The next Mia Hamm? Today, the New York Times ran a full page article (!) on a 12 year old soccer player named Olivia Moultrie. She already has a soccer scholarship to attend the University of North Carolina -- and is training with European clubs. Regarding the problem of the U.S. U-20s, April Heinrichs is quoted as saying that none of the American women on the team had participated on a first division professional team -- but 19 Japanese, 18 Spaniards, 19 French, and 14 English had. The article says that "the best talents from Europe and elsewhere have increasingly been following a path long open to boys by turning professional in the late teenage years." Well, if you look at Ellie Carpenter of Portland, 18 and accomplished, maybe that is a correct statement.
