Abbie Faingold was selected to join the 2015 U.S. Maccabi Women’s Open soccer team as a goalkeeper for the European Games which was held in Berlin, Germany from July 27–Aug 5, 2015.
Abbie received her goalkeeper training at Placer United from Gene DuChateau, Matt Scammacca and Matt Bernard. The aforementioned coaches provided Abbie with a solid foundation to prepare her to play at the collegiate level.
With exposure at several college showcases, Abbie received a scholarship to play at Portland State University where she is playing Division I women’s soccer in the Big Sky Conference. Abbie just concluded her freshmen year with the PSU Vikings under Head Coach, Laura Schott. Abbie continued to grow and advance in her goalkeeping under the training and guidance of Coach Chris Lewis, former standout PSU goalkeeper and Portland Thorns player.
This was a tremendous opportunity and experience for Abbie to represent her country at the international level and she is honored to have been selected.
