Yeah, they are some of the best young players in the United States. Yeah, they made the U-17 Women's World Cup Team. And yeah, they are getting ready for a huge test on the world's stage. But that doesn't mean they are excused from homework. The U.S. players have almost nightly study halls in which they make sure to keep up with with their school work. Math books, history books, civics books, English books. They are all cracked open in the team meeting/meal room. With the many teachers and school administrators showing flexibility with the frequent travel of these talented young women, it's a requirement that they keep up their end of the academic bargain. So hit the books they do...(Wait, that's bad English. Maybe the WNT Blog should attend study hall).
