A pair of WPIAL soccer players were selected to play in the High School All-American games set for Dec. 7 in Orlando, Fla.
Six district players were nominated but only Greensburg Central Catholic senior midfielder Nate Ward and Gateway senior goalkeeper Madisyn Neundorfer made the cut.
Neundorfer is one of the top shot-stoppers in the state. She has committed to play at Duquesne. Gateway finished 8-10-1 this season and lost to Plum, 2-1, in the first round of the WPIAL Class AAA playoffs.
Ward, who is from Connellsville, has 25 goals this season, and he has helped lead GCC (14-3-1) to the WPIAL Class A championship game set for 6 p.m. Friday at Highmark Stadium.
He is an Indiana recruit and also kicks and plays wide receiver for the football team, which also could have a playoff game Friday.
