U.S. U-20 WNT call-up 'a dream' for Eclipse Select alumna Alexa Ben

DePaul's Alexa Ben
Eclipse Select alumna and DePaul freshman Alexa Ben (Schaumburg, Ill.) enjoyed a wonderful stretch during her opening collegiate campaign: Big East Conference title, Big East Freshman of the Year and an unbeaten streak through the entire regular season, to name a few. But one thing had been missing in Ben’s soccer career – a call-up to the national team level. That omission finally was put to rest.

Ben is coming off a weeklong camp with the U.S. U-20 Women’s National Team at U.S. Soccer’s National Training Center in Carson, Calif., and the experience and recognition were something that she valued immensely.

“It meant a lot to me to be recognized,” Ben said. “I don’t think going into my college season that I would have expected this. It’s an amazing accomplishment, and it’s been a dream just to be called up. The experience there was a great process and learning experience, to play alongside 23 of the best players in the country there.”
