Robin Reilly is taking her game to a national stage — again.
The Latrobe soccer player was selected for an elite-level experience on the cup circuit for the second year in a row.
A sophomore, Reilly was selected to the 2023 United States Youth Soccer Olympic Development national team pool. She will represent PA West Soccer in April at the Dallas Cup. Reilly, a Division I college prospect, began playing ODP in sixth grade.
“My goal was always to make the national team when I became old enough to qualify, and I was fortunate to make it both years,” Reilly said. “Meeting players and coaches nationwide has been an amazing opportunity for me, and it is also a great learning experience.”
So honored to be selected with such a talented group. Can’t wait for Dallas!!! https://t.co/OzvSoq3jju

Reilly, a versatile attacking midfielder who had 17 goals and 13 assists last fall for Latrobe and earned All-WPIAL honors, advanced through three ID camps: state, regional and inter-regional.
She advanced through pools of 144 and then 72 to make the final 18-player cut.
“When I look back at the process, I am beyond proud to be able to represent PA West and the Eastern Region on the national team,” Reilly said.
