ESPN Announced on Thursday morning that Circle Pines, Minn., resident Jenna Roering has been named to the 22 women Gatorade State Fall Girls Soccer Players of the Year Team.

The Centennial junior forward scored 34 goals and passed for 12 assists this past season, leading the Cougars (18-2-2) to the Class AA state semifinals. A member of the Minnesota Thunder Academy and U.S. Soccer Under-17 Women’s National Team player pool, she is a two-time Minnesota State High School Soccer Coaches Association Class AA First Team All-State selection and a two-time Class AA All-State Tournament Team honoree. Roering has 70 goals and 26 assists to this point in her prep career. She has also maintained a 3.39 GPA in the classroom.

The ESPN article states that Roering has volunteered locally as a youth soccer coach and mentor, as part of area food drives for the needy and as a peer promoter of healthy eating in the Centennial High cafeteria.

    Jenna played some great soccer last fall. It would be great to see her play soccer for the U of M when she is done with HS soccer.

    Soccer Boy, I don’t think you read the article. Last line: “Roering has verbally committed to play soccer at Santa Clara University in the fall of 2013.”

    Yeah, I read the article and I am well aware of her “verbal” commitment. After having been involved in college athletics myself, I know how verbal commitments can change with some encouragement from the hometown fans. Just expressing my opinion.

    PS: Santa Clara or the U of M–I would go to Santa Clara. I love that place!!!
