Christine Nairn, the former Archbishop Spalding girls  soccer superstar who will begin her college career at Penn State this fall, has had a big summer playing for the U.S. Women’s National Team.
In May, Nairn earned her first cap when she appeared in a 4-0 U.S. win over Canada and followed with her first international goal, on July 22, when she netted the only goal in a 1-0 win by the Americans.  The opponent once again was Canada.
Nairn has been groomed for national team stardom over the last several years, as she has starred for the U16, U17, U18 and U20 national teams.  Last summer she was a key performer for the U20 squad which won a World Cup Championship.  In that tournament, Nairn registered an assist in a 3-0 win over England which helped the Americans advance to the semifinals.
At Spalding, Nairn was a four-year starter and a four-time All-American and three-time Gatorade Maryland State Player of the Year.  She is also the school’s all-time leader in goals, assists and points.
