Latsko honored

Veronica Latsko was chosen by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America to its 2012 high School girls’ All-America team. The Peters Township junior will be honored at the national luncheon Jan. 19 in Indianapolis.

It features coaching clinics, workshops and meetings and has the nation’s largest soccer trade show in a 100,000 square-foot exhibition hall.

A Virginia recruit, Latsko has scored 107 goals in three seasons and has led the Lady Indians to three straight state championships. A two-time WPIAL champion, she was also named to the all-state, all-district and all-section teams this fall. She is also a two-time Almanac MVP for girls’ soccer.
