Soccer is the world’s biggest sport.
In Southern California, it’s kind of a big deal, too.
Seven local girls’ soccer players were named to Cal South’s U.S. Olympic Development Program player pools.
Arielle Shipp of Westlake and Thousand Oaks’ Gabriela Suarez are in the 1995 age group summer pool.
Kayla Bredberg (Thousand Oaks), Ella Dederick (Camarillo), Dana Fujikuni (Moorpark), Sarah Ishikawa (Westlake) and Alison Neveu (Thousand Oaks) made the 1996 pool.
