Wauwatosa's Aryssa Mahrt is headed to Florida for Thanksgiving.
The striker, who plays club soccer for FC Wisconsin Eclipse, is one of 24 players named to the U.S. Under-14 girls national team for the U.S. Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program Girls Thanksgiving Interregional in Boca Raton, Fla.
The Under-14 national team will play matches against each of the four U.S. Youth Soccer regional Under-17 ODP teams between Nov. 20 to 25.
Mahrt, who plays for the FC Wisconsin Under-16 team, has been part of three Under-14 national team camps this year under coach April Kater.
Two state players will be part of the Region II Under-17 side that will face the Under-14 national team on Nov. 23: Pleasant Prairie's Haley Johnson (Kenosha Tremper/SC Waukesha) and Sheboygan Falls' Bonnie Lacey (Sheboygan North/Lakeshore United).
Johnson, a forward, has verbally committed to play for UW-Milwaukee starting in 2018, while defender-midfielder Lacey has committed to Marquette.
