We are proud to announce that current Mexico National Team midfielder Fabiola Ibarra will join the club for the 2016 WPSL season.

Originally from Jalisco, Mexico, Ibarra got her first taste of international soccer when she was called into the U17 Mexican National team in 2006. In 2010, Ibarra played at the U17 World Cup qualifiers in Costa Rica where Mexico finished the competition as runners up. That same year she played at the U17 World Cup in Trinidad & Tobago where Ibarra´s outstanding performances throughout the competitions led her to be apart of the 2014 U20 World Cup qualifiers in the Cayman Islands where Mexico, once again, would win finish as runners up.. Her progression and hard work continued to capture the eye of the coaching staff and she was named to the squad to travel to the 2014 U20 World Cup in Canada.  As Ibarra continues her career with Mexico´s national team, she gains experience along her team playing in various tournaments worldwide in Sweden, China, and the U.S. 

In 2015, Ibarras career took a big step forward as she was included in the full national team to travel to the Women's World Cup in Canada where in the group game against England, Ibarra scored her first World Cup goal!  Ibarra has also played in the PanAmerican games and earn a bronze medal with her team in 2015.
