Canadian striker Sinclair headed into USL Hall of Fame
Canadian striker Christine Sinclair is headed into the United Soccer Leagues Hall of Fame, another accomplishment for her jam-packed resume.
The 28-year-old from Burnaby, B.C., played four seasons in the W-League with the Vancouver Breakers and Vancouver Whitecaps.
The powerful forward scored 23 goals and added 10 assists for the Whitecaps during her three-year stint with the squad.
Canada's captain has been the Canadian Soccer Association's women's player of the year each of the past six years, and has been a finalist for FIFA women's world player of the year five times.
Sinclair is among a nine-member 2011 class, which will be honoured at the USL Hall of Fame Banquet on Dec. 16.
Kyle Krause, owner of the Des Moines Menace, and Wilmington Hammerheads coach David Irving are the USL men's inductees.
Northern Virginia Majestics general manager Tim Schweitzer, Charlotte Lady Eagles coach Lee Horton and Florence Omagbemi, a former player with the Hampton Roads Prinhas, join Sinclair in the women's category.
Baltimore Blast owner Edwin Hale Sr., Milwaukee Wave coach Keith Tozer and Tatu, a former player for the Wichita Wings and Dallas Sidekicks, are the Major Indoor Soccer League inductees.
