[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 LePeilbet received 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. Among the coaches vote, Wambach, Marta and Kelly Smith were the only three players to be selected on all eligible coach’s ballots for a perfect 100% percentage. The top selections within the media were Washington Freedom’s Sonia Bompastor (100%) and Atlanta Beat’s Eniola Aluko (100%), while the fans voted Wambach and Marta as their top two WPS All-Stars respectively.

The 2010 WPS All-Stars features first-year players Ramona Bachmann (Atlanta Beat), Lauren Cheney (Boston Breakers) and Brittany Taylor (Sky Blue FC).
