Leah Fortune Update

In the July 2010 issue of Our Game Magazine, we featured 20-year-old American Leah Fortune, who played for the U-20 Brazilian Women’s National Team. A redshirt freshman at the University of Texas, Fortune is second on the team in scoring this fall with four goals and four assists in 13 games. But last Monday, she made a difficult choice. She withdrew from the University of Texas. She did so because she was called up to the Brazilian Women’s National Team to compete at the 2010 Sudamericano Femenino, CONMEBOL’s 2011 World Cup qualifiers. She explains her decision on her blog http://thepearlsprofit.tumblr.com/.
