The last year has been full of firsts for Jannelle Flaws.

The run started during Flaws’ redshirt junior season at Illinois when she emerged as an offensive force on the women’s soccer team. Flaws averaged one goal per game in 2013. She scored a school-record 23 goals, which broke Emily Brown’s previous record of 18 and put the Glenview native in a tie with Rachel Daly of St. John’s for the most goals scored in Division I last season.

This summer, Flaws experienced another milestone when she was called into her first national team training camp. Flaws spent a week in Seattle training with the other members of the U-23 Women’s National Team during the middle of July. She was the only player from the Big Ten to attend.

“It was something I’ve always wanted to do,” Flaws said of playing for the national team. “So to finally be at a point in my life where I’m healthy and good enough to be called into [a training camp] was very exciting.”
