She's No. 1.

1. Zakiya Bywaters, F, (UCLA) - Chicago Red Stars
2. Tiffany McCarty, F, (Florida State) - Washington Spirit
3. Kristie Mewis, MF, (Boston College) - FC Kansas City
4. Lindsi Lisonsbee-Cutshall, D, (BYU) - Sky Blue FC

No idea who these kids are, except for Kristie Mewis because she's a local girl. Casey Short sounds incredibly familiar, too. (She ain't short, though. Just in case you were wondering.) Zakiya Bywaters? Well, she is short, but she wears nerdy glasses and I'm a sucker for that. She also scores a pretty goal in this clip, courtesy of the Richmond Review. Tiffany McCarty, one of two Seminoles, went second. It was hard to find clips of her awesomeness, but you can peep her presentation skills here.And Kristie Mewis...well, she's so dope, she's got her own U.S. Soccer YouTube clip.
