  1. Every year the list grows both in numbers and stature. My complements to the Coaches. Utah is producing some great talent.

  2. Congratz to all these awesome girl! I’d like to see some University of Utah girls represented on here, we won Regionals last year and made it all the way to the WCLA Division 2 Championship Game! Not to mention Sasha McKee got All American and broke the record for the most saves in the national tournament. Also UVU and Utah State has great players as well!

  3. You forgot about Janzen Vertner and Ellie Carpenter (Brighton) playing for Fort Lewis College 2012-2016, where they had stellar seasons. You should go look at their bios, and lengthy list of awards, including Ellie Carpenter was chosen in 2016 as a NCAA Div 2 All Star.
