McLean Youth Soccer's ECNL 99 Girls team, coached by TF Director Nadir Moumen, went undefeated in eight straight tournaments during the 2015-16 soccer season, including the OBGC Capital Cup (Olney, MD), the Discovery Cup (Germantown, MD), the Bethesda Premier Cup (Germantown, MD), the CASL Showcase (Raleigh, NC), the ECNL Winter Showcase (Sanford, FL), the Jefferson Cup (Richmond, VA), the ECNL San Diego National Showcase and the PDA Girls Showcase (Somerset, NJ).

The squad went 23-0-2 and were Champions at OBGC, the CASL Showcase, the Bethesda Premier Cup and the Jefferson Cup. In 22 games, the team’s offense scored 80 goals (an average of 3.2 per game) while its defense conceded just 14 (an average of 0.56 per game).

“I am very happy for the team because not only were they very successful in terms of results, but they also played excellent soccer and showcased very well in front of the college coaches who came to watch them,” said Head Coach Nadir Moumen. A total of more than 400 coaches watched the team from the sidelines at the Bethesda, CASL, ECNL and Jefferson Cup venues.

The team was not able to advance to the National Finals after its showing at the ECNL U16 Playoffs in Oceanside, CA, from June 23-28.

As of June 2016, eight players on the team (all 2018 graduates) have committed to college programs: Claire Constant (University of Virginia), Grace Sklopan (Virginia Tech), Jillian Gonzalez (Army West Point), Rebecca Crouch (University of South Florida), Megan Fisher (Hofstra), Lucy Kellogg (University of Pennsylvania), Abbey Duncan (University of Pennsylvania) and Jasmine Bryant (Elon University).
