Lauren Bouvia, a senior at Weiser High School in Weiser, Idaho, was chosen for the High School Soccer All-American Game, which was held in early December in Raleigh, North Carolina. It was the fourth annual girl’s game and invited 42 high schoolers from around the country to participate.
Bouvia is the second Idaho girl to be chosen for the game since it began in 2012, following Raimee Sherle, who went last year and now plays soccer at Boise State, where she earned first-team all-conference honors. Bouvia scored 94 goals for Weiser High this season, leading the team to a third-place finish, and scored a record-breaking 127 goals her junior year and earned her team a state title.
In addition, two boys from Idaho have been selected for the boys team in past years, Brett Becia from Capital in 2014 and Timmy Mueller from Post Falls in 2013. The boys game started a year earlier than the girls game in 2011.
Bouvia plans to attend University of California, Davis next fall. In early 2016 her coach, Donald Gregory, said Lauren is “the best female soccer athlete I have ever seen at the high school level.” We’re sure Lauren will go on to do great things at the college level as well. Congratulations, Lauren!
