costa Rica for the 2010 Under-17  Women's World Cup.

Brian, the lone holdover from the 2008 team that finished second at the world championships, is the most capped player at the U-17 level on the roster, having played 12 international matches and scored seven goals.

All games at the CONCACAF U-17 Women’s Championships will be played on artificial turf at Alejandro Morera Soto Stadium in Alajuela, just outside of the capital of San Jose.

The two semifinal winner will advance to the world championship later in the year in Trinidad & Tobago.
