MORGANTOWN — WVU offensive lineman Kyle Bosch accepted an invitation to play in the 93rd East-West Shrine Game, at 3 p.m. Jan. 20, at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla.

A strong performance at the all-star game can greatly enhance a player’s chances of a career in the NFL. More than 100 players from last year’s game signed with professional teams this spring, and more than 70 made final NFL rosters.

The beneficiary of the game is Shriners Hospitals for Children, an international pediatric specialty health care system that treats children in orthopaedics, spinal cord injuries, cleft lip and palate, and burns, regardless of the families’ ability to pay.

WOMEN’S SOCCER

Five Mountaineers earned United Soccer Coaches all-region honors.

Senior forward Michaela Abam, senior defender Amandine Pierre-Louis and sophomore goalkeeper Rylee Foster were named to the All-South Region first team.

Senior midfielder Carla Portillo and junior defender Bianca St. Georges were named to the second team.

Abam, Pierre-Louis and Foster are now eligible for United Soccer Coaches all-America honors.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

Junior guard Tynice Martin was named to the Wade Trophy Watch List, as announced by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA).

Martin and senior forward Teana Muldrow were named to the Citizen Naismith Trophy Watch List, as announced by the Atlanta Tipoff Club.

The Wade Trophy is given annually to the best player in college women’s basketball. Martin is one of 25 players selected to the list. Four finalists will be announced in mid-March.

The Naismith Trophy is presented annually to the top women’s player by the Atlanta Tipoff Club.

A total of 50 players make up the current list, with a midseason cut to 30 players set for release in February.
