[STANFORD WOMEN] Stanford, the 2009 NCAA Division I runner-up, has signed a recruiting class that includes U.S. under-18 national team defender Kendall Romine and the Payne twins, Shelby and Syndey.

The Cardinal, who went 25-1 in 2009 while winning the Pac-10 Conference title and going undefeated into the NCAA final, graduated forward Kelley O’Hara, who led the nation in scoring and became Stanford’s first Hermann Trophy winner, as college soccer’s best player.

O’Hara and defender Ali Riley each were selected in the first round of the Women’s Professional Soccer draft and were among six graduating seniors.

Romine was the Cal-South 2009 Player of the Year for her club, the So Cal Blues. She was scheduled to play for the U.S. U-18s to Spain in February but broke her foot and instead is hoping to return to the team in July.

The Payne twins, both forwards, both starred at the IMG Soccer Academy.

Other Stanford recruits include forward Natalie Griffen (Mustang Earthquakes), midfielder Taylor McCann (Juventus Sport Club) and goalie Emily Oliver (Windy City Pride).

    Curious that the Stanford news release gives the clubs with which the recruits have been affiliated, but not the high schools from which they graduated.
