FX at the FIFA 2015 Women’s World Cup
St. Francis Xavier Soccer Academy would like to wish former student Selenia Iacchelli the best of luck during the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup held in Canada.
The midfielder and former NCAA player was selected to the squad looking to be crowned World Champions at the 24 team event.
Selenia was an excellent student both on and off the field winning multiple Golden Ball awards in the Academy but also achieving the Honor roll in each of her three years at FX.
She continued her success at the NCAA Division 1 level playing for the University of Nebraska and Edmonton Victoria soccer club as a senior player.
Her jersey hangs proud in the FX soccer hallway along with a select group of academy students who have achieved special moments in the game and in the community.
Director and coach Saporito remembers her as: “An absolute joy to work with striving every day to get better. Her approach to individual training was something special driven by her passion and enjoyment for the game.”
