[WPS] Washington's Abby Wambach was the top vote-getter for the 2010 WPS All-Star Game, which will be played June 30 at KSU Soccer Stadium in Kennesaw, Ga. The starting 22 players were selected on ballots from players, coaches, media and online fan voting. Wambach and Marta (FC Gold Pride) earned team captain designations and will help pick the teams at a playground pick-em event two days before the game.

Boston defender Amy LePeilbetreceived the highest number of votes among player balloting for the second year in a row with 70% of players voting for the league’s 2009 Defender of the Year.
