The Women’s All American team is full of a diverse group of players.
Two (Anne Peterson and Erin Overcash) boasting USA caps in 15s, and two more (Natalie Kosko and Amy Naber) who have received high-level 7s notice, while on the other and of the spectrum, several players from lower-profile programs such as Bailey Johnson (St. Cloud) and Melissa Olman (Molloy).
