As August creeps closer and closer, preseason is just around the corner in Division I women's soccer.
But there was unfinished business for some of the stars set to take the field in the fall. The United Women's Soccer league crowned a champion over the weekend, as the summer league's season came to a close in Round Rock, Texas on Sunday.
California powerhouse Santa Clarita Blue Heat won the title in convincing fashion, defeating Connecticut Fusion by a 5-0 score.
Lena Silano (Long Beach State) earned MVP honors by chipping in a pair of goals in the final. Olufolasade Adamolekun (USC), Angeles Escobar (USC) and Iris Rabot (James Madison) rounded out the scoring in the final, which also feature club soccer standout Gisele Thompson.
The triumph marked the Heat's second national championship in league history, as they won the inaugural title in 2016.
