PITTSBURGH (February 14, 2020) – Tessa Dellarose of the Riverhounds Development Academy (RDA) has been selected to the U.S. U-16 Girls’ National Team for a UEFA Development Tournament this February.
This tournament will take place in Loughborough, England with the first match scheduled against England on Feb. 19. Two additional matches will follow, as the U.S. U-16 Girls’ National Team will play Spain on Feb. 21 and Denmark on Feb. 24.
“Tessa continues to raise the bar, and we are delighted that she gets the opportunity to travel overseas with the U-16 Girls’ National Team,” Academy Director Scott Gibson said. “The experience she will get by spending time at St. George’s Park and competing against England, Spain and Denmark will only help her continue to develop and improve. We wish her the best of luck and know she will represent the program and her country to the best of her ability.”
This past January, Dellarose participated in a U.S. U-16 Girls’ National Team Domestic Training Camp in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. In 2019, she participated in two U.S. Soccer Youth National Team Identification Centers.
