Alcantara Adds Team Philippines Experience to Soccer Resume

MORAGA, Calif. - The Saint Mary's Women's Soccer Team can add another Gael to their list of players with international experience. Maya Alcantara got the chance to train and play with Team Philippines in Sydney, Australia in April of 2022, after they had qualified for the FIFA Women's World Cup for the first time in their history.

The graduating senior had shown interest in training with the team previously, and the current coaching staff extended the invite after her most recent inquiry.

"I had emailed the team multiple times through my college career about playing with them, and they never replied," Alcantara said.
